Hi I'm Calvin

I'm a missionary serving in Denver Colorado

About Me

I recently finished my freshman year at Brigham Young University-Idaho, where I studied mechanical engineering. I am currently serving my 2-year mission in beautiful western Colorado.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is the only church with God's restored power (the priesthood) and the fullness of the gospel of Christ. While I did grow up in the church and don't have a whole lot of experience with much else, I have been able to talk to friends and acquaintances of other faiths, and nothing I've heard feels as right as belonging to this church.

How I live my faith

I try my best to do all I've been commanded to. I know this Gospel is the truth, and that is why I am focused on serving my mission well.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was a historical record of the people of the Americas. The first, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem, but was commanded by God to leave, taking only his family and necessities, eventually inhabiting the Americas, all while keeping a record of this. The record was kept on brass plates which were handed down from prophet to prophet. One of the last was named Mormon. The Book of Mormon is named after him because he compiled all of he previous writings into one book. The last to write in them was Moroni, who was commanded to bury the plates around 421 AD.
