Hi I'm Eric Vincent

im a mormon and im headed out on a mission

About Me

I am 22 and serving my mission in the Oregon Portland mission. I have been called there for two years to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. I started my mission with a small testimony and very little faith. For many years I was not active even thought I went every week. I was only there because mom and pop said I had to be to get the car, but mentally I was far from active and many actions I had were far from the standards of Christ and the way I acted was not Christ like. During this time I found myself getting angry constantly, I was extremely arrogant, and not easy to get along with. After certain events though that happened in my life, I realized the errors of my ways. so I started to do those simple things that I was taught as a child reading, praying, and paying attention in church. most importantly I started applying those things I learned in my life. Because I did this I have seen my life take a 180 turn. Instead of being happy just in a moment I am truly joyful constantly! Even though I still have my trials and tribulations, because I have an understanding of the gospel in its fullness and a close relationship with Christ he helps me through those challenges. Since I have been on my mission my testimony and my faith grown exponentially. I have seen more miracles than I can count brought forth because of this gospel in peoples lives. I know this church is true! and I know that it's Christ's church once again established here on the earth with a prophet and apostles

Why I am a Mormon

because it has the fullness of the gospel in my mind

How I live my faith

I do my very best to practice what I preach! I try to be an example of what a Christian should be not just in public, but when no one can see me. I try to live worthily of that constant companionship of the holy ghost so it can help lead and guide me in all aspects of my life. I try to love every one no matter what their color, race, social standing, or any circumstance may be. I don't force my religion upon anyone, but if any one has any questions Ill be more than happy to share.
