Hi I'm Nicolas

I've traveled the world. I've seen struggles and triumph. I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've always enjoyed traveling. Due to my fathers employment my family has been to Haiti and Bosnia. We've seen a good portion Europe and I hope to one day see the rest of the world. In each new place I've lived there is a new thing I've grown to love there, whether it has been the people, the culture, or the food (almost always does food play part haha) or a combination of all three. I've learned from my experiences in Haiti and Bosnia, to be grateful for the conditions I live in, and to remember those around me who are at as well off.

Why I am a Mormon

While in Haiti my family and I had a chance to become friends with a wonderful man named Sam. Sam was from Mali Africa, and had come to Haiti seeking more gainful employment. While there he quickly became our closest friend and one of the people my father trusted the most. He saw that something was different about us and wanted that in his life. When Sam was baptized I saw how it changed his life and how he wished to share it with his family. We take for granted the blessing of being born members of this church and I'm grateful that I got to see the church the way Sam sees it.

How I live my faith

I strive constantly to live up to the standards that the Lord has set. I seek to be better than I was the day before, to follow the prophet and all the commandments. Now that I'm on my mission I better see how Christ views everyone of us. I look to Christ and strive to be a light unto others as he has been a light unto me.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

It is the gate to which we enter in to God's presence. A gift we should share, not just with those living but those who never got a chance to receive that gift themselves Show more Show less
