Hi I'm John Snelders

I grew up in Alaska and Idaho. I love the cold and snow! I am going on a mission to Colorado this summer, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

Im going on a mission to Fort Collins, Colorado. After that I am planning on attending BYU. I compete in cross country skiing and swimming and play and sing in the band and choir. I am a youth leadership delegate in the NRECA. I love my family and the oldest of four kids. I was raised in the LDS faith!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but I became converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ when I was in middle and high schools. I had gone through some rough times, but my Heavenly Father let me know through prayer and blessings that I would be taken care of. I am so thankful God has given us his son so we can get back to the right path. I have faith and know that my Redeemer lives. I know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God and helps us find our way back.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the Gospel and striving each day to recognize all that i have been given by my Father in Heaven. This last year, I committed to go on a mission and am called to serve in the Fort Collins, Colorado Mission, English Speaking. I will be serving the Lord and learning more about the plan of salvation as I serve and teach his people. When I return home i plan to get married in the temple and raise a family in the gospel. I Know That My Redeemer Lives.

What is faith?

John Snelders
Faith is an action word. We show our Faith in Jesus Christ by our trust and willingness to serve him. Faith without works is dead, therefore we must act on the answers we are given through prayer to help our Faith grow. Ether 12 Show more Show less
