Hi I'm Jon

I grew up in Syracuse Utah, I am a Missionary, an Outdoorsman, an Adventurer, a Bookworm and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a full time missionary in the Washington Kennewick mission. When I am not a missionary I love reading, Especially Tolkien, hiking, camping, backpacking, going on adventures, reading books, building things, watching movies, listening to and telling stories (I love stories), getting to know people, giving service, growing in my knowledge of the gospel, and increasing my skills and knowledge in as many things as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is true, I tell people every day, I invite them to do the same thing that I did, Read the scriptures and pray to know of its truth. God will tell you nothing but the truth, so why not trust God? I know that God is there, and that He loves each and every one of us, sometimes He allows us to go through trials in order to strengthen us. Sometimes He builds us up to help others, but in all things, God does so because He loves us and He knows better than we do, for His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. The Church is true, Joseph Smith was a prophet, and the Book of Mormon is the word of God, I learn from it each and every day. I love this church, and I love the people I serve.

How I live my faith

I have been an active member in the Boy Scouts, having worked for four years at camps in Wyoming, and California, I love service. I love working with people of the church, It is so great to learn from them, as I have said before I love stories, so I am always glad to work alongside a man with stories to tell, I love home teaching, because you get to know people and learn their story. I love service, because I know how closely it can bring people together, if you want to love someone, serve them, serve with them. I love service so much, that I have given two years of my life to the whole act. I love the people I serve, It is such a wonderful thing to feel an amazing love for people you met just a few days ago, and it is truly wonderful to see the gospel bless these peoples lives.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

As members of Christ's true church we have received many blessings from the gospel and the church. Because of this, we desire to share this wonderful joy with as many people as possible. Many people have misconceptions or questions about the church, If you have a question, please contact the missionaries and ask them. Missionaries love questions. Show more Show less
