Hi I'm John

And I love that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a child of four, with three older sisters who I love. I like playing a variety of instruments if i can get my hands on them. I enjoyed playing in the band in high school and hope that after my mission I will search for good band program when I go looking for a University. I love the quite lifestyle that nature brings to my heart. Right now I am serving in the Nevada Las Vegas mission by helping people come unto Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church all of my life. I grew up in a convert family with my father's family being the first to join. The reason I continue forth in the church is the truth that the restoration of the gospel holds for me and the understanding from the promptings of the spirit that testify the truth. Everyone becomes converted in some form and fashion and for me it was the book of Mormon. One day I started to read it from the beginning and as I read it with Full intent for spiritual growth that the book began to testify of itself. It wasn't until I went to pray that I knew it was true. The Book of Mormon gives me the testimony That I have of today. That it came from God and That it has the fullness of the gospel contained within it. It is as the Prophet Joseph Smith said "That a man can get closer to god by abiding by its precepts than any other book". I know that it is true. I know that every time I read about the restoration that it had to come to pass to Restore the church once again. That Joseph Smith really did see God the Father and Jesus Christ and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. That it is the Church that Jesus Christ established once again on the earth. I know of it through the Book of Mormon and I know as others read it they can witness for themselves of the truth that it contains.

How I live my faith

I am a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. I help other people to Find out who Jesus Christ was. That God is our Heavenly Father who loves us and that we have a modern day prophet on the earth. That the church was restored and that we can find this out through the Book of Mormon. To help other people to come unto Christ by receiving 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 

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

John
Yes, it is true and we can find this out by reading the Book of Mormon. That same account can be found in Third Nephi eleven. We can find out that it is true through reading the chapter and praying about it.   Show more Show less
