Hi I'm Cameron

An Arizona-born member of the Nevada All-State Choir, I'm a little guy with big dreams. I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young man primed and ready to serve a mission in Perú! I enjoy singing, writing stories, helping out friends and family, and like every other young man, video games. I love being a good influence on those around me, and while I know that there are many problems in the world, I look to the future with hope and faith.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings of this Church have brought me happiness and given me hope in times where I have felt hopeless. I especially love the teachings of the atonement of Jesus Christ, who forgives me even when I find it impossible to forgive myself. It is whast keeps me moving forward.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to train for my work in the mission field by being called as a ward missionary. That means I am able to assist the missionaries in their work here in my town, as well as personally helping others in my neighborhood.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Cameron
The Book of Mormon is a compilation of the writings of ancient prophets abridged and commented on by a prophet-historian named Mormon, after whom the book is named. It tells the history of a prophet named Lehi, who was commanded by God to leave the city of Jerusalem at around 600 B.C. Lehi and his family traveled to the Americas, the "promised land," where his decendents lived for about 1000 years before one of two warring tribes fought the other into extinction. Sound exciting? In the book, Mormon records both significant events in the history of this people, and teachings of many prophets over that time period. These words tell us of sacred ordinances, such as baptism, and our Heavenly Father's plan of happiness for us. They also testify of Jesus Christ, who appeared to the people after his crucifiction and taught them his words. Mormon ends with his own story, and together with his son Moroni, he writes a powerful testimony of the truth of the words written in the book. After the death of his father, Moroni writes a promise that whoever will read the book and pray earnestly to know of its truth will receive a witness from the Holy Ghost that they are true.
