Hi I'm Stetson

I grew up in Fool Creek, Utah best place ever. Im a Cowboy, a redneck, drive trucks, ride dirt bikes, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, My name is Stetson Finlinson. I grew up in a place you cant find on a map, called Fool Creek, Utah. It was settled by my great great grandpa and we've been there ever since. Im the son of a 4th generation farmer and plan on taking it over someday. Right now im a full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Im serving in the New York New York South Mission that covers Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. I ran about 100 acres of hay, rode horses, drove trucks, went hunting, competed in rodeos, Im a cowboy, a redneck, and love having a good time, just so long as its within the bounds of God's commandments.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church. My great great grandpa George Finlinson joined the Church in England in the 1800's, came across the nation in a handcart, and sacrificed everything he had for the God he loved. This church, although I may have taken it for granted in the past, means the world to me. This is THE church of Jesus Christ. The same church he started in the New Testament is back today. His life is the ultimate example of how we ought to live, and the entire purpose of mankind and this world is to return and live with God again someday, and because of Jesus Christ I know that I can do this. I know that Joseph Smith really did see God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ, and that through him, all the necessary priesthood authority for the ordinances, and knowledge of the Plan of Salvation, and modern day revelation are back on the earth, all preparatory to the 2nd coming of the Messiah. The Book of Mormon is an additional witness that Jesus is the Christ and that through him, all mankind may be saved.

How I live my faith

Right now im a full time missionary for the church, serving in New York, helping people. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the Restored Gospel through Faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. I do this in many ways. I teach people what we believe, do service projects, basically whatever Jesus would do if he were in New York today.
