Hi I'm Rob

I was born in the USA. I love anything outdoors or with friends or chiling inside. I love my family and friends and I love tacos.

About Me

I am 19 years of age and currently serving in the Ukraine, Kyiv mission, Ukrainian speaking. I love this church, my family, my friends, and being a missionary. Pre-mission life for me consisted of Lifeguarding, earning my Associates Degree, doing fun/exciting activites, and spending time with my family and friends. My favorite hobbies are: mountain biking, swimming, playing rugby, snowboarding, being with friends/family, studying the scriptures, and playing a video game or two.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into the Church, but that's not the reason why I am Mormon. I am Mormon because I literally owe everything good in my life to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints-- EVERYTHING. I am a Mormon because this is literally Jesus Christ's church (as established in the Scriptures) restored on the earth through a modern-day prophet.

How I live my faith

Before my mission I was first counselor in my YSA (Young Single Adult) branch. I tried my best to be friendly to everyone and show others how obediently living the gospel blesses and changes their lives. I was fortunate enough to have a vehicle, so I often gave others rides to church activities. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout, definitely thanks to my mother, and noticed how living the attributes in the Scout Law makes you more Christ-like. Right now, to live my faith I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This is literally the opportunity of a lifetime and I am so greatful to my younger, highschool/college self for living worthily so I can now be trusted by the Lord to serve a mission for His church. As a missionary, I study the Christ-like attributes in Preach My Gospel and try to learn about them and (hopefuly) develop them.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Yes! One of my favorite stories to read about Christ is when he teaches about his gospel in 3 Nephi 11. Show more Show less
