Hi I'm Elder Zachary Knudson

I'm a missionary from Maryland, serving in Idaho Falls and speaking English and Spanish! I'm so excited to serve in Idaho!

About Me

I have lived in Maryland my entire life. I love to play trombone. Now I'm in Idaho serving the Lord! It is an amazing opportunity. I am growing so much and I love the people in Idaho!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon first and foremost by choice. My parents have been members all there lives and have raised all five of their children in the church. I really gained my own testimony when I went to Palmyra, New York. I went to the Sacred Grove, where Joseph Smith saw the first vision, and felt the spirit, it was so much stronger than I have felt anywhere before, besides in the temple, and I prayed on one of the benches that are positioned throughout the grove to know if the Church was true. I got my answer and would like to share it with you. I know that Christ is risen. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in person and that he is a prophet in our dispensation. I know that he did translate the Book of Mormon and that the record enclosed is 100% true. I am a witness to the power of the priesthood and know that it's power and authority has returned again to the Earth in our day. I know we have a modern day prophet today, his name is Thomas S. Monson and I know that he receives revelation from God for his people. This church is my life. This church is my foundation and what I pattern my life after. I wake up at 5:00 in the morning to go to church and hear the words of the prophets in scriptures. People always ask me why I do what I do and I always respond "Because I know that what I do is best for me in the eyes of the world and in the eyes of God." This church is true. I say these thing' in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
