Hi I'm Joel Wood

I grew up in California. I play football, and basketball. i'm serving a mission in Honduras. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to play all sports. team sports like football and basketball. and individual sports, like surfing, biking, and golf. I love hanging out with my family, and friends. I love the outdoors. and I love life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of later day saints because when I was 14 years old I found out for myself if its right to be one. I didn't believe in God or the gospel when I was younger. I didn't want any religion in my life. But I had to make sure it wasn't real before I started doing bad stuff. so I went to other churches, and read the bible and book of Mormon. and prayed. and right when I was about to say ok, God isn't real. I was reading the Book Of Mormon for and I was going to pray one last time if its true or not (expecting no answer) and right as I closed the book and went on my knees, the spirit entered my soul and filled it with so much joy and glory and love. more than i had ever thought possible. the answer was unmistakable. and I prayed saying "Heavenly father, I know now. Thank you" . I know its true, and it makes me happier than anything this world could offer.

How I live my faith

I am currently a ward missionary in my ward. I assist the full time missionaries. . I give service to others as much as possible. And I am preparing to serve a full time mission for the people of Honduras.
