Hi I'm Sean

I'm from Southern California. I'm a college student and about to serve a mission to Moscow, Russia.

About Me

I'm currently a college student at BYU and majoring in Electrical Engineering, but I will most likely change my major after I return from serving a two year mission to Moscow, Russia. In high school, I participated in marching band, Science Olympiad, speech and debate, peer counseling, and worked at Kumon Learning Center. I am also an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true because I have felt God's power in my life. When I have slipped up and made mistakes, I have felt Him there, lifting me up and feeling His forgiveness for my sins. I know that He is our Father and that His gospel is shared on the earth by the teachings of the LDS church. I have felt the truth of the words contained in the Bible and the Book of Mormon and I hope that everyone can have that same confirmation of the truth that I had.

How I live my faith

I've spent time in church helping others to learn how to find more about their genealogy and to find stories about their ancestors. I have also helped organize food drives and helped organize other various service projects. I have gone to people's houses (and apartments in college) to give lessons based off of church topic and to help them out when they need any sort of help. I am currently training to serve the people of Moscow, Russia by helping them to feel the Holy Spirit testify to them and help them to come closer to Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Definitely not. I know that there have been many church-sponsored service projects that I have participated in in which the primary benefactors were not Mormon. I helped people around my area clean up after the Southern California fires in 2007 and I know that almost everyone that I helped out with was not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Show more Show less
