Hi I'm Christian Giles Parker

I grew up in Molalla, Oregon, I am a sports fanantic, I am a Missionary and T.H.E. Mission is the place to be!

About Me

I love Sports, I have played Basketball since I was the age of 4 and football age 8. I am a huge Blazers fan and a BYU fan. I grew up in a town just outside of Portland, Oregon. I am I served 1 year of a mission in the Texas Houston East Mission, was home for roughly 2 years and came back out to serve my final year in the Texas Lubbock Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

As I grew up I was blessed to be in a family that was extremely active. I relied on the Testimony of my parents for a long time until I finally figured out the truth for myself during High School. As I began to undertsand how important and how stong the Atonement is, it has changed my life and helped me make the choice to go on a Mission. I reported to the MTC on March 6th, 2013 as a young and eager 18 year old boy. And even though I have been out just a short while, my testimony has become 10 times stronger. Service is truly the way to be converted unto the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have gained a personal experince of how true that is. I love the Church and what it has done to make me into who I am today. I know its true and can change lives. This Gospel has made me happier than anything else on this earth. There is nothing that brings more happiness than it.

How I live my faith

By serving diligently in my callings, which is currently the best freaking calling ever! MISSIONARY IN THE TEXAS HOUSTON EAST MISSION. I love it. Nothing in my life compares to it. If I had to pick between sports and a Mission, the choice whould be easy. Mission. and for me, a few years ago, that would have been a difficult choice. But as I began to find Truth and understanding Por medio de oracion y estudio en el Libro de Mormon, todos los dias and trying to find the Kingdom of God first, my life was, and is still, blessed beyond messure. I have come to know that as you do those things that the Lord will truly bless your life. Words cannot express all that the Lord has and will do for me. I am so grateful for this Gospel and I know that as I keep the commandments and endure to the end, I will be able to live in Celetial Glory one day.
