Hi I'm Nathan

My name is Nathan. I grew up in Columbus Ohio. I love playing sports, mostly basketball.

About Me

I love playing sports. I grew up playing basketball and I love to play football. I have three other brothers in which I am the oldest. I am currently serving a mission in Alabama and I am waiting for my visa to serve a mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all of my life. I remember going to church each week and learning new things. As a young boy I leaned on my parents faith and their testimony. I always remember my teachers talking to us about reading the scriptures and feeling the holy ghost. But I really didnt have that holy ghost testify to me that this church was true. Until I was about 16, I decided to do a mini-mission. In this mini-mission , I was able to go with the full time missionaries and see what they did each day. I remember teaching the people and seeing their faith grow. I testified to an man about the church, Joseph Smith and Christ. I felt the spirit so strong and from then on I knew the church was true. Through many other experiences my faith has strengthened and I have come closer to Heavenly Father. I am so glad I experienced the mini-mission and because of it I decided to serve a full time mission. I am now in the Alabama mission waiting for my Visa to serve in the Brazil Sao Paulo North Mission!

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I am able to serve in many ways. I was able to be the leader when I was a young man, leading othe boys like me. Once I turned 18 I served as a teacher for the 8 year old children. They taught me so much and they knew so much about the gospel. I also served as a home teacher, which visits familes in their area. I did many service projects and helped my community through the church.
