Hi I'm Elder Sullivan

I was born in Salt Lake City Utah and raised in Northern Utah. I'm a full time missionary in the California Los Angeles Mission.

About Me

I am twenty years old and I'm serving a mission. I love people and really enjoying socializing and helping others. I play the trumpet, piano, and also can sing. I like to party, read my scriptures, spend time with family and friends, and I am a history buff. I did go to college and performed with Marching Band at the University of Utah. As a missionary I have served in several areas in Los Angles. The first being in Lynwood, then Hawthorne, Inglewood, and now Westchester. I love being a full time missionary and seeing people change their lives with the Lord at their side. It is truly amazing. God is real and he does love us and knows us all.

Why I am a Mormon

I can tell you why I am a member of this Church using this scripture. It is from the Book of Mormon in 1 Nephi chapter seventeen verse thirteen and it reads "I will...be your light in the wilderness; and I will prepare the way before you, if it so be that ya shall keep my commandments; wherefore, inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall be led towards the promised land; and ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led."

How I live my faith

I live my faith through prayer, scripture reading, attending all my church meetings, serving, and finding people to reach out and help them come unto Christ. Also, I try hard to do my best in all that I do and recognize that I do mess up at times and repent and do my best to live better.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Elder Sullivan
Yes we do. It is the word of God written by prophets of old as they were moved upon by the influence of the Spirit of God. Joesph Smith said in the articles of faith of our church "We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly." The Book of Mormon and The Holy Bible go hand in hand in testimony that Jesus is the Christ. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Elder Sullivan
It is the supreme act of love the Savior did to save us from our sins if we choose to repent and follow him. Show more Show less
