Hi I'm Bryant Bradler

I grew up in Indiana. I'm one of eleven children. I love basketball. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and have been called to serve a 2 year full time mission in Sau Paulo Interlagos Mission Brazil. I am excited to serve and nervous about learning a new language. I have one brother also on a mission in California and a sister who leaves for a mission to Oregon in December. I love basketball, and spending time with friends and family, and plan on attending college when I return. I plan to enter the medical field.

Why I am a Mormon

I like to bear my testimony i know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, and he was a true prophet of God. I believe that family history work is a very important tool to help us bring many people unto God. I know the reading your scriptures and saying your prayers are important tools to help everyone to come unto Christ. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God, and that he is directing the church in the way that God wants him too. I know my family loves me, and I love them too. I know this is the true church and that if I follow the teachings of the church, I will be blessed in many ways. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I have attended church all of my life. I have been in youth groups and Young adult groups. I attended an early morning scripture study class before school all four years of high school. I have been a hometeacher since I was fourteen and love going out with the local missionaries whenever I can.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Bryant Bradler
No they are not required to serve a mission. It is highly recommended for the men in the Church, but everyone has their free agency and they can choose as they please. Show more Show less
