Hi I'm Seth Bird

My name is Seth Bird. 20 years of age. I love Chinese.

About Me

I grew up in Tulsa Oklahoma! Music is a huge part of my life. I love to pole vault and I am obsessed with sport bikes and fast cars! Oldest of five boys.. Soon to be six. Right now I am serving a mission in Edmonton, Canada speaking Mandarin Chinese. After I complete my mission, I plan on living in Beijing for a year to teach English and continue studying Mandarin with a good friend of mine. When I return from China I will go to school in Utah. After that I hope to complete school with a Major in mandarin and a degree in international trading and business. 你好!我叫白长老!我中文的名字是白鹏。我从美国来的。我在 Edmonton, Canada 两年传教。我传教之后打算在北京工作。如果你会说中文你可以发email给我. 谢谢!!! seth.bird@myldsmail.net

Why I am a Mormon

Church was never a priority for me growing up. Because of that, I ended up going down some pretty crooked roads in high school and didn't have an interest in religion or to serve a mission. Last April I was in a motorcycle wreck on the highway that should have taken my life. A car speeding at 135 mph hit me from behind. Pinned me under the car from my head down and dragged me 250 yards at high speeds. Besides the scars I am so lucky to have a full recovery. The wreck whipped me onto the right path in life and made me realize what I need to be doing. My wreck is what SAVED my life. It has helped me know that trials are here for opportunities to learn and become better. No matter how far you push yourself away from God his hand is always out stretched and you can always grab a hold. I am a strong believer on anyone can change no matter the situation. God saved my life so serving two years is hardly anything to ask of me.

How I live my faith

I have made my fair share of mistakes and have learned that LIVING the faith of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has cleared up everything in my past and has opened the door for a better future. I am now living my faith by serving a full time mission for my church and striving to become a better person and missionary every day.
