Hi I'm Andrew Christensen Parkin

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I played football at Highland High. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I played football and lacrosse at Highland High in Salt Lake City, Utah. I plan to attend the Business School at the University of Utah when I finish my LDS mission in Samara, Russia.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have always appreciated the Spirit that I feel in my church meetings and the dedication to serving others that is a basic principle of our church. I love the spirit of unity and brotherhood I feel in the gospel. I believe in my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know he loves me. I know that whenever I am in need, I can always get on my knees and pray to my Father in Heaven for help and guidance.

How I live my faith

I am excited to serve a full-time mission for the LDS church in Samara, Russia. I look forward to building my faith in Jesus Christ and learning to love and serve the people of Samara.
