Hi I'm Christian

I served a mission in Brazil. I'm from Utah. And, yes... I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to play sports and games with friends. Being outdoors always thrills and excites me. Where better to explore than outdoors? I am currently serving my mission in Colorado and am awaiting my Visa to Brazil where I will finish the remainder of my mission. I can speak Portuguese fairly decently. I'm still working on it though (Thank you Missionary Training Center!). I have four sisters and I am the only boy in my family. I'm the oldest and so I'm the first of my family to leave on a mission. I love to meet new people and spend time with friends. Trying new things makes life exciting! I like to look at myself as fairly open-minded. Not too mention who doesn't like the best in things? The day is always better when you look at everything in a positive light. I like to say I try my hardest at that. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true because it has given me an answer to all of my questions. The Book of Mormon translation process was truly amazing. Through the power of God Joseph Smith translated the plates into what we know now as the Book of Mormon. This book is a second testament of Jesus Christ as he ministered and established his church in the Americas. I will continue to follow His gospel because I know with a certainty that He lives and teaches and directs us through modern prophets, apostles, seers and revelators. This church is perfect because it's directed by Jesus Christ himself. Isn't His plan so marvelous? :D

How I live my faith

Well as of now, I'm serving my mission, so what better way to show one's faith in Christ than by spending 2 years of dedicated service to Him and others? I am so grateful for my calling as a missionary. It bring such happiness to me in my life when I'm sharing what makes me most happy. The gospel of Jesus Christ is truly the way for us all to be happy in this life. When we do all that is possible to follow the example of Jesus Christ we show that we are indeed disciples of Him. Some of the ways I show my love and discipleship to Him is by providing service to others in the community. Helping people gives me such joy! How wondrous is it when someone gives me thanks and a smile for even the simplest acts of service.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Within the church there has been a long-lasting tradition of missionary service. What better way to show our love for others than by serving them? Missionaries dedicate 18 months to 2 years to the service of others around the world. The most important way that missionaries serve others is by the message that they share. This message is that the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and the Church of Jesus Christ is now once again on the Earth to never be removed.
