Hi I'm Erik

I grew up on a remote cattle ranch in Eastern Oregon. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy farming, fixing equipment, hunting, shooting sports, long drives around the country to see new places, learning about engines. I have rebuilt 3 diesel engines on my own and built my own truck.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have grown to understand my purpose here on earth. i was given a strong body and mind and a talent for thinking problems through. I know that Heavenly Father blessed me with these talents and abilities so that I can serve others. He uses me as a tool to help those that need his help. I am willing to increase my knowledge and talents in these areas so that I can better help those that need it.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving those that need help. I haul things, lift things, move people from place to place. I will help fix things for people and try to be aware of an individual's needs based on observation and listening.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Is a little child I was given opportunities to work and earn money on the ranch. These funds were put into an account for my future missionary service. I am now able to use these saved funds to pay my own way in the mission field for 24 months so that my family and ward members aren't burdened by my needs. Show more Show less
