Hi I'm Chris Mitchell

I'm from a city called Brighton which is a seaside resort in England UK, I love my family and my friends and animals, I'm a mormon

About Me

I work in construction doing extensions/refurbishments, painting/decorating i love the work and the job satisfaction you get when you have made someones home really nice to live in and when they are happy with the finishing results. My hobbies and interests are computers bit nerdy i know but i'm a big gamer always have been, love football playing/watching it my favorite football team is Manchester United. But my favorite hobbies and interests are now reading the book of Mormon, and being a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. I love everything about it, the fantastic and amazing doctrines which the gospel has to teach, the way we can apply these things in our lives to better ourselves and to also bless and help those around us.

Why I am a Mormon

My testimony. As a kid i used to go to church quite regularly with my Nan, I did and always have believed in god and Jesus. But overtime I stopped going to church and eventually as time got on I started doing bad things and picking up bad habits, but i was still a good person I always have been just too many temptations around me while I was growing up, this is Brighton after all I know this is no excuse but for the people here who know what Brighton's underworld is like knows it can be a dark place with many bad things you can easily get yourself involved in. Anyway one day i heard that my Nan was very ill and was in hospital little did i know she was dying, i remember going to see her and i recall how weak she looked it got to me but i tried my best not to let it show. I remember the last thing she said to me was "don't worry i'll be alright" at the time i took her word for it. I prayed that she would get better but in the end that didn't happen the worst part was i didn't get the chance to say goodbye. Anyway after that i had lost my faith, I even remember mum saying god obviously needed her more then we do. From there my depression got worse started getting involved in more bad stuff/habits, anyway this continued for years all up until a few months back when i met the 1st of 3 angels who would eventually help me to get where i am today. Her name was sister Barrow she introduced me to the book of Mormon, then i met the 2nd angel sometime later sister Walmsley she was a big influence on me at this point i was praying reading the book and attending church, then sister Barrow had to leave an i met the final angel who would help me sister Dimond. Since then they have helped me to gain a better understanding of the gospel, and it's thanks to that i have been able to stick to the words of wisdom, but more importantly i now have complete faith in heavenly father and Jesus Christ. I testify that there is hope for all of gods children in the name of Jesus Christ Amen!

How I live my faith

I like to go out on teaches with the missionaries as much as possible and when i'm not working, i like to think i'm doing my bit to help those understand the gospel and why it would be good for them to have it in there lives, like i was taught when i was investigating the church. With each person i see learning in the same way i did and use their agency to commit themselves to baptism and make these covenants with heavenly father increases my faith constantly! Even my mum who has seen the difference in me with thanks to the sister missionaries, Jesus Christ, and Heavenly Father has taken it upon herself to get baptised aswell! I currently have two callings the first one which i received was to be the building ward representative, and the most recent one i received was to be the young men's first counselor. both great callings both of which i will give my best effort.
