Hi I'm Elder Buchanan

I am serving a mission in Bolivia!!!

About Me

I come from a family of 6 kids, all of which are Mormon. I am the 3rd child and have 2 older brothers who have served Mormon missions. I am currently serving a mission in southern Bolivia. Things I enjoy doing are teaching the gospel as well as watching and playing sports. My favorites are baseball, soccer, and football. I graduated in the top 10 from my high school. I enjoyed one fall semester at Mountain View Community College in Dallas close to home.

Why I am a Mormon

Since both of my parents are Mormon I was born into the church. But this does not mean that I am forced to be a Mormon. Growing up I was raised in the church and baptized. During my teenage years I started to rebel a little and it wasn't till I was on the verge of leaving home when I realized and came to know why I am a Mormon. I read the book or Mormon from cover to cover for the first time by myself at the age of 19. Through prayer and constant pondering I received a witness of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. More importantly the reason I am Mormon is for the power of the atonement and repentance. Without proper repentance we would never be able to be with our heavenly father again. Finally I am Mormon for the power of the priesthood. When properly used and held there is nothing that we cant do through God's power and will. I say this in Jesus name amen.

How I live my faith

By sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ as a full time missionary in Bolivia!!
