Hi I'm Ephraim Schulte

I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah; I love sports; I love candy; I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I'm serving in the Alabama Birmingham Mission, Spanish speaking. I love to play all types of sports, especially football, baseball, and wrestling. I'm the middle of seven children. I love music as well. I'm happy as long as I'm having fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up surrounded by the LDS faith. I have a father and a mother who are both very faithful members in the church and both serve faithfully in their callings, so I have grown up always believing it is true. When I was in my early teen years I began to experience a growth in my testimony where I starting realizing the truth of this religion for myself. There were multiple experiences I had which strengthened my testimony. Some of which were bearing testimony to friends that it was true. Some were caused by having three older siblings all serve missions and share their testimony with me. A lot of my testimony came from reading and studying the scriptures. But at this time in my life I can truly say I am a Mormon because I chose to be a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Birmingham, Alabama speaking Spanish! Before my mission I lived my day to day life in a manner that I hope people would recognize something different than others. I share the Gospel with my friends when I get the opportunity and I love reading the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon.

What is faith?

Ephraim Schulte
Faith is believing or hoping for something that you haven't seen or experienced yourself, but is true. Quite simply, faith is confidence in something or someone and their abilities or existence. You can have faith in many things, but faith in God is to believe He is there. To believe He will help us. To believe He loves us. Faith in God is so essential to developing your own testimony and creating a better relationship with God! Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Ephraim Schulte
God has never lied and never will lie. In the world we live in, among many lies and confusion, we can have complete confidence in our Father in Heaven to guide us to do that which is right. If you sincerely pray to Heavenly Father to know that Mormonism is true, you will receive an answer for yourself! Show more Show less
