Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a furniture salesman, was among the Top 500 USA/Can League of Legends players, now among the Lord's servants as a missionary.

About Me

I have grown up in a Mormon family in a non-Mormon area of the world. I graduated from high school and junior college this past spring. I worked as a furniture salesman to save money for my mission to Costa Rica, my sister is serving a mission in the Alps region of Europe right now, my brother served in Brazil and now works at the Missionary Training Center, and my little sister plans on a mission. I have climbed Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, and kayaked over 50 miles of the Columbia River as well as in the San Juans. I love hiking, learning, history, BYU, and most of all I love this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I think that people often get "Why I am a Mormon" mixed up with "How I became a Mormon." How I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was because my parents are members and so I always went to church with them as a kid. Mandatory. Why I am a Mormon is because I have, through repeated exercising of faith, gained an undeniable testimony of the truths contained in the Book of Mormon along with a knowledge that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the church on the Earth with a true prophet of God leading it. You can come to know this as well by pondering and praying with real faith and honest intent.

How I live my faith

I gave up my video gaming and put my future schooling on hold to help other people. For many gaming is a pastime but for me it became more -- I was ranked 496 out of over eight million people throughout North America at a game which, had I gone professional, could easily have given me a 6-digit annual salary. I do not regret this decision in any way, for it is a small price to pay. I love to help people and have found true joy in serving in our Church. I have visited several elderly people every week to allow them to participate in our church Sacrament for the past two years, and there is something so special about that service that I would never find in the fame, or success, of the world.
