Hi I'm Josh

I'm from Arlington, Texas. I'm serving as a full-time missionary in the Washington Everett Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Before my mission, I played football in college out in California and loved to watch movies!! I'm currently serving as a missionary in (South) Lake Stevens, Washington. My companion, Elder Shaver, and I are on bikes, and we love to teach people about the gospel of Jesus Christ :)

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but never really started to "BUY-IN" until I moved away from home. When you're away from your parents, you really start to question who you want to be, and I'm so very thankful for all the positive and righteous examples that the Lord placed in my path!! Now I know the church is true for myself, that I am a child of our loving Heavenly Father, and that our Savior, Jesus Christ, paid the ultimate sacrifice for us so that we could return and live with Them and our families forever :)

How I live my faith

As a missionary, we devote our time to serving the Lord by bringing people closer to Christ. We pray all the time!!! We study the scriptures and other helpful missionary tools for a few hours in the morning, then go out in our area and try to teach people and invite them to come closer to Christ by coming to church, being baptized, living a commandment, etc. We always look for opportunities to serve our brothers and sisters by helping them paint their house, cut their grass, or move their furniture (We're like part-time movers!!). I live my faith by trying to live the commandments the Lord has given me and the extra "temporary" commandments I have as a missionary. Obedience brings blessings!!
