Hi I'm Micah Gelter

I was born in St. George, Utah, and raised in Kaysville, Utah, USA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from Desert Hills High School Class of 2014. I love being outdoors. I love riding motorcycles, fishing, shooting firearms, camping, and playing just about any sport. I am the youngest of five siblings, two older brothers, three older sisters. I am an uncle to seven nieces and two nephews. I love my family more than anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My parents and all my siblings were and continue to be faithful members of this church. I was baptized at age eight. Both of my older brothers served full time missions, one in Leipzig, Germany, and the other in Mexico City, Mexico. I have a huge testimony in the power of the priesthood. I have grown up with a father being able to give me priesthood blessings if I am sick or need comfort. I aim to be worthy to be a priesthood holder when I someday have a family of my own.

How I live my faith

I have held leadership positions in different priesthood offices. I am currently serving a full-time mission in the Ghana Accra Mission. I entered the missionary training center in Accra, Ghana on July 24th and I love the people in Ghana.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Micah Gelter
As stated in Matthew 16:19, the authority needed for baptism is what allows something to be "bound on earth" as well as "bound in heaven". Simply, without the correct authority, baptism is simply for the world to see, but not recorded in heaven. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Micah Gelter
“All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth... and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator” (Book of Mormon, Alma 30:44). Show more Show less
