Hi I'm Josh

I'm an Aussie. A missionary in Sydney and Northern NSW. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Australia Sydney North Mission and am loving it! I worked for an environmental company, while on the side enjoyed crew weekends with the Rural Fire Brigade. I enjoy 4WD and camping with my mates. Growing up, my family did long trips to various destinations in the great outdoors e.g. Cape York, Ayers Rock... I am an outdoors sort of bloke. I have relatives all over Australia (especially Queensland). I love my family. I think the world of my Mum. She is the strongest, most gentle loving lady you could ask for as a Mum. My Dad does a good job too :D My siblings are all great examples to me!

Why I am a Mormon

I know Jesus Christ is my personal Saviour. He loves me and I am eternally grateful for the sacrifices He made for all mankind. I know the boy Joseph Smith asked Heavenly Father for an answer. As a result he saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ! Joseph Smith was then directed to restore eternal truths, which constantly bless my life today (physically and spiritually). I choose to follow the Restored Gospel because I have a personal testimony that it is true, simple and pure. I choose to act in Faith, because I have felt the Love, Grace and Power of the Atonement that Jesus Christ made.

How I live my faith

"We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law." (Article of Faith 1:12) I think being an upstanding citizen in any community is important. In an effort to do my (little) bit in the community I joined the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service. It was great fun and an awesome environment, helping others that were in need. Getting know great people and learning valuable skills. I was fresh out of high school when I started working full-time to save for a full-time mission. I have been a missionary for over a year now and LOVE IT! I knew the Lord was preparing me for a mission in my teen years. Many times I asked my Father in Heaven if I should serve a mission. The answer came through many different ways. Such as listening to modern day prophets, advice from parents, reading my scriptures and feeling the spirit when I asked in prayer and faith. This eventually gave me such a strong desire to serve my Father in Heaven by being a missionary. I now teach people all day long about how they can change their lives and be happier through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I love the people and work more and more every day!
