Hi I'm John Meyer

I grew up in Chico California. I am serving a mission in the Micronesia Guam Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and currently serving a mission on Yap Island in the middle of the pacific ocean. I love to play basketball. My family owns seven acres. I love working on the "farm". We had 90 chickens at one point. We got a lot of eggs. I have finished one semester of college. My major is Electrical Engineering. I have started programing computers, and I really enjoy it. My goal for a career is to work for Apple. I would love to be the CEO. There are 5 people in my family. I have a mom and a dad, and older sister and a younger brother. I love my family very very much.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon by my parents. I went to church every Sunday. I loved going to church. Once I got a little bit older, I needed to know if the church was true for myself. I read the Book of Mormon, prayed about it and got an answer from God that it is true. I have been to the Sacred Grove. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Now I am currently serving a mission. I am doing this because I want to bring people closer to Christ. I want to help people feel the joy that I have felt from this gospel.

How I live my faith

Now I am called by a prophet to serve a mission. I am currently serving in the Micronesia Guam Mission. Before I was called to serve a mission, I was teaching young men ages 12 to 14 years old. About every other Sunday I would prepare a lesson to teach those young men. On Wednesday, I would help those same young men with Scouting events. We planned campouts and did many merit badges. I wanted to help these young men become and Eagle Scout because I know how much being an Eagle Scout has helped me. I really enjoyed doing that. I also would vist around seven families once a month with my dad. We would go to these families house and share a message about Christ and what he has done for us. My dad and I had many opportunites to serve these families. I love to serve them!!
