Hi I'm Ellis Toomer

I grew up in Cokeville Wyoming. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a student body president. I've been able to participate in sports all four years of high school. The sports I participated in were football, wrestling and track. I love to fish, hunt, camp, float rivers and do many things outdoors. I earned my Eagle Scout and still help with scouting when needed. I love the gospel and am preparing to leave on a two-year LDS mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I love this gospel. I was able to read the Book of Mormon and receive my own testimony that it is true. General Conference also helped me love this gospel. Hearing the words of the Prophets and Apostles are a great blessing to me. I know the Church of Jesus Christ is the true church. I know that a prophet is called of God and placed to help the Church in these days. I know that family is a essential part of the plan and a great blessing in our lives. And I know that I can return to live with my Heabenly Father and family once more.

How I live my faith

I am an active participant in my church group. I serve as a assistant to the bishop in my age group. I am a home teacher to two families. They are wonderful people who help me learn and grow in this gospel. I help organize youth activities on Tuesday nights.
