Hi I'm Samuel Lang

I grew up in Westlake Village California. I love sports and the outdoors. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am one of five children. I love my family and spending time with them. I like the outdoors and enjoy backpacking. I will be attending Brigham Young University in the fall of 2016 after I return from a two year church mission in Guayaquil Ecuador North Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, because it gives me hope. The hope for a life after death and the hope that one day I will be re-united with my family in heaven. I am a Mormon because of the changes in peoples lives I've seen. I know Joseph Smith saw what he said he saw and I know that he wouldn't have died for a lie. I am grateful for God's plan of Happiness and that he is aware of me. Also, I am grateful for his son Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for me. I love this gospel dearly and all it has done for me. I share this testimony that He lives and that Christ has restored his church back on the Earth today and he has Prophets and Apostles to guide and direct us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith for me. I do it so weak things can become strong. I live my faith for my parents and to make them proud. I live my faith so others can see my light. I live my faith to show God I love him. I live this way in the way I treat other people. I try to serve constantly by visiting the sick and strengthening the weak. By being an example to others so they might stand with me.
