Hi I'm Brandon Erickson

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a very outgoing person.I love to be outdoors and enjoy playing any kind of sport. I played on my high schools football team for 3 years. I am also a very dedicated student. While attending high school I worked towards achieving my associates degree, which I achieved the same year I graduated from high school. I will continue my education by going to college after I have served my mission in Mongolia.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all my life. Both of my parents were LDS so I have always been around this church. I do not attend this church just because my parents do. I attend it because I know that this is the only true church. The Book of Mormon is the keystone of this religion. The only way you can know for yourself if this church is true is by reading the Book of Mormon. This book proves everything in this church is true. It proves that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he restored the true church and its gospel. I have read the entire Book of Mormon and I have prayed to my father in heaven with the question, "is this really true." To this day I know that this book is the word of God. I know it to be true and I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and he restored the gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of this, I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church. My testimony is the reason I attend His church. Without it I probably would not attend. Therefore I testify that this is the only true church and the Book of Mormon is the reason I know it to be true.

How I live my faith

I love giving service to others when ever I can. I help people in anyway I can. I've done it by helping someone move out of or in to a home to raking up someones leaves. I also live my faith by participating in church meetings. I have blessed, prepared, and ministered the sacrament during church and also after church when taking it to someones house because they were unable to come because of health. I have also showed my faith by sharing the gospel to others whether it be through home teaching or talking to someone on the street or in school. I always invite others to Christ. I will now show my faith by serving a mission in Mongolia for two years.
