Hi I'm Chelsea Jo

I'm a missionary in Minnesota, I'm the oldest of 6 kids, I'm an athlete and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love playing sports and playing outside! I play lacrosse, water polo, soccer, and I like to do MMA. I love going camping and playing lots of games in the mountains like bocce ball, frisbee golf, and card games by a camp fire. I love my family! I'm the oldest of 6 kids and I love spending time with them! I've got 4 brothers and 1 sister and TONS of aunts, uncles, cousins. It's always super fun when we get together! Right now Im serving a mission in Minnesota and I love it! I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. There is nothing like serving the Lord 24/7! There is some crazy weather here with all the snow and sub-zero temperatures and then the humid summers, so it makes for some fun stories!

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into the church. I'm still a Mormon because I've done my research, and I've asked God if the Book of Mormon is true, and I received an answer that it is, and there's no way I can deny it.

How I live my faith

 Right now I'm living my faith by serving a full time mission for my Heavenly Father. It's a 24/7 job and a privilege that I get to share this wonderful gospel with the people around me. When I'm not serving a mission, I live my life the way Christ asks me to. Which is not always easy, but I know that it's the only way I can obtain true joy in this life.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Chelsea Jo
 Nope. Not all Mormons have to serve missions. It is strongly recommended for young men to serve missions though. I know that I would feel extremely ungrateful if I hadn't taken this time out of my life to serve my Father in Heaven. Plus, I want to share the joy I get from this gospel with all that I come in contact with, because everyone on this earth is one of my brothers or sisters and I care for their happiness.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Chelsea Jo
ABSOLUTELY! We believe in Jesus Christ and believe that he is the literal Son of God and that it is only through him, his suffering and resurrection, that we can be saved from physical and spirtitual death. I think one reason why there are people out there who don't believe we are Christians is because we don't always go by the full name of our church. We go by "Mormons", LDS, Latter-Day Saints, etc... But the name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Everything that we teach is centered on Jesus Christ and his atoning sacrifice for us. Show more Show less
