Hi I'm Elder Crandall

I grew up in Arizona. Throughout school I was involved in theatre, I'm currently serving a mission in Halifax Canada. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was a theater junkie all my four years of high school. I've been in multiple plays and musicals, my favorite being the Wizard of Oz. Being in theater is like having a second family. A theater troop works best when we all get along, that way its easier to relate out on the stage. That's why I love the Mormon Church. It's my second family, every one works to help each other. After I serve my mission I plan to come home and go to flight school. It's my dream to be a pilot and fly around the world and experience different cultures. I'm currently serving in the Halifax Canada Mission and nothing makes me more happy. I've come so close to God and i know he is here helping me now.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because i was converted by the loving message the Book of Mormon shares with the world. The Book of Mormon testifies of our Savior Jesus Christ and how he visited the American continent after his resurrection. After following Moroni's words found in Chapter ten of Moroni verses 3-5 I prayed to know if this message was true. I felt a warmth spread across my body and I knew that this message was true. God has restored his church to the earth and he did so through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and it continues strong today. Thomas S. Monson is the current Prophet and you can hear what he has to say on LDS.org along with other leaders of the Church.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two year mission to help bring people to Christ. I know that this church is the true Church and i want to share this message with everyone that i can. I study the scriptures daily and do temple work whenever i can. I read the Book of Mormon so I will be able to go out and teach about how wonderful it is to people on my mission.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Elder Crandall
No not all Mormons are required to serve a mission. It's something I have prayed about for a long time and I received an answer that I should go. Nothing spreads the Lord's church faster than good missionary work, and I can't wait to serve the Lord. Show more Show less
