Hi I'm Ellis Holt

I was born & raised in Salt Lake City, i'm a soon to be missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a freshman in college down in Provo, Utah. I love meeting new people, hanging out with my friends, and being with my family. I am a soon to be missionary in the Argentina Buenos Aires South Mission. I have not always wanted to serve a mission but I soon found out after coming down to school that a mission was my next step in life. I am so excited to be able to share who I am and what I believe with the beautiful people of Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a mormon family. My parents both grew up mormon and so that is what I have always known. I am so grateful for them and how they raised me but I have also found out on my own that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I have had many different experiences that have helped build my testimony of this gospel. I am a mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and Savior and I want to make it back to them some day. They are in every detail of my life and with out them I would be so lost. I know that the Book Of Mormon is true. I have read it and found out for myself of its power and realness. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the earth and that we have a living prophet on the earth today who leads and guides our church in truthfulness. Something that I have always known for a surety is that we are all loved unconditionally by our Heavenly Father and Savior. There isn't anything they wouldn't do for us. I will forever be grateful for the Saviors Atonement so that I can be forgiven of my sins and live with the Father again some day. I strive to share the gospel in all that I do so that when others see me they also see the Savior and His light.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every week, serving others, and trying to be a good example. I share my beliefs with all those I come in contact with if its through work, school, social media, or even just talking with friends. I love talking about this gospel because it has brought me so much joy and happiness in my life. I decided to go on a mission because I have been blessed with so much and I want to share those blessings and the joyfulness of this gospel with those who don't know of it yet.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Ellis Holt
My family is everything to me. I love my family with all my heart and that is why I love this gospel so much because through Jesus Christ and through His gospel we are able to be with our families forever. Not just in this life but also in the life to come. The gospel is centered around families because family I think, is the most important thing. Show more Show less
