Hi I'm Zac Johnson

I'm from the US, I play guitar, I love adventure, and I´m on my mission in Santos, Brazil.

About Me

I am a self taught guitarist but I can't read music! I love professional football and baseball and will always cheer for my Dallas Cowboys and Washington Nationals. I love adventure and had the opportunity to go skydiving for my 18th birthday. On 30 October 2013 I start my two year mission in Santos, Brazil. Upon my return, I will be attending Utah State University. I've had amazing experiences in my life. I've had the blessing of living on the east coast, near so much culture, history, and amazing places.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is not something that is very difficult for me. I have been raised in this church but I have found for myself it's truthfulness. There was a time where I doubted the things that the LDS church taught but I took the time to read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if the Book and the teachings of the church were true. The things I felt after I read and prayed gave me an unshakable testimony of the Book of Mormon and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Living outside of Utah means getting asked a lot of questions about my beliefs. I love these questions. I love sharing what I believe with others. Yes, there are those who make fun of my church but that does not discourage me. I encourage all who ask about the church to read the Book of Mormon. People must find for themselves whether the church is true. I promise all who read the Book of Mormon and pray about it will receive an answer.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to teach all ages of people in the church: children, youth, adults, and church investigators. Once a month my dad and I visit a family in our church to check in on them and leave an uplifting and inspiring message. I have been called to serve as a missionary in the Santos, Brazil area. For two years I will serve The Lord by sharing the gospel with the wonderful people of Brazil.
