Hi I'm Merrill Jones

I have been a member all my life. Born in Reno Nevada and now live in Elko, Nevada.

About Me

I am a life long member of the Church. My Great Grandfather migrated from Scotland, joined the church after arriving in the united states. He Surveyed what is now called St. George Utah. My grandfather homesteaded in Nevada. The area was known as Hot Creek located south of Lund, Nevada. I am retired from gold mining and enjoy scroll sawing. I have been married to my wife for 48 years. We have 3 children and 9 grand children.

Why I am a Mormon

I an a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints is the only religion that can answer the three questions-Where we came from, Why are we here, and Where do we go after this life. It is the only church that teaches the answers to these questions completely. It also teaches family values. The Book of Mormon is true and is another witness of Jesus Christ. If one reads and prays about the truthfulness of this book, one will receive your own testimony of its worth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being active and supporting my church leaders. I have been a ward clerk, finance clerk, executive secretary for 40 years. Now my wife and I are preparing to go on a mission. This will help my grand kids now that I believe in the church.I
