Hi I'm Sam

"I grew up in albuquerque. I am starting senior year. I'm a Mormon"

About Me

I am a Student at BYUI. I had a call to Brazil and got changed to Reno, Nevada. I came home early and worked as an electrition and then a file clerk and a Lawfirm. I was called to be a Temple worker and loved working there. I am now at school and working to find a degree. In High school I played football,basketball and track! I am an Eagle scout and I worked as a lifeguard and a basketball coach! During my junior year of high school I went to an outdoor adventure school for 7-8 weeks called Anasazi! It has been a great blessing and has taught me to be strong and be a great person. I have been to a semester of collage at BYUI. I will be leaving for two year to serve a Fulltime mission in Brazil, Sao Paulo North. I am very Excited and I am ready to help others to learn of the gospel and learn the truth.

Why I am a Mormon

during freshman through junior year i decided myself what i believed and what my testimony was. It was a difficult time for me but i came to the understanding and feelings that this is what i needed in my life. i make it a goal that i will go to church every sunday that i am available to because i want too and not because i have too. I find joy and happiness when i am there learning and seeing good people there gaining their own testimony as well.I hope to serve a mission wherever the Lord prompts the prophet to send me to share the gosple with others who need the gosple in their lives.

How I live my faith

As a Priest I have served as a first and second assistant in the priests quorum. I help bless the sacrament and lead some meetings when i am asked too. I have created friendships with those in my ward. I attend missionary prep and have been preparing to serve a fulltime mission in Brazil. I have been ordained an Elder by my father. I have served in Reno, Nevada on my mission. I have also been a Temple worker at the Albuquerque Temple

What do Mormons believe about family?

I believe mormons beliefs on family are that at the right age a Man and a Woman shall be sealed in the temple and start a family where they teach, love and nurture their children in the gospel. the children are also sealed to their parents in the temple as well. The reason for being sealed to each other in the temple is that they will be together Forever and not till death do us part. Through the prophet Joseph Smith Jesus Christ gave him revelation that we may be together forever and death won't keep us apart. Show more Show less
