Hi I'm Brandon Crichton

I love to play basketball and volleyball, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of four children, and the oldest grandchild on both my mum and dad's side. I am currently serving in the Philippines San Pablo Mission, and I reported to the Philippines MTC on the 21st of November 2014. I love to play basketball and volleyball, and have also played rugby and soccer for my school. I'm of Samoan, Singaporean and English descent. My pre-mission hobbies were dancing and singing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because there have been many experiences I have had that have confirmed to me that this is the Church of Jesus Christ. I definitely know that the Atonement that Christ went through in the Garden of Gethsemane is real, and I feel its power every day as I repent continually. I try my best every day to follow God's commandments, but where I fall short, Christ's Atonement makes up for it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a walking example. Being friendly and encouraging to everyone I meet, as well as keeping activities wholesome and enjoyable. I also am living my faith right now by serving our Heavenly Father and the people of the Philippines for two years. Whenever I can, I try to help others, and do not help others to boost my credibility, but rather to make their burdens lighter.
