Hi I'm Elder Hagedorn

I am a Missionary in Cochabamba Bolivia who loves to sing and preach and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fun loving high school student! I love to watch good movies and listen to all types of music. My passion is making people laugh and I just love making people feel good. I love playing basketball although I'm not good enough to play on the school team. I hope to attend BYU shortly after my mission. I didn't become active in the church till I was 12 and we moved from Utah to Oklahoma.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this Gospel with all my heart. Each day when I read and study the Book of Mormon I feel overwhelming peace and I know that it is the word of God. I know this church is run by the authority of God. I've chosen to be a member of this church because I can't deny the feelings that I have felt from the Holy Ghost. I've prayed and asked God and He has answered me.

How I live my faith

Living in Oklahoma has been a blessing and a curse. I'm not surrounded by virtuous and standard living people, but it does give me loads of oppurtunities to share my beliefs. I loved my youth program and all the fun activities we did. I loved being able to bring my friends to Wednesday night activities because it always felt welcoming.
