Hi I'm Connor Whittington

I grew up in Chicago. I play tennis and ping-pong. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in central Utah, but grew up in a suburb of Chicago. I am studying to be an actuary, but am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Texas McAllen Mission (best mission in the world). I enjoy playing sports, namely basketball, tennis, and ping-pong. I also play the piano and percussion.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to church, and it always made sense. There did come a time though that I couldn't just trust my family or friends, and needed to know for myself that this church is true and that this truly is the gospel of Jesus Christ in its fullness. My answer didn't come from one powerful experience, but has come from the small daily reassurances from the Holy Ghost. There is also no way that I can deny that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, for I have read it multiple times and know that it could not have been written by a young man with almost no education. The Book of Mormon is the word of God and brings everyone closer to Christ as they read it. I have seen the gospel bless my life, the life of my family, and also the lives of the people I teach as a missionary.

How I live my faith

As a full-time missionary, I have the opportunity to devote 2 years to serve God and to serve the people here in south Texas. It is amazing to see the joy and happiness that comes into people's lives as they learn and accept the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
