Hi I'm Chandler Johns

I have grown up in Utah for most of my life. And excited to serve The Lord by serving a mission in São Paulo Brazil.

About Me

I am the oldest of 5 children in my young happy family. We live in Utah and have lived in Idaho and Tennessee but I have grown up in Utah for the majority of my life. I played on my high school drumline for all years of high school and am a percussionist. I love to draw, ski, and golf in my free time. I am now attending BYU and am majoring in mechanical engineering. I love to research technology and new advances coming. I get into projects deeply and am a perfectionist about all of the work I do. I am proud to be a mormon and share my happiness and His gospel to the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my testimony of the church, scriptures, and prophets. I have felt through His spirit (a feeling of comfort, warmth, peace, knowledge, and light) that this church and gospel is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book that prophecies of Jesus Christ visiting the America's and that it was translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith really did see God and His Son Jesus Christ in person and received revelation from him. I know that the prophets today receive revelation and guidance for us, His children. I know that we can receive revelation as I have received revelation for myself and have come to know that the LDS church is true, and the prophets today and of old were all prophets of God, and that the Book of Mormon is a true book. I am glad I am a member of the LDS church. I am glad I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making sure I always follow The Lord's commandments and what the prophets have commanded me. One of the ways I live my faith is by serving a mission for the LDS church, as The Lord has commanded. I will be preaching His gospel in São Paulo Brazil in the Portuguese language for 2 years starting November 2014. I have always attended church meetings and have done what is required of me to make sure I am following His example.
