Hi I'm Arthur

Born in San Diego, keeping it real in the mitten state (MI). I'm a soon-to-be missionary in Paraguay. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Let's see, I am between attendance at Brigham Young University and service as an LDS Missionary in Paraguay. I would do almost anything for a Klondike bar, and I take great pride in my 3-point shot. I love camping and pretty much any sport. I don't really know what else I should say, so I will close with a quote a wise man once said: "Remember to forget, but never forget to remember." -Me

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised attending the LDS church regularly. That being said, I still had to come to a knowledge in the Lord and His Gospel. I cannot pinpoint the exact moment when I realized the church was true, but then again, most revelation doesn't work like that! I know that the Lord reveals His many mysteries incrementally. I am in no way finished with my growth in faith, but I feel comfortable enough to say that I know my Redeemer lives, and His plan is the only way we can return to live with God again. I love this Gospel, and I love the fellowship of this Church.

How I live my faith

I've recently(ish) transitioned from being a youth to an adult. When I was younger it was much simpler sharing the gospel, or at least being open about it, as I was always surrounded by my friends of the same faith. At the same time, though, it is easy to feel too safe and not share testimony at a place where almost everyone is LDS. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have served as both a home teacher and FHE group leader while at my first semester at BYU. Even on the toughest, busiest days, when i found the time to fulfill my responsibilities, I could see the real effects had on others. More than that, I found my own testimony strengthening. You have the power to influence others so long as you seek it.
