Hi I'm John

I am a engineer for an oil refinery. I have family nights on Mondays. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I'm not at work, I like to spend it going out on drives with the family. We like to see new things and try new eating places that we find on the internet. So far camping is not our thing since we prefer the comforts of a roof and walls, but maybe someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church my senior year of high school. I had wanted to learn the Bible that year, but did not know which church to go to do so so I tried to read it myself from the beginning. Several months later, after discovering my miserable progress I thought to myself, "I need help." Little did I know, Heavenly Father would send the Mormon missionaries soon after that. When they came to the door, my intention was to send them on their way, but as I spoke with them, what they said resonated with me and what they taught made sense. God loves his children and wants us to come to know him. He has chosen prophets throughout history to teach his children the way in their days. Each of us can know what they teach is true by asking God in faith. This is one of the unique things in our church. We believe that we can receive personal revelation for our lives daily because God is interested in us. God answered my prayer and he can answer yours.

How I live my faith

In the church, everyone has an opportunity to do something. Every man has the opportunity/responsibility to do something called hometeaching each month. This is where we get the chance to visit members of the congregation in their homes to see how they are doing, get to know them better, and share a Gospel message with our testimony to strengthen each other's resolve to live the Gospel better each day. As said by the Apostle Paul in the 2nd chapter of Ephesians, church-members are "no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;". We truly try to be family at church. We call each other Brother or Sister. There is something special about hometeaching, it's the program that our Father in Heaven has established to watch over members of his church. I always feel happy after hometeaching someone because I have set aside time to do what the Savior did... to focus on others rather than self.
