Hi I'm Tim

I grew up in UT. I love to play baseball. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in UT all of my life. I am the oldest of 3 children. My family is definitely a sports family. Both me and my brother play baseball and hope to be able to play in college. I also enjoy basketball and football. I am currently serving a mission in Salem Oregon, Spanish Speaking but before i came out, i attended college for one year. When i return, i would like to go to either medical, or dental school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. My parents are both members and they had always encouraged me to gain a testimony for myself. When I was in Jr. high school, i really had a desire to know if the church was true. I decided that i needed to know whether or not i was going to serve a mission. I prayed about my concerns and recieved an answer that this was the true church. I know that this gospel is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of god, and is another testament of Jesus Christ just as the Bible is. I know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for my sins. I also know that He was resurected and that He lives today. I know that i can live with my family for eternity if i keep the commandments and live worthily. I am grateful for the knowledge that death is not the end. I am grateful to know that when i die, i will return to live with God. It gives me so much peace to know that even when good people die, they are in a good place and that i will have the opportunity to see them again because of the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

In my ward i had the opportunity to be a home teacher. I had three families that i home taught once a month. It was a great experience to serve other ward members. I am currently serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to serve in the Salem Oregon Mission! As a full time missionary for the church, i have the opportunity to talk with many people daily about my faith, and how we can come closer to Jesus Christ. I live my faith through serving others and trying to help them find the peace that i have found through my savior, Jesus Christ.
