Hi I'm Judd Wagstaff

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Judd Wagstaff, I am 19 years old. I have 2 brothers and 3 sisters. I am number 3. I am currently serving a mission in Indonesia. My family is still back at home in Holladay, Utah.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints since I was a child. I have always known that this is the true church. Since I was a little child, I have always seen the amazing effects of the teachings of this gospel on other people. My parents were and still are the perfect example of living the teachings that are found in this church. And from their example, I saw all the blessings that came from living in harmony with Christ's teachings. I always went to church with my family every Sunday. I had a simple testimony that this church was true because it felt good and every one that I looked up to, was a member of this church. When I got into high school I started thinking for myself, I never doubted it was true but I wanted to make sure. In this church every young man at the age of 19 has the choice to serve a mission. I always wanted to do this. But before I left my family for 2 years, I had to be strongly assured that this was the true church. So I began to read the Book of Mormon. From that decision, I know without doubt that this church is true. I know that Joseph Smith was chosen By our loving Heavenly Father to restore the gospel that Jesus Christ had once taught. I love the Book of Mormon. I cant explain in words how much that book has helped me in my life. From the smallest problems to the biggest, I always found answers in that book. I feel Heavenly Fathers love for me every time I read that book. I know that whoever reads the Book of Mormon and asks our Heavenly Father if it is true, they will get an assurance of its truthfulness. This restored gospel has blessed mine and my families life in every way. I love this gospel. ( I have been speaking Indonesian for a year, sorry if my English is retchid now.)

How I live my faith

Because I know it is true, I am currently in Indonesia with the purpose to help others to know about this beautiful news of the restored gospel. I left my family for 2 years so I can help others come to know about this gospel. I love my family more than anything. I wouldn't do such a thing unless I really knew it was true and for a good purpose. There is nothing better than sharing this amazing blessing with others! If any one out there comes across my blog and has questions or concerns about our church. Please ask! I know that the teachings found in the restored gospel will bless your life in every way.
