Hi I'm Erik Yeates

I grew up in Utah I am a cowboy of faith and an eagle scout and I'm proud to be a Mormon

About Me

I am a country boy from Utah and love the outdoors I love camping hiking biking and backpacking.i love rodeos and riding horses and hunting.I did FFA in highschool and loved it and i will be atteding utah state for Agricultural education. when im out on my farm and with my animals i think of god and how he has given me so much. I am the oldest of six boys one dog and five chickens and being a Mormon is one hobby I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found out for my self that it is the right thing for me to do. Being a Mormon means to me to be a part of Jesus Christ's church that is on the earth today. Being a Mormon has helped me in all parts of my life, it has helped me through school and it has brought me peace and comfort in times of need like when I had major surgery. so two or so yrs ago i had to have open heart surgurey i was 15 at the time and it was kind of scary but i found peace in our Savior Jesus Christ the peace came from the words of john 14:27 peace I leave with you my peace i give unto you not as the world givith give i unto you let not your heart be troubled nor afarid and this scripture gave me so much peace and then i had pristhood blessings and my sugery was supposed to be 5 hrs it only took 4 because i knew God had sent my gardian angels to help with the sugery thats why i love being a mormon because i know that with the full gospel of Jesus Christ we can do any thing and recive the kingdom of heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to my church and serving others. The calling I did for my church is, I taught the children from ages 8-9 yrs. of age but the biggest thing I do to live my faith in Christ is the service I do for others. i am now on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints i am serving in the Texas Houston east mission

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Erik Yeates
the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints send missionaries out proselyteing because Jesus Christ gave us the comandment to go ye therefore and teach all nations as we strive to live and keep his commandments we send out missionaries thats why we proselyte. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Erik Yeates
so when christ was on they earth he set up his church let us use a glass table to repersent his church and this glass table had 12 legs each one repersents an apostle like peter james and john and jesus gave athority to the church leaders like peter james and john to teach and preach and peform saving ordanices like batisim and after jesus christ died on the cross he rose after the third day and he told peter james and john and the other 12 that they would be foresaken for his name sake so because of wicked men using their gift of agency or choice they started to kill of the apostle or take away one by one each leg of that glass table and after the last of them were killed or died the athourity was taken because god saw that they were bing very wicked and the glass table with no legs fell and shaterd into a bunch of pecies and after a time truth seeking men found this broken glass table that once had been the church of christ and took pecies of it and made their own churches thats why we have so many churches but as peter had proficied their had to be a restitution of all things before the second comeing so in the year 1820 when a 14 yr old boy named joseph smith wanted to know what church was right and witch to join diced to do as james directs in "james 1:5 if any of you lack wisdom let him ask of god who gives to all men liberaaly and upbradith not and it shall begiven him" that was the moment that started the restatution of all things as peter had proficied Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Erik Yeates
well this scripture in the book of mormon sums the question up its amlma ch30:44 pg 283 "but alma said unto him thou hast had signs enough will ye tempt your god will ye say show unto me a sign when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethern and also all the holy prophets the scriptures are laid befor thee yea and all thing denote there is a god yea even the earth and all things that are upon the face of it yea its motion yea and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witiness that there is a supreme creator." so that is why i know that their is a god because it just all fits together and no matter what people say thier is always going to be god and he loves us.
