Hi I'm Nic Ferguson

I grew up in Hood River, Oregon. I'm a sports fanatic, loving husband, and a big brother. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently attending dental school. I graduated from college with a B.S. in Microbiology. I love playing sports, anything from golf to baseball to basketball. Running with my wife is also one of my favorite things to do. I love the outdoors.I enjoy camping, hiking, and fishing. A friend taught me how to fly-fish and I love doing that in my spare time. I recently have been learning how to tie flies. I also speak Mandarin Chinese and love to use it whenever I can.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was sixteen years old I decided to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it was true. I remember putting Moroni's promise to the test. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I remember one night praying and asking Heavenly Father if this book was true and if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was really his church. That night, after I was done praying I remember having an overwhelming peaceful feeling come over me. I knew at that moment that the Book of Mormon was true. I committed myself then and try to recommit every day to following Christ's gospel. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith translated it. I know that through Joseph Smith, that Christ's original church that He established was restored to the earth.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a ward missionary in my ward. I love the opportunity I have to talk to people about our church and to help the missionaries whenever I can. I have the opportunity to meet a lot of new people at church and it really feels like a family.
