Hi I'm Andy

I am an 18 year old missionary from South Jordan, Utah. I am serving a mission in Piura, Peru reporting on July 17th.

About Me

I am a recent high school graduate from Bingham High School. This last year I was a student body officer. I have been accepted to BYU Provo and will attend the semester after I return from my mission. I love playing American football, tennis, and basketball, but I am very excited to learn how to play Futbol on my mission in Piura, Peru. I took two years of High School level Spanish and one year of college level Spanish. I am very excited to serve the Lord for the next to years.

Why I am a Mormon

Through middle school, I had many trials and didn't know who I was. When there was nowhere else to turn, I turned to the Lord and He helped me find where I belong. Since then, I have never doubted the Church and have done all that I can to be a faithful servant of the Lord. I have an undeniable testimony that the Book of Mormon is true and that we have a prophet here on the earth today. I am a Mormon because this is where I belong and this is where all of God's children belong.

How I live my faith

I was the second counselor in the priest quorum and met many of my best friends through the Church. I played Church basketball with my ward and while I was 15, my team one the championship in our region. I was baptized at age 8 and read the Book of Mormon for my first time while I was 14, and I have a testimony that it is true. Every morning and night I say my prayers and read my scriptures. This helps me to become closer to Christ and feel His spirit. These past few years I have found a deep love in serving others. I know that the best way for me to be happy is to help others feel happy and try to lighten their burdens. By living what I have learned in the Gospel and reaching out to those around me, I have found true happiness.
