Hi I'm Elijah

I'm from Everett, Washington. I love life. I'm serving as a missionary in the Culiacan, Mexico mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college kid at Brigham Young University. I love the outdoors; hiking, backpacking, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and kayaking are all things I love! In high school I played football, lacrosse and soccer. I also enjoy playing the guitar and spending time with my family. I love my family!

Why I am a Mormon

My whole family is Mormon so I've always been a member. Sometimes my friends ask me why I still go to this church? Is it my choice or do I just go because of my parents? Do I really believe in the Mormon religion? My answer to them is yes, it is my choice, my parents have never forced me. I do believe in this religion and I continue to go because I know it is the right thing to do! Throughout my life I have been so blessed because of my religion. I know that God loves me and I know that he loves all of his children here on earth. I know that Jesus Christ died for me and that through him I can be forgiven of my mistakes and sins. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and was translated by Joseph Smith. I know that by reading it, you can become closer to God and Jesus Christ. I invite everyone to read it and to pray about it to find out for themselves if it is true. I testify of the power of prayer. I know that God listens to my prayers and comforts me when I need it and answers me when I have questions. All these things I know to be true and this is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Right now I get to live my faith as a full-time missionary! I get to offer two years of my life to go and serve the people in Culiacan, Mexico. As a missionary I get teach others about our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ and their love for us. I couldn't be more excited to serve as a missionary!!
