Hi I'm Chris

I'm a collge student, an airsofter, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 20 year-old from Colorado. I'm the youngest of 5 kids. Right now I'm serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Los Angeles. Before my mission I studied linguistics at Brigham Young University (GO COUGS!). I'll be going back after my mission too. I love to learn languages and just learn in general. Growing up in Colorado, I've always loved being outside. I love to hike and camp. I'm an airsofter and also scuba diver.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I always grew up learning what the church was about, but I really ran on auto-pilot for most of my life. When I got older (high school-ish) I started to wonder about what I REALLY believed. As I searched the scriptures, prayed and got more involved with the Church I started to realize for myself that the things I had learned as a kid were real. Those things made me so happy that I felt like nothing could bring me down. The peace and joy that comes from the Chrurch and the teachings of Jesus Christ have made a real difference in my life.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm at the beginning of a 2 year mission where I'm going to go and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the joy it brings me with the people of Los Angeles, California. The joy and peace that I talked about right up there ^ have made such a difference in my life that I want to share it with others. I was a sunday school teacher at school where I taught about the New Testament and the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Are Mormons Christians?

Chris
Yes indeed! The name of our chruch is: The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. That he came to the earth to teach His gospel, establish His church, and eventually, suffer and die to that we can be forgiven of our sins and return to live with God, our Heavenly Father. We belive that through Christ, we can overcome all challenges we encounter in our lives. Show more Show less
