Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Chad

I like smoothies. I love to sing. I live for Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have recently returned from serving a full time mission in Tulsa, Oklahoma (aka the "Buckle of the Bible Belt,") where I met a lot of good Christian people that have a strong Faith in Jesus Christ. When I wasn't out serving a 2 year mission I was playing soccer, running track, singing, making videos, drinking a smoothie, or hanging out with friends and family. I love to do all of these things, but most of all, I love God and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

There are over 96,000 different denominations within Christianity itself. God is not a God of confusion. The world is confusing and is trying to tear us down with their different interpretations of the Bible and their pathetic anti-mormon literature. I don't have to meet President Thomas S. Monson to know that he is called of God. I don't have to see the Gold Plates to know the Book of Mormon is true. I don't have to walk with the ancient apostles, see a blind man healed, a dead man raised, or witness the crucifixion of our Lord to know that Jesus is the Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. I don't need to have scientific facts, archeological evidence, or trust in the opinions of men to know that Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration. The world can claim what they want, but I know that this gospel is true! Many instances in the Bible were probably very similar to what Joseph Smith went through especially in the New Testament. I'm sure that there were many who thought “Jesus... of Nazareth?” We already have the prophets of the old testament. We don't need any more. Or perhaps the example of the Pharisees who told the Son of God that he couldn't heal on the Sabbath? Does this not prove my point? When Phillip went to tell Nathanael that “We have found him... Jesus of Nazareth...”, Nathanael had some negative preconceived notions just as the world does today. “Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?” I stand as a witness to all, that this gospel is true. My testimony does not come from the world... it comes from the conviction of the Holy Spirit of God!

How I live my faith

At least once a month we have the opportunity to visit other members of our congregation. We call it "home teaching." We visit families, share a spiritual message, and serve them any way that we can. Ultimately though we are there to help others come unto Christ and eventually have the opportunity to be sealed in the temple, as a family, for eternity. I live to serve and I serve to live. I have the desire to ultimately have eternal life with Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and my family. I desire that others have the same opportunity to find out for themselves if this is true. I know that this gospel will bring more happiness then anything the world offers. It brings TRUE and ETERNAL happiness.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Chad
God has always had and always will have a Prophet. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. God doesn't change but the world does. There are things in the world today that God needs to warn us about. God, our Heavenly Father, loves us today just as much as he loved His children thousands of years ago... so why wouldn't he bless us with divine guidance from above through a Prophet? We can all receive personal revelation for us and our families, but when it comes to matters that God doesn't want there to be any confusion, he calls Prophets. There are so many different interpretations of the Bible with things such as: "Am I saved by grace or works?", "How should I be baptized?", or even "What is the true nature of God?" Instead relying on the many interpretations of the world today we can look to the Lord's chosen Prophet that speaks for God just as Prophets of ancient times have done before. Show more Show less

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

Chad
Being a recently returned missionary I can tell you that when the missionaries come into your home they are there to invite others to come unto Christ. They do not get paid. They actually save up money themselves to go out for 2 years, away from family and friends, to share what they know to be true. The missionaries will share a message, of the gospel of Jesus Christ, that will bless your life. What they share will help answer some of life's most intriguing questions such as: "Where did I come from?", "Why am I here?", and "Where am I going after this life?" Unlike many of the world's views today, the missionaries will share how families can be together, not just for this life, but for eternity. Show more Show less
