Hi I'm Chris West

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I worked as a Mining Engineer at the Bingham Canyon Copper Mine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a lovely wife, three children and five grandchildren. I like astronomy. My wife wonders why I need three telescopes. I have served as a Boy Scout leader for about twenty-five years. I enjoy hiking and camping and encouraging the young men to be the best they can be.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the Mormon faith and served a two-year mission in Mexico when I was younger. I love the Savior and try in my imperfect ways to follow His example in treating others with kindness and in serving my family and neighbors. I feel His guiding hand in my life and I have faith that I can return and live with Him and my loved ones if I do what is right. I have a testimony through the Holy Spirit that this is His Church and that there is a living prophet on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed helping elderly people in my neighborhood by clearing snow, helping with their yards and visiting them when they are ill. I help the Bishop in our congregation by making appointments for him and keeping records, etc.
