Hi I'm Gareth Applegate

I live in Illinois, and currently get to serve a mission in Virginia.

About Me

I live in a small town and a small branch, but was born in Utah and lived there for twelve years. I spent a semester at BYU, and now have finalized my papers to leave on a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have studied the doctrine of the LDS church and believe it to be the doctrine that Christ would want to be taught. The Church is admittedly imperfect, and there are some traditions that i believe come from man, but i always ask myself if a loving god would teach what i am thinking about or if god would be a loving god without it. When i think about aspects of LDS teachings, the answer is yes.

How I live my faith

I help a lot with the youth groups that do activities throughout the week, and help in Sunday school classes during Sundays.
