Hi I'm Justin

I'm a Missionary serving in Boston Massachusetts: I Represent - I make a difference - I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Mountains of San Diego County. In the 4-H Clubs and Boy Scouts I've learned values of Responsibility and Leadership. I've also learned that if you ever hope to achieve something in this world you've got to put forth the effort.

Why I am a Mormon

A few years ago, in 2005, The prophet Gordon B. Hinkley extended a Challenge unto ALL Members of the Church. To start and finish reading "The Book of Mormon" I thought this was a great opportunity, so I took the challenge. I started at the end of July and had made a schedule in order to finish by the end of the year. As I was continuing with the challenge of reading, I realized that a major reason why the Prophet Gordon B. Hinkley had given us this challenge to read 'The Book of Mormon' at this time was because the 23rd of December, 2005 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Joseph Smith. As I got closer to the 23rd of December, 2005 I made sure that I kept my plans and finished on time. I had reached my goal, I finished reading the Book of Scripture. But I wasn't done with the Challenge; I had to follow the instruction of the Prophet, to pray about it and gain a testimony of these things. I decided to pray to ask God himself if This Book - "The Book of Mormon" is a true book of scripture, and that Joseph Smith was indeed a true Prophet chosen of God and that if this Church, 'The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints' is God's Church on the Earth Today with the same priesthood power and authority that Jesus Christ had established 2000 years ago. After praying to know, I received a peace, a feeling of comfort and direction. I knew that God Loved me personally and also that these feelings were from him; that he had given me this witness, this testimony, this knowledge, this truth. My prayer had been answered through the feelings of the Holy Ghost and I know for myself that this is His way of answering my prayer. As promised in (Matthew 7:7): "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you", My humble prayer was answered by God.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Missionary Serving the Lord and many people in need. I've devoted these 2 years to learning the Spanish language to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those of many different nations in the Area of Boston Massachusetts who are seeking a greater understanding of the Love of God and have a hope to receive the blessings of His Love.
