Hi I'm Joe Nelson

Raised in Seattle, Washington. I'm a brother, son, and uncle. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm currently preparing for my full-time mission in Recife Brazil. I run track, specializing in High Jump and Triple Jump, and I also play football. I am committed to be a wide receiver for BYU once I return from my mission. I am the youngest brother in the church sponsored TV series "Two Brothers Two." I am a proud Uncle to my niece and nephew.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is true. I feel it in my heart and the gospel has brought a wonderful peace to my life that I can't find anywhere else. The knowledge of this truth has made my life happier; especially knowing that I can live with my family forever. I know there is a prophet on the earth today. He receives revelation that can help us all become more perfect beings. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. It is true. I know because I've read it. This church is true, and it brings me profound joy.

How I live my faith

Currently I am a home teacher to various saints in my area. I read the Book of Mormon everyday and try to become more Christ like. Most of my religious studies right now are missionary focused. I report soon to the Missionary Training Center where I will be learning more about the Church, how to speak the Portuguese language, and how to effectively share the fullness of the true restored gospel.
