Hi I'm Rasten

I love this Church. I love the gospel. I love everything about it. I am serving a full time mission in Chicago, Illinois.

About Me

My name is Rasten. I have wrestled since I could walk. I spent countless hours in the wrestling room and a gym. I always loved wrestling. I was a captain of the wresting team. I was a two time state champion and a 4 time varsity state placer. Wrestling was pretty much my childhood. If I wasn't wrestling I was playing football. I loved playing football on a Friday night with my best friends. I was also a captain of the football team. I loved both sports and almost all of my time was in them. I have grown up on a dairy farm so in between all of the sports I loved spending my days on the farm. I spent a lot of time at the family farm because I loved it. It has always been a dream of mine to own a farm. I also ride dirt bikes and snowmobiles. I love both of them. My family has a lot of jeeps and we love going to Moab and spending time down there.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that this is the only true church on the face of the earth. I have grown up in the church and had the opportunity to find out for myself that it is true. I know the Book of Mormon is true and have a testimony that what I believe in is true. I am so happy in my life and know it is because of the choices I have made to be a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church and being a good example. I have been in many leadership positions growing up. I attended and graduated seminary. I try to magnify my all my callings and do the best I can. I am serving the lord for two years as a full time mission in Chicago, Illinois. I strive daily to have the spirit in my life and find and bring those souls unto Christ. I love being a missionary. I learn new lessons everyday and I am growing so close to the gospel. This gospel is amazing and I know it is true. We are so blessed to have this wonderful gospel in are lives. God loves everyone!!
