Hi I'm Evan

I've swam with sharks, I've ran with the lions of Africa, I can jump 3 feet and 13 inches, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have lived in Washington my entire life. I love to play just about any sport, but my favorites are basketball and baseball! I love to laugh and make people laugh. I am currently serving a 2-year mission in the New Hampshire Manchester mission. Also, I can juggle.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a Mormon is sweet! I am also a Mormon because I know for a fact - through diligent scripture study and fervent prayer - that this church is true. I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and was called to restore Christ's church in its fulness. He restored truths that have long been forgotten or altered, including the worlds view of the Godhead - Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. We believe these three to be 3 distinct beings perfectly united in purpose and mission. This belief comes directly from the New Testament. Also, we believe in continuing revelation leading to an open scriptural canon. The Heavens are not closed, nor soon will they be. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and only by adhering to His Gospel, and only through His merits and mercy can we receive everlasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve as a full-time missionary. How I live my faith is quite simple: keeping the commandments and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is first having faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (faith that he lives and can do all that he says he can do). Second, repentance, or changing the way you think and act to act in accordance with God's will. Third, baptism, by immersion and with proper authority. Fourth, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. Fifth, enduring to the end, or keeping God's commandments and striving to do good until the end of your life. I try my best to keep all of God's commandments and to do all that He wants me to, but I fall short as does everyone, and that is why the Atonement of Jesus Christ is so important in all of our lives!
