Hi I'm Jonas Pitt

I play piano and love the outdoors.. I'm an aspiring chef, and an avid hunter. I'm serving a mission in Italy, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the youngest of eight in my family, there is a seventeen year difference between me and my oldest sister. I have five sisters iand three brothers. I love my family with all my heart, they are the most important thing to me. I have taken culinary school for two years and am currently working on getting my major in Business. I love the outdoors from camping, to hunting. I have played piano for seven years. And I am currently serving a mission in Italy

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that this is the true church. I would not be serving a mission if I did not believe this. I love this church and the strength it brings to my family and to me personally. The Book of Mormon is a wonderful book and I can't put it down when I start reading, I know that it is the word of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day. I used to be a scout leader and I taught the eleven year old scouts. I love the scouting prgram and how it helped me and how it helps the boys learn more about nature, their community, and their Nation. I live my faith by believing in the words of the prophet and by continually reading the Book of Mormon. Faith is something that you have to believe in, like turning on a light, you have faith it will turn on when you flip the switch. Faith is something that you can't see but you have hope that it is there. I have faith that this church is true, no one can tell me other wise or tell me wrong, because I have the faith that this is true.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Jonas Pitt
No all Mormons are not required to serve a mission, it is a choice. Missionaries generally go on missions when they are 19 to 21 years old, the prophets have asked that every worthy young male should serve a mission yes, but not all Mormons are required to serve a mission. Many retired seniors, men, women, and married couples choose to serve a mission if they feel like it is the right time for them to do so, but it is not required for any of them to serve a mission. To show that it is a voluntary act, missionaries do not get payed for serving a mission. Show more Show less
