Hi I'm Russell

I'm headed to New Zealand for a 2 year mission, because I love Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently living in Utah, but not for long. I have been called on a mission to New Zealand. I was attending college and I plan to pick up where I left off when I return in two years. I love to ride dirt bikes, rock climb, and other outdoor activities. I love my Family and will be with them forever.

Why I am a Mormon

We all have gone through tough times throughout this life, but through Jesus Christ and his atonement we all can receive a feeling of assured hope that everything will be okay. The more I learn about Christ's gospel, through attending church and personal study, the more I receive this calming feeling of hope. I also get help from other members with advice to help me through these trials.

How I live my faith

I strive to be an example to the youth in my neighborhood, by fulfilling my duties as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. I am an assistant leader/teacher to the youth. Not only do we learn more of Christ, we also learn skills and activities that will help us through life.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Reading and studying these books can give us guidance, or answers to the hard times in life. At times our personal trials become so overwhelming and tough that we need all the help we can get, to get through it. I know this because I have personally experienced it. My life has not been easy but with the power of scriptures I have had divine help through it. Show more Show less
