Hi I'm Jaden Michael Ralphs

I've lived in America for most of my life, I love playing soccer(futbol). I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been called to serve as an LDS missionary to labor in Ecuador. I've grown up in the church and know a lot about it, and if not I know where I can go to find out the information. The truest thing I know of is that God lives and he speaks to us today through his prophet. I enjoy playing soccer(futbol) and was a captain of my high school soccer team. I'm very outgoing and open minded, even though most would say I was sheltered as a child. I love spending time with my family and friends. After I return from my mission I would like to go to college, make a living for myself, and settle down with a beautiful wife. I'm genuinely friendly and I love helping out others.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon today is because I know that everything about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true, and it has been revealed unto me by God through the Holy Ghost. Also, there is not another thing in this world that has brought me more happiness than this restored gospel. I would be completely lost without it. You see, mormonism, or being apart of the LDS church is not a religion, nor is it even an idea, but it is the truth. It is the only way we can recieve a complete and full happiness in this life and our life after death. I guess the real reason why I am a Mormon today is because I am happy.

How I live my faith

In the LDS church I was part of a group of younger men called "Priests" but now I'm with the older, but still reletively young, men and we are "Elders." We each recieve callings or duties that are assigned to us by the President of the Elder group, and/or our Bishop. My calling is a bit different though, I requested to be called to serve as an LDS missionary, where my duty is to go to a part of the world that is in need of the restored gospel. My request was aproved by the order of the Prophet(First Presidency) and I will be serving in Ecuador for two years.
