Hi I'm Lance

18. Iowa Des Moines Mission. Indie Rock. Anesthesiology.

About Me

Well, at the moment I'm serving in the Iowa Des Moines Mission and it's pretty rad! I love being able to share the gospel and seeing lives change! I enjoy indie rock with all of my soul and love to play the piano and ukulele. Life is pretty grand. Studying Public Health and planning on going into Anesthesiology.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love it! I love being able to have the knowledge of my Savior and His Atonement. I know that Christ loved us enough to atone for our sins and to suffer for all of the things that we go through in this life. I love the knowledge that we lived with God and that while we might go through trials on this earth, it is for our eternal benefit. Most of all, I love knowing that I will be able to live with my family for all eternity. Families truly are forever. I'm a Mormon because I know that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Earth once again and that the Book of Mormon is true. Sure, I grew up in the church, but I've had a personal conviction that the Gospel is true, that the fullness of the Gospel has been restored and that God really does have a plan for us! God is Good!

How I live my faith

Well, I'm a missionary! Going out and telling others about Christ is the greatest way to live my faith and strengthen my faith as well! I always try to be an example to others around me, to learn from others and to develop Christlike attributes. It isn't always easy, but it's always worth it!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Nope! Those who choose to serve missions do so because they have a knowledge of this wonderful gospel. I am on my mission so that I can help others come closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It is far from easy, but I know that this is the single greatest thing that I can do for others. I've been able to truly understand what it means to serve the Lord with all of my heart, might, mind and strength as I have served the Lord in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. Show more Show less
