Hi I'm Elder Mitchell Thunell

I am from Denver Colorado. I am serving a mission in Naga Philippines. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church, I am serving in the Philippines Naga Mission. It has been a wonderful experience to see the gospel of Jesus Christ change peoples lives as a missionary. I love hiking, running and just being outside. I have lived abroad in England for two years and had the wonderful opportunity of seeing many amazing countries in my time there. I enjoy seeing films and listening to music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ died for mine and everyone's sins. I know that Joseph Smith restored this church and saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I also know that he translated the Book of Mormon and I know that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet. I am a member of this church because it is all about others, nothing that the church does is for personal growth or gain. I love this church for the service it gives and am very excited to give to those in the Philippines. I know that every aspect of this church is true and could never deny that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by service. I try every day to give to at least one person. By doing so I bring joy into my life and the lives of those I help. I am living my faith by service a 2 year mission in the Philippines. I serve by being a leader to those that belong to this church, by planning events and helping out with the overall well being of those in our church. I live my faith by keeping myself clean from inappropriate media and keeping high moral standards.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Elder Mitchell Thunell
We do not worship Joseph Smith. He was a prophet and servant of the Lord. He translated the Book of Mormon and restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ back to this earth. He is very important to the church but we in no way worship Joseph Smith. We worship our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
