Hi I'm Richard O Anderson

I am from Riverton, Utah. I enjoy spending time with my family. Serving In Tonga Nuku'alofa for the LDS church. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the second out of 4 kids in my family. I enjoy water skiing, knee-boarding, and wake-boarding and going on family vacations. I went to Riverton High School and graduated in 2014. I really enjoy soccer and just about every other sport. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Tonga Nuku'alofa

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I have grown up in it and have come to know for myself that this is the truest church on earth. I know that Joseph Smith was called from God to reorganize the church back on earth in this dispensation. I know that we have prophets called from God to lead us in these latter-days. I know this church is true and that through the atonement of Jesus Christ we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. I know that our families can be together forever for time and all eternity if we follow the teaching of Christ. I say these thing in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I participate in my community by helping those in need. I am very active in my church and am serving a mission for it.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Richard O Anderson
The Book of Mormon is ANOTHER WITNESS OF JESUS CHRIST, it is a record of an ancient American civilization and how they came to be. It shows what happens when we follow Heavenly Fathers commandments what happens when we don't. It tells of the time when Jesus Christ came to the people in the land and taught them His gospel. Which is: Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism, Revive the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Endure to the End. It teaches us if we follow these five steps then we will receive eternal life and live with our Heavenly Father again. It shows that God continued to call prophets among his people. and the Book of Mormon is a collection of their teachings to their people. The Book of Mormon ends with the Promise that if you will read it and then pray to Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ and ask if the book is true then you can know for yourself that it is a true book.
