Hi I'm Brad Nelson

I grew up in Utah, and grew up in the church. I will be serving my mission in Russia.

About Me

Well for starters, I am the youngest of five children. I love sports, my favorites are soccer, snowboarding, and skateboarding. I grew up in the church, and I have recently received my mission call. I leave in February, and have been called to the Russia Novosibrsk mission. I have a strong belief in this church, and I know that it is true. I also love to give service, and can not wait to bring people to the true church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I was raised in this church. But I continue to follow it, because I know it is true, and it helps me through out my life more, and more. Every important decision in my life, is help made by the standards of the church. I honestly don't know where I would be at in this life without the church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through scripture study, praying, going to church each week, and service. Right now, I have been helping out in the nursery at church. Its quite the challenge, but I love it. Last summer, I went on a service trip to Mexico. I went for a week, and with my group we built 3 houses for those who had non. It was an amazing experience, and though it was hard work, It was so rewarding to know how much of an impact that will have on the lifes of the members of those families. My favorite commandment is To Love Thy Neighbor, because it brings such joy to everyone involved, and if every person lived by it, the world would be a much better place.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Brad Nelson
As a whole, we believe that families can be together forever. And that God loves families. Personally, This is one of the greatest blessings for me. I love my family so much, and knowing that if we get sealed in the temple, than we can be together forever. My family hasnt been able to go through the temple yet, but I hope within the next couple years, we will be able to. It is also a blessing that we can do work for the dead, so incase any tragedies happen, you can still be sealed to your family, even if they are no longer on Earth. It truly is amazing.
