Hi I'm Joshua Fraser

I am serving a full time mission, it is the greatest thing! I grew up in Utah farm country. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am serving a full time mission and it is great! I love to feel the Spirit and love this Gospel! I have four people in my family. I love my family they are such a blessing in my life. I am serving my mission because I love the Lord and want to serve him and I want to help others and their families be together forever. I want them to know what I know and have the blessings we have! I want them to be as happy as we are with our lives and I want them to know that through repentance, faith, the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end they can be with their loved ones for ever and live with God again. I love to be in the outdoors. I love to hunt, fish, trap, and to train animals like dogs and horses. I also like any kind of sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe this is the only true church. That through the atonement of Jesus Christ we can all be saved and have the opportunity to get to return to our Heavenly Father. The Atonement that Christ preformed for us is such an amazing thing for us, to have it gives us the ability to repent for our sins every day if we have to which I do. I had a hard time in my life when my parents got divorced and I fell away from the church and I did some bad things because I thought they would make me happy but they only made things worse. I started going down a bad path. Things just got worse and worse but one day I fell to my knees and prayed for help and for forgiveness and I didn't receive my answer immediately, but that was to help me remember the felling. A couple weeks later I received a answer and it was the church. When I started going back my life changed for the better through the church and the love of the people in it. I believe That There is still a living prophet that has been called by Heavenly Father to guide us through these latter days. I believe that Thomas S. Monson is that prophet. I believe that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon and was also a true prophet. I know that Heavenly Father is always here for us. I Feel his love and help through the Holy Ghost. I also Have a strong testimony of the Spirit. It has helped me through lots of hard decisions and has guided me to help others. This gospel has blessed my life in so many ways and I know these things to be true in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the things that the Lord has commanded us. I know that as we work to gain Christ like attributes and come closer to God that we will change. This change is not a bad thing, as we change we are also learning. We are learning what God wants us to be and as we are change we become more like Christ. It is not just a physical change, it is a change of your heart. We need this change of heart because the natural man is an enemy of God and we have to work to be able to control our natural man. This goes back to keeping the commandments which the Lord has given us through Prophets. These commandments are to help us be happy and to help us to learn how to control those urges of the natural man which is in all of us. One of my favorite was to not turn to the natural man is to do service for our everyone we can. The natural man wants to turn inward, it wants to turn to self. What I like to do when I see that happen with me is to do the opposite, do the Christ like thing which is to turn outward and love and do service. It makes me feel so much better. "Turn outward when the natural man inside says turn inward" "When God brings you to it, he will bring you through it".
