Hi I'm Andy Nelson

I live in San Diego. I served a mission in the Philippines. I am Batman. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love my wife. I love soccer, drawing, making stuff, CNC machines, biking, soccer, jacuzzis, chocolate, ice cream, sleeping, hiking, uno, computers, and Batman. I served a 2 year mission in the Philippines (Laoag Mission) and now speak Tagalog and some Ilocano. I love the Philippines. I am currently a video technician for a video conversion business and go to school full time in the hopes of becoming a machinist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is lead by Jesus Christ himself through our living prophet. I testify that God is not silent. I know that the Book Of Mormon and the Bible contain God's word and testify of Christ. I'm grateful that we have a loving Heavenly Father who has a plan of happiness for us. I know that everything happens for a reason and that in the end the righteous will be blessed. I know that families can be made eternal through sacred promises made with God through His holy priesthood. I know this church is true because I have felt the Holy Ghost witness it to me and I hold that witness dear.

How I live my faith

I try to follow Christ's example. I love studying the new testament and learning from his example and teachings. I know the scriptures are God's words revealed through prophets and I try my best to follow God's will. "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." - Matthew 7:21. I love going to church and learning from others and hearing the testimonies of others. I also love service - it always make me happy to be alive.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?
