Hi I'm Jonas

I grew up in Germany. I love IT. And I am a Mormon

About Me

I love computers. Since I was a child I loved to sit and do things with my computer. Often times I even don't know what I did but that didn't played a role for me. When I finished school it was time to decide what to do with my life, so I decided to go deeper into my hobby. I left my home and moved into a flat on my own, 2 hours away from where I grew up. There i visited a college to learn Software Development. This really helped me to get a view on what IT is all about. But still, the free time was filled up with gaming. Most of the time I played with my old friends from home online and in the holly days they came over into my tiny flat and spend as much time together as we could. My friends are really important for me. I knew them all my life and I can not imagine it without them. After I finished the college I went to the army. The army was something I choose as possible future, so I decided to look into it deeper and voluntary for a year to see what it is. It gave me a lot of experiences and different views on things I didn't realized before, but after the service for my country I decided to go and serve the Lord as a full-time missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up in this church, but everyone had a point in his life where he start to think, what it is all about. For me came the time when I left my home and started to live a life on my own. I was blessed with family friends in the town where i lived who supported me and became like another family to me. The church building was only a few minutes from my flat, so that I could walk every Sunday to church meetings. Going to the army showed me, how the life of people was, who didn't belong to the church. I still lived my life as I was supposed to do but I start thinking about if it was really true what my parents taught me my whole life. Finally it came the time when my Military service ended and I had to decided what to do next. I decided that it would be the best to follow my feelings to serve a mission. This time in my life did changed my view on the world. I never really reached out in my life and I never thought about what other people belief in and what they think. Coming to England changed that and I realized how blessed I was with the gospel. This time was the first time in my life where i personally experienced what it really meant to live according to the teachings of the Savior. I started to change. The world around me started to change. I am so great full to know that Jesus Christ is my savior. Through him I could change my life to live according to the divine advises of God. I know the Church of Jesus Christ was restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith because i ask God, in the name of Christ and received an answer. This means so much to me and I hope that I can help people to come unto Christ and receive this joy.

How I live my faith

In my ward I was working with the young man. There age reached from 12-15. Also when they sometimes gave me a hard time I enjoyed working with them. I was myself just 18 and because of that I could relate to a lot of situations, where the older man could not really see a point. This gave me a lot of experience and the boys are very close to my heart. I was lucky to had this responsibility together with my childhood friend. Together we help this boys to see live from a different perspective and helped them understand the important's planning ahead and see the consequences for there actions. We had a lot of fun together but as well spiritual experiences.
