Hi I'm Eric David Borland

I grew up in sandy utah. I am going to serve a mission in Santa Rosa California. I am a mormon.

About Me

I grew up near the mountains and my parents always found it important to take me and my siblings camping and spending a lot of times in the outdoors so i enjoy biking, boating, skiing, hiking, river rafting, surfing, and basically anything outdoors! I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

Originally I was a mormon because it was my parents religion but as I aged I continued to go to church, pray, and read the scriptures. One day I was skiing with my brother and as I was going up the lift I was thinking about how I needed to decide now if I was going to serve a mission and if I believed in this religion. Halfway down the run I left my brother and went off into the trees and prayed. As I said amen I heard a bird chirp and looked up and saw the clouds moving and as I was marveling the beauty i felt peace come over me and a thought came into my mind "how could it not be true? ". I know this gospel is true and that we can reach happiness if we follow it. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church and I have always gone to church every Sunday and participated in all of the activities and service projects possible. I am leaving to go on my mission for 2 years to preach the gospel to others so they can feel the happiness that I have received from participating in this religion.
