Hi I'm Allan

I'm a dane, a big brother and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a darker skinned dane (dad from Denmark and mum from the Seychelle islands), who loves understanding how things work. As a young boy I (apparently) always used to look at things, examine them and then ask my dad how it worked - i.e. how water comes out of the tap. I'm studying medicine (doctor) at a university in Denmark and I really enjoy uncovering the mysteries of the complicated machine that the body truly is - a masterpiece of our Heavenly Father. Travelling is one of my "hobbies". I love experiencing the many different cultures in other countries and especially if those countries are warm so I can also enjoy the sun at the same time (I'm a huge fan of the sun!) :) Physical activity of any kind is definitely appreciated by me and I like being the "I'll take the stairs instead of the elevator" kind of guy.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's the only right thing to do. I've come to know my Heavenly Father through prayer and I know that he cares about us and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only place where the fulness of His gospel is. By actively living and following His teachings I will be guided to become the kind of person that He always meant for me to be. He can lift us way higher than we could by ourselves, both in this life and the next, so why should I not be a "Mormon"? ;) My time as a volunteer missionary for the church has helped me strengthen my understanding of the gospel and has taught me how to live it better. Among other things it has taught me to see people around me a bit more like our Heavenly Father sees them - seeing their potential rather than their current state. That has really changed the way I view people and how I interact with them. "Mormon" life truly is the sweet life :)

How I live my faith

I'm currently helping out at church as one of the leaders of the "young men" organisation. Its an organisation that helps young guys between ages 12 - 17 learn how to make the gospel of Jesus Christ an active part of their lives. Here I get a chance to influence "my boys" and show them that real men always strive towards improvement and always seek to make right choices even if it's not the most popular thing to do. And let's be completely honest here... Being the oldest of my siblings back home, I quite enjoy an excuse to go all big bro' style on "my boys", messing around with them :) Its pretty much my dream assignment at church (we call it a "calling")!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a record of things God has revealed to prophets in the ancient Americas, the same way as the Bible is a record of His revelation to His people in ancient Israel. God stills speaks to prophets today and only by following ALL that he has revealed to man and still reveals to man can we be on the path that leads back to Him :) Show more Show less
