Hi I'm Ethan Gittins

I was born and raised in Utah. I want to be an Engineer. I am preparing to serve a Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently going to a community college in Salt Lake working towards an associates that I hope to transfer to the University of Utah and there work toward and engineering degree. I am also preparing to serve the Lord on a mission to the South Africa Cape Town Mission, I report on June 13 2013. I am very excited at this opportunity and am grateful for all the great opportunities I have been afforded because I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church and I have been taught and believed to a certain degree that this church was true but there came a point that I found that I didn't really believe. My life was not in line with what I claimed to believe as a Mormon and I had a choice to make. Either continue in separating myself from the church or turn to Christ. I did turn to Christ and truly felt a necessity to rely on him. I realized how much I needed him and over the past few years have grown close to my savior and truly have come to know that I need him. The best part is that I have also come to know that he is there for me. He has paid the ultimate price for me out of love for me. I am so grateful for him and for his sacrifice on my behalf. I have come to know that this is true through living it and feeling my Father in Heaven's love for me and seeing how he has blessed me. Everything that I am and all that I have has been given to me by a loving Heavenly Father. I have come to know of the truthfulness of the Book Of Mormon and know that it is the word of God because I have read it and felt the spirit testify of its truthfulness. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's true church on the Earth today and am so grateful for that knowledge and how it has strengthened me and made me who I am today.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by following the example of the Savior Jesus Christ by loving and serving those around me daily. I am preparing to be a full time Missionary and be like and ambassador of Christ to the people in South Africa and try to bring them unto Christ by teaching them what Mormon's believe and sharing Christ's love with them.
