Hi I'm Daniel

I'm a cellist. I play volleyball. I speak Tagalog. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Daniel Johnstun. I'm 20 years old. For most of my life, I have enjoyed playing the cello. My favorite sport is volleyball. I aspired to one day create and own a software development company. I am currently serving a mission in the Philippines Cauayan Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member since I was a child, but that doesn't mean I was forced into this. I always had questions, concerns, and doubts, and I had to figure out for myself if this was the true church of Jesus Christ, just like every other member. As I was reading The Book of Mormon one day, I received a confirmation from our Heavenly Father that the words and the book I was reading are true and that God wanted me to follow it's teachings. As I share the gospel here in The Philippines, people challenge my beliefs often. They raise questions that I've never heard or had before, but through the study of the scriptures, my testimony is confirmed that Jesus is the Christ, the gospel was lost and restored through living prophets, God has a plan for us, and we will be blessed in our lives and in the life to come if we will live the gospel of Jesus Christ and follow the commandments as taught in the holy scriptures and by the living prophets.

How I live my faith

Currently I am living in the Philippines sharing my beliefs with others every day. I live my faith by constantly looking for ways to improve myself and bring my actions in-line with God's will. I study the scriptures every day and do my best to live by their teachings. I try to be a kind and loving person to all those around me.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

When the prophet dies, the remaining 12 apostles and the prophet's 1st and 2nd counselors pray to know who our Heavenly Father has chosen to be the next prophet. Show more Show less
