Hi I'm Joseph

I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town called Saint David in Arizona. I have a wonderful loving family with six children of which I am the second youngest. I enjoy fixing things, building things, and working with my hands. I do construction, mechanics, welding, and computer repair. I love to sing, and also to arm wrestle. I live to learn and I love to work. My family grew close together by working together. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has given me peace, purpose, perspective, and the resources to deal with difficulties. I love spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, and seeing the joy that it brings to the lives of other people and to mine.  I'm currently serving as a full time missionary for the Lord in the Massachusetts Boston Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a person who asks questions. I wanted answers about life. I wanted to know "Why". I wanted purpose. I needed perspective. I am afraid of the darkness that comes from not understanding the answers to life's questions. God wants us to know what life is all about. He loves us and wants us to be happy. Because God knows all things, we can ask Him for answers to our questions through prayer. Prayer is two way communication between God and us. I know God hears and answers prayers. I am a Mormon because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's institution to prepare us to live with God in perfect happiness forever.

How I live my faith

I'm trying to be like Jesus Christ, and inviting others to do the same.

What is the Book of Mormon?

There are only three things you need to know about the Book of Mormon. First, the Book of Mormon is proof that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Savior of the World. After he was killed, he rose from the dead and came to the people who lived in the Americas anciently. Those people wrote about it, and their writings are in the Book of Mormon. This proves that Jesus Christ was not some myth or legend of the Jews. He is the Son of God, our Savior, He has power over death, and the power to save us. Second, The Book of Mormon contains the keys to happiness. Everyone is looking for happiness. We all desperately want it, but often don't know where to find it. We experiment with different things, and many conclude that they are as happy as life can make them. Circumstances may change, but if we have the keys to happiness, we can be at peace. Third, The Book of Mormon contains a promise on how you can know for absolute certainty that it is true. Show more Show less
