Hi I'm Calvin Fischer

I wrestle and play ultimate frisbee. I like to read books. I enjoy hiking in the Olympic Mountains. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have four younger siblings. My favorite sport is wrestling but I do like to run cross country as well. My favorite author is Brandon Sanderson. I enjoy swing dancing and computer science.I work at a port. The coolest place that I ever hiked was a place in the Olympic Mountains called One Thousand Acre Meadows.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised LDS and gained my understanding of truth on different aspects of the gospel at a time, but I have as long as can remember, known the truth of the Book of Mormon. Because I know the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God and we continue to have prophets today. Because I know the truth of the gospel, I strive to learn and grow because of it. Every time that I open the scriptures, my testimony is strengthened. I really like learning and I'm a bit of a skeptic, but I believe that anyone who truly studies the Book of Mormon prayerfully will come to know that it is true.

How I live my faith

Before my mission, every Sunday I would bless the sacrament and sing hymns. Occasionally in Sunday School I taught lessons. On Wednesdays in participated in youth activities. When my friends asked me questions, I answered them as best I can. I recently have the opportunity to be part of the leadership for a youth camp dedicated on missionary work, and it was one of the best opportunities to serve that I have ever had. Now I am on a mission, serving in the Fresno California area. I love it here and I love serving people as Christ would if he were here.
