Hi I'm Joe

I am from northern New York, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a missionary for the church right now in Montana. For 2 years I serve Jesus Christ in bringing his children to him. For the 4 years before I started my service I was in college for Chemistry. I played a lot of racquetball through college. I have 2 younger brothers and a loving mom and dad. we all joined the church when I was 11 years old when the missionaries were introduced to us by my parents friends.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 11 years old the missionaries came to our house for 6 mo solid. Every sunday night from 5-930pm we woudl have dinner and talk for ever. My dad had a lot of questions but never one they didnt answer to his satisfaction. My mom and I didn't have so many questions, just a few here and there. But when they told me the story of Joseph Smith, when he went out to pray at 14, I knew that they were teaching truth. I knew that it was all right. I had a feeling of peace and content come over me that I had never felt before. my parents and I along with my borthers were baptised at the end of that 6 mo period and have been here in the church since for 11 amazing years.

How I live my faith

Before i left home to serve a mission for the church I taught 8-9 year olds about the basics of the gospel. I also was a Cub Scout leader for the same ammount of time. I then taught 12 and 13 year olds followed by 14 and 15 year olds about the gospel. I was also an assistant scout master for them. Now I serve as a missionary for the church in Montana for 2 years. The greatest service I have done so far.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is a second witness of his ministry among thr children of God given by a part of the tribe of Israel who left Jerusalem 600 years befor Christ was born. Its purpose is to convince all men every where that Jesus is the Christ and that through modern prophets the church He established in ancient times has been restored to the earth once more.
