Hi I'm Eli

I grew up in Washington. I love playing football, basketball, and baseball. And I'm a mormon.

About Me

My name is Eli. I play football, basketball and baseball. I love every chance I have go out and play a sport. I come from a huge family of 10 kids. So even for Mormons that's big. I have seven sisters and two brothers. I love my family so much though and I could never imagine life without them.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but sometimes I have thought that it would be easier to not be a member of the church. For me, to gain a testimony of the church, I had to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if this church was true. I am so glad heavenly father answers my prayers just like he can answer yours. Your heavenly father wants what is best for you and will give you so many chances to follow him. By following him you can receive that confirmation and be able to partake of the joy that the gospel brings.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am a full-time missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints. I have so much fun as a missionary and it is an incredibly enjoyable experience to bring happiness to the lives of others. I love the opportunity I have to read the Book of Mormon and for the teachings it contains and to share the gospel with others.
