Hi I'm Garrett vonk

i am a football player a rugby player, a missionary for my church, the coolest person ever but most importantly I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i am from a small town in florda. i moved to utah when i was 16 and went to school there. i love the mountains and rock climbing snow boarding, surfing, rugby,football and anything that involves being outside.sports are a huge part of my life. oh and i am awesome :)

Why I am a Mormon

i was born into the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. but like any religion there comes a time when you start to question if what you have been raised and taught your whole life is true or are you just in the church because of your family. i started having doubts and questions in the church and i really wanted to know if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is indeed God's kingdom restored on the earth or just another religion. so i did what anyone does when they have questions or concerns and has no where to go... i prayed to my Father in heaven to ask what i should do and if the church was indeed where i needed to be. that is when the Holy Ghost comforted me and i know without a doubt in my mind that God has restored his gospel and his church and that church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. i also know that if you truly want to know as i did that if this church is Christ's church or just another religion, you can pray to our Heavenly Father and He will comfort you and let you know the truth.

How I live my faith

after knowing the truth of my religion i knew that i had to tell people the happiness i felt and the love of our heavenly father. so I prayed and decided to come on a mormon mission. to serve god and the people of Anaheim California. I talk with everyone and don't let anyone get away from hearing the message I have to share. I help the community by providing service each week, and I teach people I meet about our loving Heavenly Father and His plan for us. I'm here for 2 years and it is the best 2 years of my life even though i look riddiculous in a white button up shirt and tie every day and on a bike talking to people i dont even know and i know i am doing God's will. i love being a missionary and serving my fellow man
