Hi I'm Todd Southam

Born in Dillon, Montana! Serving in the Arizona Scottsdale Mission! I love missionary work, playing basketball and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in the Church. I am the oldest of 4. I have 2 sisters and a brother. My parents were both raised in the Church. But they gave us all the choice to go. After a lot of reading and pondering I came to the conclusion that what I have been learning throughout the years is true. I had no doubt that Heavenly Father loves us and that is why he has called another Prophet and Apostles to teach us His ways. I know that the same Church that was organized by Jesus Christ is now back. because of this I am now serving a mission in the Arizona Scottsdale Mission. I am loving every minute of it! I know this is where the Lord wants me and to share His message with the people. I love to share the Gospel to those around me because I know that it is true and it brings happiness in my life and I want to share that happiness with those around me. I also love the outdoors and enjoying all of Gods creations. Sports has played a big role in my life growing up, besides my family. Basketball being the big one. If I could I would play basketball all the time. I am grateful for my dad for teaching me to be a better player in whatever I chose to do. Thanks to my family and friends who helped, I am an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because, I know that "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" is the only true Church and the only Church that has the fulness of the Gospel. I also believe in a Prophet who leads the people who are willing to follow him. When Christ was on earth he had 12 Apostles who would help him share the messages that the Lord would want them to share with the people and that is why we have a Prophet here on earth today, cause God had called him to lead us. Amos 3:7 - "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealleth his secret unto his servants the prophets." When I go to Church and partake of the Sacrament I renew my covenants that I promised to follow. I am thankful for my loving Parents who have raised me in this Church.

How I live my faith

I give 2 years of my life to serve the Lord and invite others to come unto Him. By living my faith I fulfill my calling as a missionary. Also leading by example and being nice to others.
