Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a runner. I'm a student. I'm a gourmet root beer salesman. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am from the Northwest. I love the rain, storms, and cloudy skies. I love to hike, camp, and run. I love spending time with my family and friends. I am a root beer connoisseur. I love folk and acoustic music and I am learning to play guitar.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because this faith brings me so much happiness and I feel closest to God when I live this way. It brings a joy that is so filling and tangible. This faith gives me purpose in this life and answers the questions of the soul like where do I come from? why am I here? and where are we going? While the world's standards shift, I know that I can be safe and right with God when I live the way I know God wants me to. I love being mormon!

How I live my faith

Currently I am on a church service mission preaching the gospel and helping others come unto Christ. I was called to serve in California Arcadia and speak spanish. I live my faith by trying everyday to be more like Christ and serve others. I read in the Book of Mormon and the Bible and I pray everyday to help me receive guidance from God.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Spencer
I would say that there are many reasons why a person decides to serve a mission. I think the underlying reason however is the fact that this church is God's true and only church on the earth. And it is only through it that a person can find never ending joy and peace in this life and in the life to come. I believe that those that decide to serve missions recognize that Jesus Christ has given them so much. He has already sacrificed for our sorrows and our sins. We can accept His sacrifice and have this fullness of joy by making covenants or promises with Him like baptism by His authority. Truly converted people to the gospel of Jesus Christ realize what they have. How can we not share what has brought us so much joy, hope, and happiness? This is what life is about. Being happy and having joy. That is why missionaries serve missions to help others come unto Christ so they too can feel of this filling and never ending joy. Show more Show less
