Hi I'm Christopher Jensen

I am seventeen. I was born in New Jersey and moved to Michigan. I'm an Eagle Scout. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Christopher. I'm eighteen and I graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School.I went to BYU for a semester before my mission and I'm currently serving a mission. I'm one of nine children in my family. I like to play basketball with brothers and anyone else who will play. I also like to play the piano and the cello. I've been playing piano since I was eight and cello since I was twelve. I am also a Boy Scout and received my Eagle Scout this past spring.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to the Mormon church, but this doesn't mean I don't have a conversion story. I think the first time I truly felt the Holy Ghost was at Trek. Trek is a youth conference where everyone dresses up as pioneers and we pull handcarts for three days. We trekked a combined 19 miles the first two days and everyone was really tired. The afternoon of the third day the leaders gave us time to write in our journals and read the scriptures. I hadn't previously been reading so I opened my scriptures to a random page which happened to be Moroni's promise, or Moroni 10:4-5. In it Moroni promises anyone a testimony who asks in faith. I then thought to my self "Everyone is entitled to have a testimony, and that includes me." So I prayed and asked if the book of Mormon is true, and I had an overwhelming feeling of peace and a feeling that it was true. I then got really excited and asked if Joseph Smith was a true prophet and if the gospel is true, and the feeling stayed. I know what I felt was the Holy Ghost. It's this combined with other moments like it that make my testimony that the Gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I'm serving a mission right now to Campinas Brazil. Mission life is really difficult, but also so rewarding because of how much it helps people.
