Hi I'm Chris

I'm from Pleasant Grove Utah, I'm serving a mission in South Carolina Columbia Mission, now I'm part of the Georgia Macon Mission

About Me

I'm currently serving the South Carolina Columbia Mission. It's the best mission in South but that's just pure opinion not doctrine. I played lacrosse for my high school and getting to go east coast is like a dream come true. I am planning on attending Utah State and get a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I'm an overly huge fan of the Avengers and Ironman. It's partially the reason for my career choice. God always comes first though. Never forget that.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing more true in my mind the gospel of LDS church. I'm a mormon because I know it's true and it's worth every hardship or ridicule. I don't want to ever miss out and any single one of the opportunities that get by being a mormon. I so grateful that I get to serve a mission and teach gods children.

How I live my faith

When I first entered the singles ward for the first time I was called to be a sunday school teacher. This was a big surprise but I accept and tried to do my calling as best I could. Turned to be something that I love and teaching came really easy to me. I enjoy my callings and try to be an example to my friends who don't believe in the same teachings of the gospel or even the gospel in general.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Chris
Christ's church that he established on the earth during his mortal ministry was perfect. To use a metaphor it would be the perfect car. Best gas mileage, best traction, and the fastest thing out there. When Christ and his apostles died it would be as if the driver got into a crash and died the keys to the vechicle were lost with the accident. Years later the pieces to car were taken to form other cars which no matter how hard they tried it wouldn't be as good as the orginal. Another car like it could not be found on the earth. They couldn't drive the orginal car either because the keys to car were lost. It would take a restoration of the keys and essential parts of the car that were lost in order to drive the car. No one but the orginal manufacturer or builder of the car could provide the essentials for such a project. It's not to say that the other cars weren't good. They ran fine and had some essential parts of the orginal. They just didn't have it all. A restoration was needed for the Christ's Church for just the same reason as it would a car. It's not a new car, it's a restored car. Show more Show less
