Hi I'm James Israelsen

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love this gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is James. I love the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing, and spending time with family. I am the youngest of 7 siblings. I am an uncle and have 17 nieces and nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the LDS faith all of my life. I have chosen to continue being a member because this gospel brings joy and happiness that no other thing on this earth can. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for all of us. I know that Christ feels all of our sorrows and pains. He died for you because He loves you personally. I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father lives. We can all be with our families together for forever. I know all of these things without a shadow of a doubt.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always striving to become more Christ centered. As a member of the Mormon faith I have had a few different callings. I was recently the membership and financial clerk for my ward. I kept track of membership records and finances of the ward I was in.
