Hi I'm James

I play soccer, football and ultimate frisbee. I love jokes. I know a little ASL. I'm a missionary, so............. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Right now I am in the Texas Fort Worth mission but when I am done I plan to go to collage and become an anesthesiologist or I want to work for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as a seminary or Institute teacher. ( I have not made up my mind yet.) I want to become an anesthesiologist so that i can help people and I want to be a seminary or instuite so I can help the youth in the church learn and grow in the beautiful gospel of Jesus Christ. I enjoy playing soccer and my favorite position is goalie. In high school I played football. I played mostly on the offensive live as center or tackle. Another sport i enjoy playing is Ultimate Frisbee. One of my friends in high school started an Ultimate Frisbee club where we would play games at lunch. I became really good friends with the group of people that played.

Why I am a Mormon

So i was born in to the church but my Father is not a member. I feel that i have stayed in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because when i miss a Sunday meeting i feel that something is missing from my life and that void is filled when i return to church the next week.

How I live my faith

My ward is very involved with the community. A few years ago there was a huge push to get us a members out on a specific Saturday for a day of service. We asked the city for projects that they need man power to accomplish and they gave us projects like park clean up and maintenance. Every year these projects have grow and become city wide projects not just the church. Last year we made a new city park on an empty lot. This park is designed to show the history of the area. I have participated in all of these projects and it has helped show the community how people can make a difference. Our service day has become a way for people from all over town to be brought together because different service groups, high school sport teams, and anyone who wants to to come out and make a difference. I also am currently living my faith as a Mormon Missionary. We go out and talk to people about Jesus Christ and God, and try our best, not to "convert them to become Members of this church" but to help them increase their faith in Jesus Christ, so that they can have eternal life. I feel that the best way that I love my faith though is by the way I live. It is not just one big event or act that is the way I love my faith. I know that the way that I live is the way that I live and show my faith. It is a bunch of little things that show people my faith.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

James
The atonement of Jesus Christ is when Christ suffered for us, so we can live with our Hevenly Father again. It started when Christ went to the Garden of Gethsemane, through his crucifixion and ended with his resurrection. It was necessary for Jesus Christ to die so that we could be forgiven of our sins and also so that we could be ressurested as Jesus Christ was. Show more Show less

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

James
Mormon Church Services are a spirtual experience each week for me. It is three hours long but is split in to 3 basic parts. 1. Sacrament meeting, where the entire congregation meets together for worshipped to partake of the Sacrament,(also know as communion). 2. Sunday school split up by age for apporiate understanding to be taught. 3. It is another Sunday school class that splits more on age and gender so that you are able to learn the Gospel and apply it specifically into your life. Visitors are always welcome to our Chaples for worship. Bring your entire family everyone is welcome to come. Show more Show less
