Hi I'm Cameron Swan

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in Las Vegas (Sin City) and i am serving a mission in the Hawaiian Islands.

About Me

I am a musician, and in my years at high school I was an active member of my band and my instrument of choice was percussion. I am an Eagle Scout, and have stayed active in my troop since, going on campouts as an extra youth leader and link between the young scouts and the older adult leaders. some of my hobbies include wood working especially engraving in wood, I have done a few welding projects as well as some other metal projects. I enjoy the outdoors and all the natural beauty that God has given us in all its many shapes and forms.

Why I am a Mormon

As a musician I have had the opportunity to preform and help out many different churches with music programs they are holding, and I wouldn't give up those opportunities, however their has always been something missing, a certain peaceful and comforting feeling that I have only felt in my own church, as well as other churches of my own religion.

How I live my faith

I have recently been called to serve as a missionary for the Mormon Church and have been working hard to prepare myself to become a missionary. I am a leader in the young men's group in my ward, I conduct each of our meetings and help to organize the young men for preparing lessons for the following week.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Cameron Swan
In order to be baptized you need to have a body, and since baptism is essential to to reaching heaven as we can tell from Jesus' example in the new testament, every person need to be baptized. However not everyone on the earth had the chance to be baptized by a person holding the proper priesthood, so in the temple we allow ourselves to be the body for the spirit that has passed on, so that they can receive the blessing that come from baptism.
