Hi I'm Foster Abinadi Harvey

I'm on a mission in the New York Utica Mission. I love basketball, reading, and family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I enjoy sports. Especially basketball. I played Varsity ball all four years of high school. I recently graduated from High school and I am on a mission in the New York Utica Mission until September 17th, 2017. After my mission I will be attending BYU. I grew up in California, so the culture here in Utah was a bit of a shock to me at first. But I have grown to love it. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister. I am the oldest of the bunch. I also enjoy reading books and my favorite genre is fantasy. I love watching movies as well. I enjoy listening to music and my favorite bands are Twenty One Pilots, Awolnation, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Coldplay. I plan on studying sports medicine in college and hope to one day become an athletic trainer or a physical therapist. My favorite sports teams are the OKC Thunder, the Sacramento Kings, the Philadelphia Eagles, the San Diego Chargers, and the St Louis Cardinals

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. Most of my entire extended family are also members. Growing up in this environment has truly helped me to see and understand the blessings that this gospel can bring to people's lives. There has been plenty of struggle in my family but time and time again I have seen the Lord help us get through it. By staying faithful to the commandments of God my life has been so full of blessings and so fulfilling. There have been times in my life when I did not follow the commandments of God. Those were dark times in my life but I was able to get through them through the light of God. He has always been there for me through thick and thin and I owe that to this church. This church has given me and my family so many great blessings and brought us closer and closer over time. I love this gospel so very much

How I live my faith

I am on a mission for the Church in the New York Utica Mission. This is a 2 year commitment with limited contact with my family. It is difficult but it is very rewarding. I love this Gospel so much and I love sharing it with the people here. I plan on continuing to do missionary work even after my mission. I also enjoy discussing religion with people and helping see the joy that comes from Christ.
