Hi I'm James

I grew up in Great Britain, I am a missionary serving in the Alpine German-speaking mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 3 sisters and no brothers. My mother and father are separated and they live on different continents but I still love them both. I love playing snooker with my Dad. I love photography, I enjoy producing a picture i can be proud of. I have completed few Charity events with my friends in the Church for many illnesses such as Cancer Research and Head-aid. I have completed college education and I have chosen to become a missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I chose to be. Regardless of being born into church, even at a young age i had the choice to go to church and then become a baptised member at age 8. Even being born into the church, I too had to have my own conversion and develop my own testimony of the church. I prayed and asked God with a sincere desire to know if this was the right path for me and if I should continue or find something else to believe. He answered, not immediately and not in an awesome, eventful way but by a feeling in my heart. I know this is the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and i am filled with joy to know im doing what my Father in Heaven would like me to do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying every day to become better and by serving everyone i can. I believe that everyone one this earth is a Child of God and i know that God loves them as much as he loves me. I live my faith by accepting my duty to share the Restored Gospel with everyone who will accept it as a missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints in the Alpine German-speaking Mission from 2014-2016.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

James
No member of The Church is required to serve a misson. One of the duties of a young man who holds the Priesthood within the Church is to serve and mission, this male is not terminated from membership if he does not but he does not fulfil the duties of his position. Women can also serve a mission, they do not have the same duty to serve but there service is gratefully accepted. Show more Show less
