Hi I'm John

I'm a Sports fan. I'm studying Linguistics. I stand for what is right. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21. Youngest in a family of 9. I'm the only one not married and the only one that doesn't have kids. I lived in Japan (Tokyo Area) for two years as a volunteer missionary. I am a University student studying Linguistics. I love sports. My favorite of which is Tennis. I also play Golf, Basketball, Soccer, Baseball, and Ping Pong (thanks to Japan). In high school I was Student Body President. I enjoy seeing other people find success in things that they felt they couldn't.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I feel in my heart that it is true. I grew up in the church and listened to my parents teach my about the church. I went to church and participated in the church activities. When I got to college though I really had a great desire to feel the love of Jesus Christ in my life more then I was then feeling. Through reading the scriptures and the words of living prophets and apostles and through praying I felt a greater sense of love in my life. Because of this I desired to serve as a missionary. While I was a missionary I had times when people would challenge what I believe. One time after I had my beliefs challenged I was studying in the Bible to find out the answers to the things I had been challenged on. Well in my attempt to find these answers I was stumped because the Bible was saying conflicting ideas regarding this topic. I then prayed to find out what was the truth. I had been taught in this church what the true doctrine was concerning this topic but I wanted an answer from the Bible. After praying I sat back down and looked forward still without my answer. Then it dawned on me that this is why the Restoration was needed and why the Book of Mormon is so critical for us to find truth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that this Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I go to church each Sunday. I also help out with the scouting group that the church sponsors. In the past I have team-taught a class about Gospel doctrine and served as a missionary for 2 years teaching others about Jesus Christ.
