Hi I'm Justin

I'm a snowboarder, love cars, movies and i am in Chicago. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20, grew up in the south Salt Lake Valley of Utah. I love mountains especially when they are covered in snow. I like sports particularly snowboarding and basketball. I love movies, cars and spending time with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have studied out the church and read and prayed about it. I have received a personal witness from the holy spirit that this is Christ's Church restored to the earth in these days. I grew up in a LDS family and admired my Parents for their Faith. I have seen how the gospel can greatly bless the lives of all those who live it. By the choices i have made throughout my life i have seen how the gospel has effected me. Without the gospel I would probably have a much different life and have less joy. Following the commandments of God brings us the best, and longest lasting joy that this life can provide, nothing else can counterfeit that peace and joy.

How I live my faith

 I am currently living my faith by serving a 2 year mission preaching the gospel in Chi city. The Chicago-land area has been my home for the last year and will be for a while longer. I do my best to assist people in coming unto Christ and learning of the fullness of his gospel. Daily i look for opportunities to share the gospel with those who lack it and help them grow closer to Christ. As they make a decision to follow Christ i help them to enter the waters of baptism. I also look for opportunities to help those whose faith is lacking as well as serve those around me. I look for opportunities not only to serve the church and its members, but also the community. I love my savior Jesus Christ and strive daily to bring my life more in line with his desires.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

 The lord wants all of us to be able to have the fullness and truth of the gospel, so that we made return with him. I am out in Chicago proselyting, because the gospel has blessed my life immensely. I wish everyone could have the peace and Joy that I feel from the gospel, so i wish to tell anyone who will listen about it. We do not proselyte to increase the church membership, or gain donations, and that is not why i am out here. I do this so that others may come to know the truth and grow closer to God and their savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
