Hi I'm Elder Sheldon Richey

I was in Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp, I am a competitive sharpshooter, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hey, my favorite thing in the entire world is to swim. I've been swimming ever since I can remember. I am right now serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints over in Ogden, Utah. I will serve for 2 years and I will proselyte in the Spanish language. This is just a little about myself

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with the Church and never truly understood all that was taught. But one summer day before my Tenth grade year in High School I had the opportunity to go to a LDS Church Youth camp and we read Joseph Smith's testimony. As we read it the Spirit started to touch me and tell me (through warm comforting feelings) that this was all true and I shouldn't be confused. As time when on we watched Jeffery R. Hollands Testimony on the Book of Mormon and the Spirit was so powerful that I immediately knew that this Church was true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others through the Youth groups in the Church. I also would go hometeaching with my partner. At this time I'm doing more service by sharing the Gospel to those in Northern Utah and Southern Idaho
