About Me

Hi! I'm Connor Ian Forrest! But at the moment, I'm just known as Elder Forrest! Ha! I am from the Oregon Coast! I'm am on my mission to Novosibirsk, Russia right now! I love love LOVE Japan. I studied Japanese throughout School. I love Tokyo and Okinawa so much. :) I studied at Brigham Young University - Idaho. :) I love Russia!!! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I want to be. Not because of my parents, or because I was raised Mormon, but because the gospel of Jesus Christ is really the only true way to happiness; and in our church, we have the fullness of it. :) Sometimes we might think life is hard and unfair, well of course it is!! haha! And I am grateful that it is hard, and for the fact that we all have weaknesses in this world. Like my favorite scripture in the Book of Mormon (Ether 12:27) says, we need to be humble in order to come unto Christ to be strengthened in our weaknesses. And then, to our surprise, are weaknesses become are greatest strengths. I know that this is true! And I am thankful that we have scriptures to help us answer all of our questions in life! I love the Lord! :)

How I live my faith

Right now I serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I invite people here in Russia everyday to follow Jesus Christ. I absolutely love this gospel, and what I do. Even though things get hard sometimes, I know I have a great family always rooting for me at home. :) And I know that Heavenly Father is always there for me, no matter what. I am so grateful for the fact that I can always rely on my savior Jesus Christ, and that there is always someone who understands, and is there for me no matter what. :)
