Hi I'm Jean.

I'm a Gamer. I'm a web broadcaster. I'm an amateur photographer. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

-My name is Jean, pronounced kinda like John, or Sean with a J. I'm 24 years old. I was Born in Veracruz, Mexico. Raised in Houston, TX. I enjoy Video Games, Anime, Professional Gaming, Web Broadcasting, Computers and anything fun. -I am a current Full-Time Missionary serving in the Fort Worth Texas Mission. As of right now *Apr 2012* I am 1 yr & 8 months in. -Back home I was an avid gamer. And when I get back home, I will still be an avid gamer! There really isn't anything else more entertaining than being able to jump into a world and take on a different persona. To take part in an amazing story. To compete with others. To strive towards a goal with friends and strangers. To have power you would never have otherwise. And more than anything to have fun and enjoy the design, story, and mechanics someone else took time to created for you to enjoy. Especially with friends. -Here on the mission I have found a slight passion for photography. There are tons and tons of moments that pass us by that will never be thought of again without a picture to remind us of those moments. And each and every picture is absolutely unique. You can never truly replace a picture once its gone. -I web broadcasted allot of my gaming sessions with a good buddy of mine and I plan to continue that hobby when I get home. Many moments get captured that are great to share with others and great to remember. -I am also a College Student, studying Japanese, and possibly majoring in Psychology or Game Design.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up LDS. But through out that entire time of growing and learning I never really understood what this gospel was truly about. I knew that people received blessing for being good. That you should always try to be good. You shouldn't hurt others etc etc. But I never really saw those blessings. I never really payed attention to the good around me. I guess I took for granted what I had. For a while I just went to church just to be a body there. Not ever truly paying attention or really caring what was going on. But then after high school and during college I started to feel like something was really missing from my life. I couldn't really figure out what though. Many times I had friends ask me if I ever planned to go on a mission. I would always answer "I don't know." or "Not at all". Never a yes. Then one day a friend of mine, someone that I compared myself to a little, same age as me, never had plans to go on a mission either but was doing great. He decided to go on a mission all of a sudden. It made me think "Why?". Soon after I remember going out with the missionaries back at home as an attempt to find out why. And I could see that there were many people actually willing to listen to the gospel. That their lives were actually changing because of the gospel. Someone the same age as me listening to the missionaries because he wanted to turn his life around and be closer to our Heavenly Father. And it struck me that this person. If I had never known the gospel. Could have been me at that very moment. I could have many more problems in my life if I didn't have the gospel. I started to see all the blessings that I had my entire life, but never really realized I had. So now I'm out here, bringing this gospel so that others may have the chance to have the same blessings that I had my entire life..  

How I live my faith

Right now I am a Full-Time Missionary. Back at home I had the privilege of leading a bunch of great people ages 18-30 in my ward. All I really did was find stuff to do with everyone but it was nice to be able to hang out and have fun with other people that have had the same experiences in life as me as well as the same beliefs.

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

In the recent disaster in Japan, the Church has donated more than 180 tons of supplies including food, water, blankets, bedding, hygiene kits, clothing, and fuel. The Church has also been the first to help in many other disasters around the world.   Show more Show less
