Hi I'm John

I'm a exercise enthusiast. I am a missionary in Texas & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I am serving right now as a full time missionary, in the Houston Texas Mission. I have a great love for my savior Jesus Christ. I have been blessed in my life from being a member of his church. I am 20 Years old right now, Some of the things I enjoy are Exercising, combat sports, team sports, video games, and wakeboarding. You can pretty well say that I am a typical guy who loves Jesus ,and oh yeah I am a mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the mormon capital of the world Utah, for a long time that was the only reason that I was a mormon. Then my friends who were all a little bit older than me started to go on their missions, and I was not sure whether or not I wanted to go on one or not. mostly becasue I did not know if I really believed in what I would be teaching as a missionary. So I began reading my scriptures, Starting in The Gospels of the New Testament, and then making my way into the Book of Mormon I knew that all of the things that I was reading were true. I also began to reflect on my life and recognize all the blessings that I had recieved from being a mormon, and then over a period of time my faith began to grow to where when the opporitunity for me to go on my mission came I could not wait to go out and tell people about the wonderful message that we have to share with them. While I have been on my mission sharing these things I have felt my love for my savior grow so much that I know the things that I am doing are right, and I have felt the Holy Ghost Witness to my soul of the Truth of the gospel, and of my saviors love for me. That witness along with many others is the reason why, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my life the way a disciple of Jesus christ would. Loving my Lord and my God, and loving my fellow man as a brother or sister in Christ. I do my best to show my love for my savior by keeping His commandments serving others, and listening to the teachings of His Prophet.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

John
 We don not have a paid clergy because God has explicitly stated that the gospel should not be preached and that service in the lords church should not be rendered for the love of "filthy lucre" or money.  Show more Show less
