Hi I'm Joshua Jenkins

I'm a Mormon, I play the trumpet and Golf, and I am serving a two year mission in the Columbus, Ohio Mission.

About Me

I am serving a two year mission in the Great Ohio Columbus mission and I left on August 21st 2013. I have enjoyed the opportunity that I have been given to serve those around me and make eternal friendships with those that I have met.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to stay in this faith because I know that it is true, I didn't grow up in a active family and consequently I didn't get baptized until I was 10, and I didn't stay active in the church after that. I started going to church with a family in my ward that I know consider to be my family, and through the experiences that I felt, through the spirit, I have come to know for my self that this is Christs true church again on the earth with Prophets and Apostles leading it.

How I live my faith

I am serving a 2 year mission, and am constantly striving to live a righteous example and help others see the Gospel from the same point of view that I see it in.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Joshua Jenkins
No, serving a mission is our own choice, it is highly encouraged but not required. As a church we believe in free agency, which is what God has givin us in this earth life so that we can make choices and grow in the gospel more. Show more Show less
