Hi I'm Christopher

I was raised in Richland Washington, and I'm Serving a mission in Nevada Las Veags West and love it! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an easy going guy, i love sports and enjoy anything that is considered a sport. I played football, wrestling, and Track and field in high school and was offered scholarships in Track. But i gave them up because i wanted to serve a mission. I am now currently serving in the Las Vegas Nevada West Mission and enjoy every second of it! I have come to know with a surety that is gospel is true, and since i have recieved this answer in my whole life has be organized my life and gear my life and all that is about me, in accordiance to those standards, i have been taught.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member my whole life. But when I was a young teenager I decided to rebel against the church and my parents. I was like Alma the younger (a Book of Mormon prophet) in a way I went out seeking to destroy the church. I had friends that put me down the wrong path and I became addicted to all kinds of things. But one Night I came home angry at the world and told my father off saying that I hated him and the church. I stormed down stairs into my bedroom in a fit of anger. I grabbed my Book of Mormon why it was out I have no clue and throw it at the wall as hard as I could. Something in me though showed remorse for the book and i went over to pick it up. It was opened to Alma chapter 5 (scripture in the Book of Mormon). I began to read the chapter and I was awoken by the spirit for all the stupid things I had done. Right then I fell to the earth crying to God and my Savior for forgiveness. My life instantly changed and I gave up every thing to become a disciple of Jesus Christ and become a Witness of him completely in everything I did. I still struggled with temptations of my past transgressions time to time because of what I had done, but I have now righted my life and will never return to my old life style.

How I live my faith

Before I left on my mission to Nevada, I was a Ward Missionary and Vice President in my seminary class (enrollment of 300 students) also was President in Decons, Teachers, and First Assident in Preist Quorum. SInce i have been on my mission (of which i am currently serving) i have served as District Leader and now i am serving as a Trainer for new missionaries. Living and being part of all this different resonsiblilities have taught me much of service and love to my fellow men. I guess you could say that is what this whole church is all about. Service to our fellow Brothers and Sisters. "every soul is great in the sight of God."

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries are called by God to Spread forth the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Purpose of a missionary is to Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the holy ghost, and enduring to the end. That is the purpose all missionaries have, and why they come to teach everyone that will listen.  Show more Show less
