Hi I'm Christopher

I grew up in Colorado, i love to go snowmobiling, I am serving a mission in Missouri and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. I am one of those guys you see riding around on the bikes with the black name tags. I was studying bussiness before at college and i hope to either open up my own bakery or my own restaraunt.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have always lived it but i never really started to believe it until i was diagnosed with a degenerative back disease. I found me self in constant pain and i started to become angry at everyone and the world. But i was on a trip with the church and i found one morning i couldnt stand up. The leader of the group gave me a blessing of healing and comfort and i was able to get up and to remember that my father in heaven is there and he loves me. Now i wasnt permantly healed but i was strengthened and i was shown that i need to remember my faith. Remeber the faith that i showed in that blessing as i had no one to turn to for help. My Father in Heaven loves me and he looks after me and even when i had turned away from him. He humbled me and reminded me that he was there for me.

How I live my faith

For the next two years of my life i will live away from my family as Missionairy. I have been called to serve in the state of Missouri to help other hear the message that I know is true. I go and do service everyweek to help those of all faiths that are in need of a helping hand and tell them of our father in heaven and how He can help them in their lives. Before going on a mission i helped in the youth of the ward by being a leader in one of the youth groups and helping the boys prepare for the future and understand their Father in Heaven.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood if the authority to do the will of God in his name. It allows worthy men to bless the sick, lead church meetings and perform the ordinances of the church. It is a sacred oportunity that i am so grateful to have, it allows me to bless my family and those around me who are in need of help that i can offer through the power and authority of God.
