Hi I'm Jeremy

I grew up in Corvallis, Oregon. I am currently serving a mission in the Canada Toronto Mission speaking Chinese and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the first born child of four in my family. I enjoy playing most sports, especially Tennis. I was a member of my High School Varsity Tennis team all four years and now just enjoy playing for fun. I really enjoy playing the guitar and the piano as well as singing. I am a member of an Acapella group at BYU called Familiar Ring. When I am with my friends we usually play games, "jam" on the guitar, and eat! I am loving serving as a missionary for the church in Toronto! The people here are amazing and I love to meet new people! Chinese is the best language ever! I love learning the language and learning more about the Chinese culture while helping the Chinese people here learn more about the church and the effect that it can have in their lives!

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up in the church by my parents and it has been such a blessing in my life. I love the blessing of happiness that this Gospel brings to my life. Sometimes I take for granted the amazing opportunity it is to live the gospel but when I think about it, it really blesses my life everyday. When I was at BYU last year I really began to notice the wonderful atmosphere that a group of Latter-Day Saint youth can generate. I am so grateful to be a part of that great place. Everywhere you go there are bright and happy people greeting you with a smile or a quick "hello!" The gospel just spreads happiness into the world and that is why I love being a part of it. I also love the opportunity that I have to spread it throughout the world, specifically in Canada. It is so cool to see people change their lives and learn of the love that their Father in Heaven has for them. It is one of the most sacred experiences to be here on a mission and I hope to continue to bless the lives of others throughout my life as a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I have served many callings throughout my life but none compare to serving as a full-time missionary! There are so many ways that I have changed out here in Canada. The most drastic is the conversion to this Gospel that has taken place in my life. I love serving the people of Toronto and helping them understand the love that God has for them! It is such a blessing to be here teaching people about this Gospel which has helped me so much in my own life! There are many different reasons why I am out here on a mission but the most significant is that I want others to enjoy this incredible blessing of the Gospel and to learn to live their lives in accordance with the laws and commandments of our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ.
