Hi I'm Russell

I grew up in a small Utah town. I'm a missionary in Lima Peru. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hiking in the mountains around where I live, also fishing, hunting, and chasing wild horses in the desert. I'm and all-state football player and I also play basketball and soccer. My favorite subject in school is history and has been from a very young age. I've gone on several trips back east to explore Americas great history. I have a mission call right now and I plan on attending school when I get home.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ restored to the earth. I've prayed for a witness of this and I know it to be true. If I didn't believe in the message of this church I wouldn't be sacrificing the next two years of my life to share it! I can't even imagine living life without the knowledge of the gospel. It bring love and hope to the hearts of all who allow it to touch them. Because of the message of this church I know that I can eternally be with my family that I can become perfect. In my mind there is nothing more incredible than the promise that we can be with those we love for eternity!

How I live my faith

My favorite way to live my faith is by doing service to people in my community. The best type is always silents acts of service. Me and my dad are "home teaching" partners and we visit several different widows every month. I find that I gain just as much from our visits as they do from having us there! I love it. I do my best to be a friend to everyone I meet. I fall short very often, but I hope that my efforts will someday prevail! In my ward, I am the oldest boy in our young men group so I'm constantly on my toes to be a good example to the younger guys.
