Hi I'm Joe

I'm a Mormon missionary serving in Boston!

About Me

I am from southern New Mexico but am currently serving a 2 year mission for the church in Massachusetts! My mission has been the happiest experience of my life so far, I love it out here! I went to one year of college before I came out on my mission and played baseball there. I love anything that has to do with sports or the outdoors, including: baseball, football, snowboarding, hiking, 4-wheeling, and much more! Most importantly, I love my family, they are incredible!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know, without a doubt, that the church is true. As I have tried my best to live the teachings of the Savior, I have found true happiness. Because we are all children of our Heavenly Father, I know that we can all develop a close and personal relationship with Him. I have felt His love in my life so many times and it has brought me peace and comfort. Drawing close to our Heavenly Father is only possible through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was the perfect example of how we should strive to live our lives. I know that as we try our best to be like Him, we will be happy. I have prayed for truth and light in my life, and God has answered my prayers. That is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the Lord as a missionary! As a representative of Jesus Christ, I do my best to love and serve all of God's children, and invite them to come unto Him.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Joe
I proselyte because the message I share has blessed my life incredibly. I often think about what life would be like if I didn't have the eternal perspective that the gospel has given me. My grandpa just passed away a couple of weeks ago and I was very close to him. It is always difficult when loved ones pass away. I gained so much comfort and strength from my belief that I will see my grandpa again, that there is life after this. The gospel has given me a knowledge of where I came from, why I am here, and where I go after this life. The whole purpose of God's plan is for us to be able to return to live with Him again in never ending-happiness. I know that God has a plan for us, and that He loves us unconditionally. At the center of that plan is His Son Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for me and all of God's children. He felt all that we will ever feel in this life, and because of that, He knows exactly how to help us. I know that He has the power to lift any burden and soothe any pain that we have. God's plan and gospel have always brought me peace in times of difficulty, and I know it can do the same for all of His children. That is why I want to share it with others!  Show more Show less
