Hi I'm Andrew Capps

I'm 21 years old, I have five younger siblings and I'm a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I'm a high school graduate, I received my GED January 19th 2013. I enjoy reading, learning about computers in every way possible, and doing my best to help others. My college major, when I get off my mission, is going to be computer science. I hope to find a career somewhere in information security. My siblings are all younger than me, and my parents have been married for 22 years, as of may 2015.

Why I am a Mormon

I was Born into the church, my parents were raised in it as well, this does not mean that I am a blind follower. when i was fifteen almost sixteen i began to seriously doubt whether or not this was the true faith I had been told it was. I began to question everything I was told and everyone who was a member of the church, I even questioned God through prayer. the only thing I knew for certain is that God does answer prayers, the Holy Ghost is real. My question was this, "is there truth in the Book of Mormon?". my answer didn't come with great rolling thunder and choruses of angels, I didn't see anyone. It came during a fast and testimony meeting when I got up to bear my testimony and just as i was about to say "I believe" instead the words were "I know", I hadn't planned to say that and I don't know why I did, but, the moment I said those two words I knew that I was right, The Holy Ghost testified to me that this is the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth.

How I live my faith

Every morning for all four years of high school I've been getting up at 5:30 AM to attend seminary. seminary is a scripture study class that all youth attend during their four years of high school. each year we study one of the four standard works. freshman year I studied the Book of Mormon, sophomore year it was Doctrine and Covenants and church History, Junior year it was the Old Testament, and senior year it's the New Testament. I was also the youth leader of the young men age 16-18 and the varsity scout team leader for our ward, and I sit on a monthly committee called BYC (Bishops youth committee) on the third Sunday of the month we gather to discuss all this pertaining to the youth in the ward.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Andrew Capps
When I and My companion visit someone in their home we do our best to express graitude and politeness. Yes, we know our message is true, but, that does not mean that we can expect you know everything that we do. We do our best to establish and move at a pace suitable for each individual person and we teach them the principles and doctrines behind the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Plan of Salvation (also known as The Plan of Happiness), The Gospel of Jesus Christ, The Commandments, and the Laws and Ordinances of the Gospel. We do our best to keep the visits concise and under 45 minutes so that we don't interrupt your normal daily routines. However, we will ask you to make commitments as part of the teaching process, keeping these commitments will help you to learn for yourself whether or not these things are true. Show more Show less
