We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Jaron

I'm a student getting ready for the rest of my life and still a Mormon.

About Me

 My name is Jaron. I am currently a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Mormons. I went to a semester of college before I began serving my mission. Some of the things I like to do are play sports with my friends, play video games, and just hang out with my friends, so pretty much I'm a normal 19 year old guy. I'm kind of good at math, and I'm hoping to be a college profesor when I grow up and teach both religion classes and math classes. So yup, that's me.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were Mormon when I was born, and my Grandparents as well. It was always expected of me to be a good kid, to attend church, to read the scriptures, etc. But that's not why I'm still a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one true and living church on the earth. I know it because I know The Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was the prophet of the restoration, that we have a living prophet, and because I can testify and I have felt the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ in my life. I know this not because somebody told me, not because somebody proved to me that this church was true through persuasion or because it's the tradition I grew up with. I know because I have followed what the Scriptures have challenged me to do. I read them, I prayed about them and I received answer after answer that they are true. The Holy Ghost has born witness to me that this church is true, and that is why I'm a Mormon

How I live my faith

Well, for one thing I'm serving a mission, I've been called by a prophet to preach the gospel in Spanish to the people of Georgia. Before this I served in a small leadership position in my local Ward, I helped put together activities for a group of members in my college Ward, and I actively participated in the Young Men's program in my Ward. This church has given me many opportunities to serve and to help better my leadership abilities.
