Hi I'm Chad

I'm Jamaican, a happy husband, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was originally born in Jamaica, and no I can't speak the dialect. I'm currently serving a 2 year mission in North Carolina and by far the best experience in the world. Early in my life I realized I had a talent and a passion for art. It's helped me to express myself in ways that I can't with words. I love playing basketball because it pushes me to think, analyze and act quickly, and is just down right fun to play.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was young. Growing up they instilled in me great values and taught me how to live a good life. When I was a teenager I had some experiences that made me want to reach out to God; my parents got divorced and I had a sister pass away sometime after that. I got discouraged and thought my life would be meaningless. Then, through an invitation from local missionaries, I started to read the Book of Mormon everyday and would pray to ask God that it was true. Overtime I saw the blessings that came into my life from living the teachings found in the Book of Mormon about Christ. I had a witness from the Holy Ghost that it was true. It wasn't a spectacular display, but it was the most peaceful and assuring feeling I have ever had in my life. I yearned for that feeling and I found it! That assuring witness has led me to follow the Savior, and to understand what my Heavenly Father wants me to do in this life. Since then my testimony has strengthened through service and through experiences. I know this is His Church restored to the earth!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in about everything I do. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a way of life, not just a "Sunday thing". Currently I'm serving as a missionary teaching people about Jesus Christ and rendering service to others. Before I served a two-year mission, I had the opportunity in working with the youth in my hometown. As I look forward in life, my faith will affect every area of my life whether it be the career I choose, the kind of family I have, the activities I will participate in and so forth.
