Hi I'm John Barker

I was born and raised in Chandler, Arizona. I served a full time mission in the Chile Osorno Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Arizona. Most of my extended family lives in Utah. I also have family in California, and as far as London. I graduated from Chandler High School in 2009, attended two years of college at ASU, and then completed a two year mission in the Chile Osorno Mission. I love my family. I love spending time with friends, watching movies, bowling, rock climbing, and pretty much everything outdoors. I enjoy reading books such as fantasy fiction novels. I love computers and engineering. I'm a very hands on person. I am the youngest in my family with four siblings, who are all married. I have sixteen, almost seventeen, nieces and nephews whom I love very much. I live life to the fullest and enjoy every moment.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As I grew up I gained a testimony for myself that this is the true church. I did not come to know all at once, but little by little. I look forward to sharing this wonderful gospel for the rest of my life, and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I had the oppurtunity to teach the youth ages ten and eleven for two and a half years prior to serving a mission. I absolutely love children and love to watch them learn and grow. Every day I come closer to Christ, and I hope to be able to be a positive influence to everyone I meet, and share how the gospel has blessed my life.
