Hi I'm Samuel

I'm currently a missionary in Salem, Oregon, I was in a Super-Bowl commercial, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20 years old and from Colorado Springs. I really like doing a lot of things. I like playing sports, especially football and basketball, music, writing, and motorcycles. I'm a linguistics major at BYU and I'm hoping to learn many languages and travel the world. I love the gospel and I'm proud to be serving as a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this Church and its teachings are the only way to be eternally happy. I have felt the hand of God in my life, and I know that he knows I have. The more I draw close to the Savior, and study his teachings and his life, the more I am sure that this is His Church, and I won't leave it for the world.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day to day. I've served as a teacher a couple times, I have been blessed with many leadership opportunities in and out of the Church. Because of these callings, I try to make sure that I set a good example those who I meet. I believe in making people's days brighter. Thus, I strive to serve and uplift. And also have fun.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Joseph Smith, the prophet of the restoration of the Gospel, said that "...a man filled with the love of God, is not content with blessing his family alone, but ranges through the whole world, anxious to bless the whole human race.” I've felt that love of God. I love this gospel and I want to do unto others as Christ has done unto me; that is, change lives for the better. I know that the Gospel brings joy and peace of mind and soul. And that is why I have devoted 2 years of my life to proclaim this message: that Jesus Christ lives, that He loves me, that He loves you, and that He has restored His Church to the earth. And that that Church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Show more Show less
