Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm John

I'm a triplet, I'm always looking for a good time and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

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

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.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

John
We do not worship Joseph Smith. He was called by God to be a prophet to restore the Church of Jesus Christ. Our worship centers on God the Father and Jesus Christ our Savior. Although, God calls prophets to do his work on earth. Like Moses, Adam, Noah etc. Joseph Smith was the prophet that restored the church of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

John
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is very important to us as member's of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and to all of mankind. Without the Atonement which consists of Christ's suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane for our sins, His death on the cross and His resurrection we could not return to live with God. Christ chose to take upon himself the sins of all mankind so that we could be able to repent and be cleansed through His mercy and grace. When we are baptized we feel of the power of the Atonement by being cleansed from our sins. I personally have felt the power and mercy of the Atonement. I know that My Savior loves me and I know that He did suffer for me. I love him with all my soul and will do as he has asked of me, because he's given so much for me. Show more Show less
