Hi I'm Elder Chandon Herring

I am a Missionary, I love Arizona, I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love Football. I am going to BYU on a football scholarship. I love weight lifting, I can read all day, I have a large family of 8 people (6 kids) and I am the second oldest. I really love my family and I am so happy that I know that we can be together forever. I am a Missionary in Washington D.C. and share the gospel everyday! I am obsessed with cooking/eating and enjoy the company of old people haha. Really though they are the best! I enjoy strategy games and history. I am an Eagle Scout. I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus is the Christ. I know that he lives and that he came to Earth again appearing to Joseph Smith. I know that He came to restore his Gospel that brings us happiness, joy, and purpose to our lives. I know that Joseph Translated the Golden Plates to bring us the Book Of Mormon. It is not here to replace the Bible it is here is be another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Christ can forgive us of our mistakes, relieving us of our guilt and pain of our many mistakes, and He can lead us back to our Heavenly Father who loves us and wants us to return to him. I know the power of prayer. It is a literal connection between us and our Father in Heaven. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the true and living prophet chosen to lead and guide Christ's Church today. He is the mouthpiece of the Lord. I know that this Church is true. And most important of all I know God loves us and understands. We mess up and fall short time and time again but as long as we try and do what we can he will bless us and not forsake us. I know he truly loves me and this is my greatest strength and testimony. In the name of Christ our Savior, Amen.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my entire life but I had to come to know the truth for myself. I came to know this truth as I have shared it with others, read and prayed, and came to understand the love that God has for me. I love being a missionary and even if all I do is say hello and smile it makes someones day better. I have been able to be a leader in all of the different groups I have been in and have been blessed with many opportunities to serve others and make a difference. I am serving a mission for 2 years and am about half way. I do this because I know the joy and happiness the truth brings to our lives and I need to share it with everyone. We live it if we mean it. President Howard W. Hunter said, "A great indicator of ones personal conversion is the desire to share the gospel with others." I try to show my belief by living it and trying everyday to be little better and little more like Jesus Christ. Please shoot me an email and we can talk about it! Looking forward to hearing from you!
