Hi I'm Craig

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Arizona. Right now I am serving as a missionary in Chiapas, Mexico.

About Me

I like playing sports such as basketball and volleyball. Right now I am serving a mission but when i return i would like to study business and maybe be a dentist. I love being with family and doing simple things such as playing board games or just hanging out together. I also love scuba diving and was certified when i was 10 years old. I also like snowboarding, paintballing, and ocasionally video games.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know this is His true church. Yes, i was brought into the church by my parents who were members but everyone has to find out for themselves if this is true or not. When i was 13 years old i asked our Heavenly Father if it was true in a simple prayer, kneeling alone in my room, and He answered me. Not by lighting or by some great sign but by a warm-comforting feeling in my heart and since that day i have known it was true. However, in my mission my testimony has only grown, everyday i am faced with questions of the church and it only fortifies my testimony. I am grateful for each day i have to share the gospel because i know of the many blessings my Fathe in Heaven has given me.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary in the Chiapas, Mexico mission. Everyday we study from 8 in the morning until 11 and then we leave to teach and share the gospel until 9 or 9:30 at night. Its such a blessing to be a missionary and to testify of Christ. The people that apply the gospel to themselves and their familes reap the blessings. I have seen so many lives change by following the teachings of Christ. As of right now this is my work, to help all to come unto Christ.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mormon missionaries proselyte to bless the lives of others. They bring the teachings of Christ to the doorstep so that every person can know of the love of our Savior who willing suffered and died for each one of us. Our Savior loves us so much that he has restored His church in our day. The missionaries proselyte so that everyone who listens, has the opportunity to pray and ask God if it is true, if this is His church. They are young men and women who have seen the blessings of the gospel in their lives and want others to experience it also. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

If we want to come to know our Heavenly Father and know that He lives and loves us, all we have to do is pray to Him. Tell Him how your day went, what problems you had and the good things that happened to you. Tell Him how grateful you are for your family, friends, home, and many other blessings that He has given you. Most important of all, tell Him that you love Him and you will feel the soft, warm feelings that He sends us so that we know He cares. I promise all who have the desire to know Him that they will come to know Him. He loves you, He loves me, He loves us all because He is our Father who is in Heaven. Show more Show less
