Hi I'm Jared Johnson

I grew up in the United States then moved to Shanghai, China when I was sixteen. I play baseball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been playing baseball since I was seven years old and it is my favorite hobby. I've also had the opportunity to travel around many parts of Asia. I've seen places like the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Japan. I am currently preparing to serve a mission which I will begin in August 2014. After my mission I will go to college at Brigham Young University where I will study business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because the amazing feelings of joy and peace I feel around this gospel of Jesus Christ are undeniable. I have a sure knowledge of the truthfulness of Christ and his church on the Earth. I know he has called a prophet to lead and guide His people throughout this mortal life. I also know that The Book of Mormon is a book of God and that it truly testifies of Jesus Christ. I undoubtedly know that this church is true and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a leader over the group of boys in the church who are 16-18 years old. I help plan activities and lessons for the group to help us grow closer to Christ. I also visit families in the church with my dad. We serve them and give brief gospel thoughts. In my community I try to act as an example of Christ to other expatriates and the Chinese people.
