Hi I'm Josh

I was born and raised in the Church. I am now serving a mission in the Mexico Monterrey West Mission.

About Me

I graduated from one of the largest high schools in the US, and attended Southern Virginia University for a year before submitting my papers to be accepted as a full time missionary. I know live in Mexico, where I work every day to help people and to bring them the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family who were strongly in this faith, but I took it upon myself to decide if I should stay in the LDS church. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it, receiving confirmation that it was true. I was baptized and confirmed a member of this Church shortly after. To me, I am a Mormon because I know that it is the true church and I want to be obedient to my Heavenly Father, so I follow his Son Jesus Christ and His Church.

How I live my faith

Presently, I am in Mexico teaching others about my faith, as a missionary. I study the scriptures daily, pray often to my Father in Heaven, and try to help people all that I can.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Josh
As missionaries, we want to share this Gospel to everyone who will accept it. Have you ever had an experience that you just had to share with someone? It is much like that. We want everyone to have the opportunity to hear the message of forgiveness and pure joy that Christ brought to the world. We follow the admonition of Christ in Matthew 28:19 and are trying to teach all nations. We are not trying to make you change everything about you, but simply want to help you to have the joy that we have found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our message is not scary or very unusual, but based on the Holy Scriptures, written by the prophets of God. It is a message of joy and families. We want to help you in any way that we can. That is why us Mormon missionaries proselyte. Show more Show less
