Hi I'm Mikhail

I was born in Idaho, I've lived all over the world. I'm a missionary in the Stockholm Sweden Mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Right now, I am a full-time missionary serving in the best missionary in the world, The Sweden Stockholm MIssion. Before my mission, I love to wrestle, play american football, and run. My goal and aspirations are to do something that invloves sports, perverable play football. I'm super short and I like eating sandwiches.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in the church when I was 8, the age for when children are considered accountable for their sins, and then for the next many years, I have tried to gain my own testimony of the church and not rely on my parents or other testimonies, so on a priest quorum trip in washington which prepared us to serve missions, I had a "enos like" experience. I knelt down before the Lord and offered up the desires of my heart to Him and I recieved the answer that this is indeed Gods church once again restorted to the Earth. I know that Joseph Smith was called by God to restore the true church back onto the earth and that the book of mormon, which he translated by the gift and power of God is the word of God. I know that this church is true and that God does live and will surely come again to rule among us, his choosen people. He is my Lord, my God, and my King!

How I live my faith

For years, I have been trying to live my life the best I can. I have made so many mistakes in live but I know that no one is perfect. Except for the Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that through my poor decisions and the many mistakes I will make in this live, The Atonement of Jesus Christ and his Gospel, can save me. What I do to try and be the best person that I can be is that growing up, I accepted many leadership positions in the young mens quorums and then I was called to be the Gospel Docterines teacher in my branch in Italy. It was a great learning experience that helped me to prepare for my mission. I am now serving the Lord in the blesses country of Sweden and declare to the people of the eternal truthfulness of the Gospel. I know that if I should labor all my days in crying repentance unto this people and bring many sould unto the Lord, my joy will be so great, and I shall dwell in the eternal courts of the father.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We do not worship Joseph Smith. We simple respect him and praise him for the work he did on this earth. He isn't a deity, but I know that he is a prophet called by God to restore His church and kingdom onto the earth. He is however, heralded, for the work he did do on this earth, in which he did give his life for his friends, and was murdered at Carthage and so was his brother Hyrum. "They lived for glory, they died for glory, and glory is their eternal reward." I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet called of God and that he was just a prophet, and nothing more, but he "has done more, save Jesus only, for the Salvation of men in this world who have ever lived in it."
