Hi I'm Andrew Callahan

I have been born and raised in Canada and I worked in construction to save money to go on a mission for the church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a missionary, and an outdoor enthusiast

Why I am a Mormon

I have been born and raised in the church. My parents were also born and raised in the church. I have found out for myself that the church is true though earnest scripture study and through praying to my Heavenly Father for answers to my questions. I would like to invite everyone to do as I did and study the Book of Mormon. I am currently serving a mission to spread the truth as I know it. When I was about 14 years old I didn't fully know if God existed. My parents have told me my whole life that He is real and yet I had my doubts. I had some personal challenges going on in my life and on top of those problems my three older sisters decided that this church wasn't true and I was leaning towards that as well. I decided I needed to find out for myself what the truth was and so I got on my knees and started to pray. At first I didn't feel that I got an answer so I continued to try and find out by reading the Book of Mormon. I soon gave up and just continued to live like I believed without actually knowing. When I later started to read and pray again I didn't get my answer right away again. I had some friends with me once and they were telling me their testimonies and I soon found that hey had gone through a lot of the same problems as me. The Spirit of the Lord came upon me later that night and I began to weep because the feeling of love was so strong. I then knew for myself that God was there and He loves me and wants me to be happy. I knew that the book of Mormon is true in that moment and I knew that God had answered my prayers. I know that if anyone else does what I did and reads the book of Mormon and prays about it then they too will get an answer to their prayers, it might not come right away,but it will come.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This involves finding and introducing people to the church and sharing the knowledge I have that Jesus is the Christ and the Saviour of the world. As a missionary I leave my family for two years to help others come unto Christ. I am in the England Leeds mission. My hope is to help all those I come in contact with feel of the spirit of god and to know for themselves that he lives and loves each and everyone of us.
