Hi I'm Nathan Wanlass

I'm a missionary, a dancer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some of my favorite things to do include writing, drawing, and ballroom dancing. I enjoy being creative and expressive. I am the oldest of four kids in my family, two of whom have high functioning autism. I'm currently serving as a missionary for the church in the Canada Halifax Mission. After my mission, I'm going to school for animation.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always loved the church and known that it is true. However, two years ago I was going through a rough patch in my life. I wasn't as interested in church, and I wasn't making the best choices. Last year, I felt really alone and worried for my future. In one of the darkest times in my life, Christ was there for me. I had a change of heart, and could feel his love for me. I knew that I needed to change. I was healed by Christ's atonement, and became better because I had faith and hope in him. Without the Savior in my life, I would be an entirely different person.

How I live my faith

Currently I'm serving as a missionary in the Canada Halifax Mission. I've grown a lot from the lessons I've learned. I've learned to rely on Jesus Christ and his Atonement as I go out to spread the gospel with other people.
