Hi I'm Geoff Francis

I'm a Californian, a BYU student, an Arizona Tempe Missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Since I was 8 years old I have lived in Del Mar California. Growing up near the ocean, I learned to greatly love the beach and swimming. Later on in life this developed into a love to surf and play water polo. After high school I moved to Provo, Utah where I attended a year of schooling at Brigham Young University. I am now currently serving in the Arizona Tempe Mission where I love to teach people about what I have come to know to be true.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being Mormon and know that this is the Lord's gospel. After much prayer, I have come to know that this church is true. It is the church that I want to raise my future family in. Its teachings inspire love and happiness. I know that the gospel was restored to this earth and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that we have modern day prophets to give us guidance and revelation. This is a gospel of forgiveness and true joy and I am so thankful to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

I love my faith. It is a large part of who I am. The people I grew up with in my ward and stake helped me to become the person I am today. I served in many leadership positions and was heavily involved in Young Mens and the youth programs. Over many years I have developed my own testimony of the truthfulness of this church and its teachings. That testimony has led me to the decision to serve a full 2 year mission to preach this gospel. I am currently serving in the Arizona Tempe Mission and love seeing the joy in other people's eyes as I tell them that their families can be together forever.

Are Mormons Christians?

Geoff Francis
Mormons are in fact Christians. Our actual name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Book of Mormon references Jesus Christ over 3000 times in its 531 pages. We believe in Jesus Christ and his atoning sacrifice. Show more Show less
