Hi I'm Joel Chaproniere

I'm sporty, I'm a future missionary, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Well about me. I just recently finished school after doing my A-Levels in Sociology, History and Law. This was a grand experience learning about society's growth over the years, and how society is now, also how the laws made affect people. I have recently, well just received my mission call. This is where I will go out leaving my family for two years and I will be teaching people about this church, and offering service. My call is to the Scotland/Ireland Mission which basically covers Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland. I'm quite a normal person, I enjoy playing sports, mostly Football and Rugby, but I'm open to trying new sports aswell. I'm also interested in art, its one of my hobbies, just drawing random things from my imagination. I'm also a typical teenager as I love my bed, my Xbox and Food!! But mostly my bed. Being a Mormon allows me to have a purpose in my life, it gives me strength when I feel low, and I love having opportunities where I can share this amazing gift.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon household, where my mother and father brought my brother and I up teaching us the gospel. I have often questioned for myself and pondered why I am a Mormon and the answer keeps coming back, "Because It's True, that's Why you're a member!!". I have read the Book Of Mormon and took upon myself Moroni's challenge in Moroni 10:3-5 and have asked if it is true and have received the answer that it is, and I extend the same promise as Moroni to everyone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service, and going on a mission for me is a great act of service. Whilst still preparing to go on my mission, I still have chances to serve those who live around my neighbourhood, be that through gardening, helping with the shopping, cleaning cars, and so on. I go to church every Sunday. I read my scriptures and pray everyday and aim to be more Christlike everyday.
