Hi I'm Jack

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for my whole life! I recently returned from serving a full time mission in Sydney Australia and now I work and attend school. I enjoy lots of different sports, socializing and serving others. I like to meet new people and learn lots of new, exciting stuff about them. I love to see people around me be happy so I like to tell lots of jokes and serve others as much as I can and in ways meaningful to them. I delight in being mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Many people think this means that my parents are the reason that I'm a member. Although this is somewhat true I like to let everyone know that I have a strong, personal belief that Jesus Christ has restored his true, original church to the earth and this church is the Latter Day Saint Church. I have asked God in prayer if the doctrines taught in this church are true and He has told me through his Holy Spirit that they are, and that the teachings of this church are the best way for me to live a happy life and return to live with Him when I die. This knowledge is what gets me through all of the opposition I face and have faced, I know by the power of the Holy Spirit that this church is governed by Jesus Christ himself through revelation to a living prophet.

How I live my faith

I recently returned from serving a full time mission in Sydney, Australia, where I shared my personal conviction of the Saviour with others, performed service, and taught the doctrines of the gospel. Now that I am home I try to live my faith by seeking to constantly improve my obedience to God's commandments by actively studying the scriptures, praying and being taught by others; this helps me to identify anything that I do that is not what God wants me to do and then correct these mistakes through repentance. I also help out the full time missionaries in my area with anything that they need and try to uplift, serve and compliment others when I can. I also love to attend the temple, where I feel close to God and receive the guidance I need to overcome my day to day challenges.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jack
Having been a missionary before I will use my own motivations that I had for sharing the proselyting, or sharing my beliefs with others. I want those around me to be happy, and I know that keeping God's commandments make me happy so I invited others to learn about them so they could share in my happiness. The Saviour also commanded us to share what we learn about Him in the bible (matt 28:19). Show more Show less
