Hi I'm Nathan Kramer

I grew up in Utah. Going on a mission in March. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old missionary from Utah. I have made the decision to serve an honorable full time mission. I am a believer, I have a testimony that this church is true. I've been blessed with a kind and loving family that supports me with every decision I make. My parents raised 6 kids under the LDS standards and morals. I plan on doing the same, and hope I do as well as them. I am the second kid in my family to serve a mission, it's through my examples and family that I am currently serving right now.

Why I am a Mormon

The examples my brothers and father set for me are such a great blessing. They live the standards of the church and follow the teachings. I know that this is a true church for I have read these books and have felt the spirit over come me with comfort and truth. Through my mission I will be able to share my testimony and to bring others unto the church with their own faith and knowledge of its truthfulness. I'm a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Before my mission I would attend my church meetings every Sunday. I'd attend my priesthood meetings and participate as they needed me, may it be a prayer or a lesson. I visited two family's in my neighborhood with my father as part of a home teaching assignment. We checked in on the family's and made sure they were doing well and to see if they needed anything. We'd tell them a spiritual story and share our thoughts and testimony's of our faith. I'm currently serving a mission. I left March 2013 to serve as a missionary for my church for 2 years. I have been on a crazy journey, it started out in Alabama Birmingham but now I serve in Peru where I was originally called. This mission has blessed me so much, I have such a strong testimony of this church and that my Heavenly Father loves me and he will always take care of me/us. Missions are not easy, I have the opportunity to learn a new language and to teach the gospel. All in Spanish. Seeing the gospel in peoples lives is life changing. I haven't made my journey to Peru yet but I am so excited to share this happiness with them. Missions require that we fund the 2 years ourselves and leave our family's without seeing them, only contacting them by emails and letters once a week. It's hard but it is so worth all of the blessings! We leave our family's for 2 years so that family's can be together forever.
