    Elder Rasband’s birthday is February 6. He turned 69 years old this year!

    He promised his mom that he would never break the Word of Wisdom.

    When he was 12, Elder Rasband found a job driving a tractor that picked up golf balls at a golf course.

    He had some close friends growing up that he still keeps in touch with today.

    He and his wife, Melanie, have five children and 27 grandchildren.
