Hi I'm Nathan

I am from New Jersey. I am serving in the California Los Angles Mission. I love sports and my family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary in the California Los Angeles Mission Spanish speaking (July 2016-July 2018). However, half way through my mission my language was changed to Persian. It's really hard but I know the Lord will help me, it is his plan after all. I am the baby of 6 kids so my siblings were my role models. In High School I played basketball and baseball but I will play literally any sport. I am from New Jersey but my parents moved to Philadelphia after I entered the mission. I look to go to BYU after the mission to take advantage of their IT program. But right now, I'm just living life as a missionary and I really enjoy it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the scriptures are true. I know that the prophets talk with God and that He is the one at the head of this church. I know that he is there because he listens to me when I pray. I have no room for doubt that the church is false because when the truth is being told the Holy Ghost testifies of it. I know the church is true and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the simple things; go to church weekly, pray morning and night, and read the scriptures before I go to bed. Living the gospel isn't hard, it's very simple. Of course there are other obligations but it all starts with the basics. If we continue to do that our love for God will increase and we will grow a desire to do the other things such as go to the temple, accept callings, or visit the other members of the congregation.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

I have never turned away service because it was not a Mormon seeking it. Christ wants us to love everyone because we are all his children. We can show that love by service. Show more Show less
