Hi I'm James

I grew up in Washing State not D.C. I went to high school and now going on my mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy camping, hiking, biking any outdoor activities. I'm about to go on my mission; i'll be serving in Georgia. I plan on going to college when I get back from my mission. I'll go to college through a military program either Navy or Air force. Id like to fly helicopters as a career.

Why I am a Mormon

I went to church as a kid mainly because my Mother made me. As I grew older and was preparing for a mission I realized I didn't have much of a testimony. I decided I needed to discover for myself what I knew to be true. That came through reading and praying about The Book of Mormon. As I read and studied and continually prayed I learned for myself the Truthfulness of The Book of Mormon. I already believed in the Bible and in Christ. But as I read and prayed my knowledge and my love for the Savior grew and I knew it to be true. The Love I felt and the Joy I have is what I want others to experiences. I'm a Mormon because I know this to be the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I'm living my faith by going on my mission and at home talking to friends and strangers about the gospel and the church. I often get asked about the church at my work. which leads to long conversations about the church and what i do in the church. My calling right now is to be a missionary. I also home teach a few inactive family's. Which my companion and I are trying to get them more active in the Church. We also home teach a widow who is just one of the great people i know. Even with all the problems and test she has had in her life her faith re-manes strong.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries have a lot of things they can teach you about the gospel, there's always something new to learn. The basic things they'll share is about Christ's atonement, the plan of salvation, our church's believes, and about the Book of Mormon and the Prophet Joseph Smith and our modern day prophets.
