Hi I'm Jordan Diaz

I grew up in California. I now live in Utah. I'm a martial art instructor and I love to teach. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a martial art instructor. I own and run a karate dojo in my basement. I was born into the church and have loved it my whole life. I love being around people and I love talking about the gospel to my friends and to people that I meet. I recently received my mission call to the Chile Santiago South Mission. I report to the Chile MTC September 11, 2013. I can not wait to preach and to serve the Chilean people. I love this gospel and I know that my Redeemer lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be. When I was 16 I wanted to know for myself if this church was true. So I went around to other churches, spoke with friends of different faith, and tried to keep an open mind. I wasn't trying to prove the LDS church wrong, but I was trying to prove the gospel of Christ right. I never got the same feeling about the other beliefs as I did about the LDS beliefs. It felt good when I spoke with other friends and went to other churches, but it didn't feel great or whole. I am a Mormon because I have asked God which is the true church of God. He has spoken to me by the Holy Ghost when I've prayed to Him and He has answered to me that the LDS church is the only true church. I know that God lives. I know He has a Son who is Jesus Christ. I know Jesus Christ atoned and died for you and I. God loves me, I am great in His sight. I know Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ in person. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best I can be. I have always been the "leader" in my group of friends and they have noticed things about me that are different. I know this because they have thanked me for being an example. I guess you can say I live by example. By following the gospel of Christ and by keeping His commandments I feel peace and joy and there is no greater feeling. So by leading by example others have chosen to do the same and have realized that is what they truly want to do because of the feeling they get. It's amazing to see that they are truly happy and that is because they can feel the Holy Ghost and they can feel God work in their lives.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jordan Diaz
Mormon missionaries proselyte because God is our Eternally Heavenly Father and we are all His children. He has instructed us as missionaries of the LDS church to go and find our brothers and sisters and help them. We are here to serve you, we are here to comfort you, and we are here to share with you the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are not trying to "throw you a sales pitch." But we are here to share with you the truth about Jesus Christ, and we are here to invite you to come unto Him. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jordan Diaz
The Book of Mormon is another testimony of Jesus Christ. It is another witness. It is an account of how the people came to the Americas. It is an account of their lives and how they came to know Christ and how God worked in their lives. It is also an account of Christ coming to the Americas after His resurrection. It is the word of God. It works hand in hand with the Bible. It is not there to replace the Bible, but to reassure the truthfulness of Christ. It is there to let us know that God lives and His Son, Jesus Christ, is our Redeemer and Savior. "The testimony of two men is true." Both of these testimonies are of Jesus Christ and they come from both The Bible and The Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
