Hi I'm Joseph Wiscombe

I grew up in Utah. I am a missionary in Wisconsin. I love sports and music. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for our church serving in Wisconsin. I love basketball and sports in general. I am the older brother of three little boys and I have two amazing older sisters. I also have an amazing mother and father. I love the scriptures and the happiness and peace that they bring to my life. I love our Savior Jesus Christ and hope that we can all be just like him one day!

Why I am a Mormon

So there are many reasons why I am a Mormon, but the main one would have to be because I have come to know that what this church teaches is true. As a missionary I get to invite people to look for the truth for themselves and to ask God if what we are teaching is true. I don't think it would be fair if I didn't know that what I was teaching them was true or not. I have come to know the truth of this church by doing just that. Asking God, and by studying the scriptures he has given us, and by just asking what direction he wants me to take in life. Whatever it may be. I have gained my testimony over time. What this church teaches has blessed me in my life and that much I do know. That I have seen the difference between living the teachings of Christ's gospel and not living them. I am so much more happy when I live the teachings of the gospel, and I just wish everyone could see how much of a difference it makes. As humans all we really want is to be happy and feel loved, and I know this gospel has done that for me, and that it can do it for everyone if they really want to know of its truth and search it out for themselves. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior, and that he just wants us all to be happy, and he has revealed his gospel in our day and age so that we can be happy. I hope we all can have a desire to search out our Savior and search out the truth. Because through him we can all find happiness. If there is anyone who can show us the way it's our Savior:)

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a lot of different ways. Right now I am serving a full time mission for two years in Wisconsin for our church. I get to go different places and talk to people about our church and what we do and why we have The Book of Mormon and the importance of it to us as people.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Joseph Wiscombe
This question actually has been asked to me quite a few times in my life now, especially on a mission. Do Mormons only help Mormons? In fact a very main focus of our religion is to help other people! So I love when that question comes up. We very much so believe that everyone deserves to know the Lords love for them and the truths that he has revealed in our day. What we have isn't just for members of the Church, we want everyone to have it! It's something that has blessed me in my life so much and I have seen the difference. I personally want others to know the truths about my Savior that I know. Because they have brought me peace and happiness. So in answer, members of the Church are enthusiastic to share that what they have they want everyone to take part in! Show more Show less
