Hi I'm Jeff

I grew up in Chicago. I'm a Missionary. I love basketball, music, life and my Savior. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 20 year old missionary serving in Dallas, Texas. I love serving the Lord. I love to play basketball and volleyball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Jesus Christ's Church restored to the Earth. I know that Jesus Christ himself leads and guides his church through modern-day prophets. I have come to this knowledge by reading The Book of Mormon and receiving an answer from God that the The Book of Mormon is Holy Scripture given to us by him. Because I know the Book of Mormon is true, I know that Joseph Smith translated The Book of Mormon through the power of God, thus being a Prophet of God. I know that Jesus Christ used Joseph Smith as an instrument to establish his church in the fullness once again to the earth. Through Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ restored his Priesthood Authority, or the power of God, to the earth. This authority is necessary to perform the saving ordinances such as Baptism, Confirmation of the Holy Ghost and many others. I am a Mormon because I have been baptized by that restored authority of God. I am extremely grateful for the blessing it is to be a member of the Lord's church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the example of my savior Jesus Christ. I try to live in a way so that other people will recognize that I am a servant of Jesus Christ. I try to follow the commandments, and although I am not perfect, I do my best.
