Hi I'm Brendan

I was born in Texas. I have travelled all over the world and now I live on the beautiful island of Guam. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated high school this past year and have made the decision to go on a mission and serve the Lord. I was born in the United States, however, my dads work has given my family the privilege of traveling and experiencing many different cultures. I have lived overseas nearly my whole life and have visited several countries in Europe, Asia and in the Pacific. I love traveling and seeing the world. I love hiking, reading, exercising, and serving others. I plan to go to college after my mission and hopefully have a family one day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to be the only true church on the face of the earth. I have a burning testimony of the Book of Mormon and know it to be the true word of God. I know that the doctrines were written for the benefit of all mankind, and that through the teachings of the ancient prophets, like in the Bible, we may know that Jesus is the Christ. I know that Jesus suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and died on the cross for us so that we could live with our father in heaven again. Being in this Church gives me a sense of belonging, that I'm not alone in this world and that through the gospel of Jesus Christ, people can be united regardless of race or what country they may come from.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by providing an example for others to follow. I take pride in serving others and know that true happiness can come from meaningful service. In The Book of Mormon, specifically in the book of Mosiah, it says in chapter 2 verse 17 " And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." I live my faith by remembering that Jesus Christ died and suffered for all of our sins so that we could live with our heavenly father again. I love my father in heaven and take pride in spreading his gospel. I will be serving in the Australia Sydney North mission.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We do not worship Joseph Smith, however, we believe him to be a prophet of God. We believe that through him, the true gospel of Christ was restored. Show more Show less
