Hi I'm Bladden

I'm the son of immigrant parents living in America. I love Spanish, Japanese, futbol, and video games. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My interests are Japanese culture, my Hispanic heritage, video games, football/soccer, and watching critically-acclaimed television shows and movies! I've already graduated from Brigham Young University and I recently decided to serve a mission to pay back all the wonderful things that the people from my church have done to aid me and for the Lord, who has blessed me with all the wonderful opportunities I have had so far in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was initially skeptical at first, having a headstrong mother that decided that we should join because she saw the church as a way to protect my sister and I from trouble in an impoverished neighborhood. Over the years, I warmed up to the church because of the wonderful example that the people in the church have been to me. They offered food, a job for my mother, and an opportunity for me to go to college. Most importantly, the people that I have met have shown me what it means to have true human character. I seek to become a person like them, so that I can be strong enough to help someone just like the others have done for me. I choose to follow His gospel because I know I can be better each day and it means a lot to me to do this.

How I live my faith

I help with some of the early preparations for church. I am also getting ready to preach the gospel in another country very soon.
