Hi I'm Kerby Olsen

I am from Logan, UT. I am serving a mission in Chile. I'm a lover of animals, sports and fantasy books. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

Born and raised in Logan, Utah. I am very outgoing and I love life. I love to be outside, whether it be playing sports, reading books, or playing with my dogs. I love music, and it is often one of the things that gets me through the bad days! I am the youngest of 4 kids and am a huge family guy, I love kids and can´t wait to have some of my own! Before my mission, I attended Utah State University, majoring in Business-Marketing, and plan to pursue that after my mission. I love playing all sports, but mostly soccer and basketball. Summer is my favorite time of the year, and I love going long-boarding and being out and about messing around with my friends on hot summer nights.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been Mormon my entire life and am very thankful that I grew up in the Church. It has been an amazing blessing for me, and I am very lucky to have had such great examples around me that have encouraged Church and supported me in serving a mission. I am a missionary because I want other people to feel the great joy that the gospel has brought me in my life and the tremendous blessing it continues to be in my life. I have a firm testimony that this is the only true Church on this earth, and I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and he translated the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and I have come to know for myself that it is true. And I couldn't be happier about it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the people of Chile and inviting them to come unto Christ. They are a very loving people and are very receptive to this restored Gospel. Their great faith has increased my own faith as I have served them. They often sacrifice so much in order to come unto Christ and they have increased my faith and love for my Savior more than I thought possible.
