Hi I'm Christopher

I grew up in Utah. I am serving a full time mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a full-time mission in the Nebraska Omaha Mission (N.O.M). I attended a year of college before I left on my mission and plan on going back when I return. I love watching sports, NBA is the best. I am the youngest in my family. I have grown up a member of this church and it was a chore growing up but I have come to love it and wouldnt trade it for anything because of the truthfulness of the message I have come to know.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I grew up in the church doesn't mean I don't have a conversion story. Everyone has a conversion story. I always went to church because it is what my parents asked of me. But the time came for me that I needed to decide for myself if what I had learned all my life up to this point was really true. So I took Moroni's challenge in the Book of Mormon (Moroni 10:3-5) and got down on my knees and asked Heavenly Father if what I had been taught was true and if I need to continue to pursue this course. I can't say I received a miraculous vision, or had a voice come to me, but the feelings I got were amazing. They were of peace and comfort and love. Then I got to thinking, all these people around me who are members, they are so happy. There is no way these people could be so happy in this Gospel if this was not true. I was able to receive my answer through the feelings of the Holy Ghost and the examples of those around me. This church is true without a doubt, my testimony is not of mans, it is of God. He testified to me through the Holy Ghost that this is his true church restored once again to this earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it with others. I have been called to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am giving 2 years of my life to the Lord to go out and preach his gospel. Christs church has always been a missionary church. When Prophets were on the earth in the old testament to Christ and his Apostles in the New Testament to now when we have Prophets once again. There have always been missionaries and it's an amazing thing. Jesus Christ wants his gospel to be heard in all the world. So he calls worthy young men and women to do so.

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

Christopher
Yes I really do believe there is. If God loved his children enough to give them a prophet back in the Old Testament, why couldnt he now? He could, and he has. Thomas S. Monson is that prophet God has called today. He leads and guides Christs church here on the earth, but Chirst is the center of our church. Thomas S. Monson is just a man, just like Moses, but they are called of God. Called to lead and guide the church. If we listen to their counsel we will never be led astray. They will teach us what God wants us to know for our time and our trials that we face. It is such a blessing to be able to have these things! Show more Show less
