Hi I'm John
I'm a missionary in the Florida, Jacksonville Mission and I've been out almost two years. It's been the greatest blessing in my life to serve a mission and help people come unto Christ. I come from a family of 6. I'm a triplet and have two other brother's on a mission as well. I love having fun. Anything that's fun I'll do it, you just let me know and I'm there!
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised in the LDS church my whole life. I constantly strive to follow the teachings of this gospel because I know it is what the Savior would have me do. It's the only way that I will be able to return to live with him and my family for all eternity. I know that this gospel has changed my life even though I've been a member my whole life. I'm imperfect but I know that because My Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for my sins I can be forgiven. I love him and I love my Heavenly Father I am eternally grateful for all they have given me throughout my life. Jesus Christ and My Heavenly Father live, I know it and I know that all of us can know it. By sincere and faithful prayer we can come to know the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the only way to truly come to know the only true church of Jesus Christ which God restored through Joseph Smith. I know that through him Christ restored his true church to the earth and that he translated the Book of Mormon by the gift and power of God. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that it is the word of God. It is a guide for all of mankind on the earth today and is another testimony of Jesus Christ. I know these things to be true and the never ending blessing that will come for those who embrace and find this everlasting gospel. I say these things declaring them to be true in the name of My Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, Amen
Please share your feelings/testimony of the Restoration of the Gospel.
The Restoration of the Gospel is such an important part in my life. I am so thankful for it and the profound impact that it's had in my life. I'm thankful unto Joseph Smith for his courage and faith to pray and ask God which church he should join. I know that in answer to his prayer God and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph and told him that the true church of Jesus Christ was not on the earth. Christ then called Joseph to be the prophet to restore the church of Jesus Christ again to the earth. He was lead to the record of the dealings with the inhabitants of the Americas and he translated it by the gift and power of God. It was published as the Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ and it contained a fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the church of Jesus Christ is on the earth again as it was when christ was on the earth. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a prophet of God and that he was chosen to restore this church to the earth again. And that this gospel can truly bring happiness and peace to anyone who seeks it. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
How I live my faith
I'm on a 2 yr mission for my church. My purpose as a missionary is to help others to come unto Christ by teaching them of the gospel that Christ has restored by Joseph Smith. I help all of those who I meet to have greater hope in Jesus Christ by being baptized into His Church and by living the teachings of His Gospel throughout their lives to help them to recieve the blessings that will come into their lives from it.
