Hi I'm Ethan

I grew up in Sydney, Australia. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born into a family with two LDS parents and have two siblings, both younger brothers. I have been an active member my whole life, completed 4 years of seminary and my Duty To God award. I graduated school in 2016 and had 6 months before I could serve a mission. After praying and asking the lord, I decided to follow the spirits promptings and work to save for my mission rather than attend university, which I will do when I return from my mission, so I moved in with friends, who soon became family, in country NSW, to work on a dairy farm. I love my family, I love music and playing the guitar and piano. When I return from my mission I want to become a veterinarian as well as a husband and father.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and want to return to live with them with my family. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches us how to do this and it's an organisation that allows us to become more like Jesus Christ. As a Mormon, I can learn about who I am, where I come from, why I am here and where I am going. I can take the steps that are necessary for me to reach the ultimate goal of eternal happiness. As a Mormon, I learn to recognise the holy ghost which helps me make good choices, and can feel and understand Heavenly Fathers and Jesus Christs love for us. We learn how to become better people, through Jesus Christs atonement and are taught how to live healthy, happy lives.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I have the privilege of blessing the sacrament in our Sacrament Meetings. I also usually play the piano during these, and other church meetings. I am an active member of the church youth and do a range of activities and service that allow me to develop as an individual and build my faith. I am also a missionary, called to preach the message of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Japan for a period of 2 years. I strive to be an example to my friends and can family, and a representative of Jesus Christ.
