Hi I'm Elder Affleck

I grew up in southern California. I love to play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing soccer, and hanging out with my family. I am the oldest of six children, the youngest being two. Three boys and three girls, we love have fun with each other and with our awesome parents. I am currently attending BYU, so family time is pretty much limited to FaceTime, which though nice, is still hard for me to be away from the.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel closer to God when I abide by this church's teachings. The Gospel is from the Savior, and this is His church here on the earth today. The authority of God is in this church, and I can feel God's Spirit close to me as I am obedient to His commandments. The Book of Mormon is the Word of God, Another Testament of Jesus Christ, and when I read and study it I feel the Spirit. I know the Book of Mormon is true, because I have read and prayed about it for myself, and the Spirit has testified of these things to me. I love this Gospel and this church, and I know that it is the true church and Gospel upon the earth today.

How I live my faith

I love to serve and be a part of this Gospel. It has blessed my life in so my life in so many ways, I can't even tell you. I love to teach others about the Gospel when they have questions.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Elder Affleck
The Atonement has blessed my life in numerous ways, helping me to become clean again after I have made mistakes. I know that without the Atonement of the Savior Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, I would not be able to return to Him and my Heavenly Father again after this life. Show more Show less
