Hi I'm Johans

I'm From Guatemala. I love playing sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I am currently serving as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints. I love playing sports, lifting and talking to new people and hearing their stories. I hope by the time I finish my mission, I will be able to get a scholarship for baseball at a good university.

Why I am a Mormon

Well growing up as a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints I have always known the church was true. But sometimes many challenges causes you to doubt that. I use to work at a school as a teachers Aide. One day I was outside with the kids and thought to myself this is a boring job. Out the corner of my eye I saw a young boy run as fast as he could to the soccer field. Just let me say his soccer skills at such a young age were amazing. over the passed few months I got to know him very well, what a good kid. I got some news saying he had passed away due to heart problems, I couldn't believe it. during that time I did not want anything to do with the church, due to a lot of prayers from my family (especially my mom). I came to realize the plan of salvation is true. How did I know? Because the feelings I had were undeniable and indescribable, a feeling of peace,hope and love towards my father in heaven, and those feelings of great joy and true conversion let me know that this is the true church and I am happy for the restored gospel here on earth. And because of that I want the world to know and rejoice as much as I do. I know I will see my friend again, this is true and I cannot deny it. That's why I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints.

How I live my faith

Well before my mission I used to teach the 10 year olds. I am currently serving a mission in Jacksonville Florida. I love to read and liken the scriptures.
