Hi I'm Abram

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I've played baseball my whole life and have my full time mission call. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 22 siblings. I love to play baseball and basketball. I played on my high school varsity baseball team and after that I played double A baseball. I now have my mission call and am leaving for the Cape Coast Ghana mission on October 5th 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love to feel the spirit. This church has brought so much joy in my life. I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach others about the LDS church because this really is a gospel of happiness. Where families can be together forever so that loved ones can see each other again beyond the veil, and everyone is covered by Jesus Christ's atonement.

How I live my faith

At this point I am really just trying to be a good example for those around me and be worthy of holding a temple recommend. I am a home teacher and visit my families monthly. I bare my testimony almost every month in sacrament meeting.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Abram
The Book of Mormon was written by prophets dating back to 600 years before Christ. It was basically used as a journal for the prophets who resided in America at the time of Christ. Then a prophet named Mormon came along and combined the records of all of the prophets. The last prophet to write in the book was Moroni. He buried the book in a hill to hide the book from his enemies who sought to destroy it. Many years later a boy named Joseph Smith was visited by an angel and was told to find the book and translate it. So under inspiration from God he found the book and was able to translate the book to English and print the book into a paper copy. Show more Show less

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Abram
The Mormon prophet is chosen by God. This is a truly inspired church. Man can not perfectly run such an organization which is why our church is so great because it isn't run by man it is ran by our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
