Hi I'm Elder Foslom

I have been called back home to serve in the Portland Oregon Mission as a Missionary.

About Me

I am 25 and am currently serving as a full time missionary in the Portland Oregon Mission. Before I came on my mission I was going to College working towards a degree in wildlife management. I love woodworking, art, literature and music. I make many fine things out of wood such as Flutes, Pens and Animal Carvings. I enjoy drawing and I design graphics for a clothing company my Brother started. I also love music and play the Native American Flute, Guitar, Harmonica, Mandolin.

Why I am a Mormon

After many years of not having the gospel in my life I decided to come back to church. I started to study and live by the teachings and found Great truth and peace in doing so. I have felt a positive effect in my life since exercising and holding fast to my faith. others have noticed a great change in me and have said I am a lot more happy than I used to be.

How I live my faith

I love my fellow man and help in anyway I am able. I am serving as a full time missionary but before my mission I was a Teacher in the deacons quorum, a home teacher, and I served as a Scout Master for 4 years.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Elder Foslom
The purpose of this service it to give everyone ample opportunity to develop self reliance and care for themselves and others. If you give a man a fish and you have fed him for a day but if you teach a man to fish you have given him the ability to feed himself and others for a lifetime. Show more Show less
