Hi I'm Nelson Brian

I grew up in Salt Lake City, graduated from high school, and I will now be serving a mission in Portland Oregon. Im a Mormon.

About Me

Born and raised in Salt Lake City I've always been athletic loving all kinds of sports. Football and wrestling became my main sports in high school I was qb for 2 years and captain of the wrestling team. My senior year of wrestling I went to state and got academic all-state. I also love any water sport I grew up at lake powell. I also like to draw mainly cars. I'm going to be serving a mission in the Oregon Portland mission. After my mission I plan on going to college for a degree in business finance. Then major in business administration.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church I know it is the true church. I'm grateful to have been raised in the faith however I haven't always known the church was true for myself. My conversion was a long one but it was maid possible by the great examples of my friends and family. I noticed the true happiness that they had when serving the lord. When I felt lost I decided to follow there example and follow our Savior, Jesus Christ. This is the restored gospel in the latter days. I have seen and feel the joy that comes from it and that is why I choose to serve a mission I want others to feel that same joy. This is Christ's church and he does lead it through a modern day prophet. Joseph smith was a true prophet and all prophets that have followed him are true prophets. I know that Christ suffered for all of us and that his atoning sacrifice can help bring all of us back to him. I know the atonement can help anybody conquer any problem they have I have felt it in my life. I know we are literal children of a Heavenly Father and am very grateful for all the blessing and opportunities he has given to me. I can't wait to serve my mission and brings others to Christ.

How I live my faith

I have been secretary and president young men's groups in the church. I also helped to plan our wards youth conference. I've know been called and set apart as a missionary. However I live my faith day to day, trying my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ.
