Hi I'm Anthony Thomsen

I grew up in Star Idaho. I'm a full time missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love football and doing work for others. Serving is so amazing and I love getting that opportunity. I have 9 nieces and 2 nephews. I have 6 older siblings and I serve diligently as a full time missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I've been assigned to labor in the California Roseville Mission. I reported to the Provo MTC on Wednesday July 20th, 2016 and will speak English.

Why I am a Mormon

This is the only true church on the face of this earth. I know that, I have studies so hard to find out what is right for me. I prayed to know that the Prophet Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. As I prayed to know I was overcome with the love and joy brought on by the Holy Ghost. I know that this church is true and the Book of Mormon is the most correct of any book on this earth. A man can grow closer to God by reading and abiding by its precepts, I testify of that knowledge.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving my mission in the California Roseville Mission. I departed on July 20, 2016 and will serve for a period of 24 months. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and everyday I find a new way to express my love and passion for the Savior. He suffered for us in every sense of pain, sickness, sorrows, and sin. He knows me and I will serve Him with everything I have, so at the last day of my mission I can look my mission president in the eye and say "I gave all that I have for this gospel, I loved it here and I'm sad to leave, but its someone else's turn now. These people are prepared for the next missionaries."
