Hi I'm Chris

I grew up in northern canada. I am a convert of 2010. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love chess and other challenging games. I am interested in biology and physics. I am called to serve as an elder in Michigan mission starting december 3rd 2014. I love labour service although sharing the church has been a challenge.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon and have been since april 2010. I first learned about the church from a friend of my sisters that was raised in the church. I had heard the term mormon before and didn't really understand what it was I always thought it was either a school or sports team that had a lot of rules that needed to be met to continue playing for them. My sister wasn't always a very good influence for me and I knew some of what she had been getting into was bad but I didnt fully understand why. Well in 2009 my sisters friend brought missionaries to my house to teach my sister and I admit I didn't pay attention to what they had to say but I noticed that my sister was going out less and was vhanging and this made me wonder what these missionaries had to say because my family had transitioned from a church going family in the catholic church to a Christmas and easter family. But now my sister was going to church every sunday and it surprised me but not enough to investigate. I am a ward of the yukon government and have been with the same foster family since I was 2 years old. As I got older I would go for respite to other families for a weekend and that was when I went to the Littles household for a weekend. They have been in the church for a long time and the father was actually Branch President but I knew none of this. Anyways I went to their house and met their son Chris who was strong member of the church and he was a year older than me but he showed me what I could be if I stayed on the right track and he became my best friend and then when I met him at church it just helped strengthen my own testimony because he was a boy my own age that was a great example of the church standards he was everything I wanted to become and he helped me along the way and has been a great strength since the day we met of the power the priesthood has.

How I live my faith

I will be serving a church mission in december. I have served callings as a deacon(12-14) teacher(14-16) and priest(16-18). I setup sacrament in my branch and bless the sacrament. I have home teaching assignments and help give lessons with the missionaries in my branch.
