Hi I'm Braden Johnstun

I love outdoors, sports, boating, music, doing anything crazy that makes me and others laugh, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a current missionary in the Missouri Independence mission. I'm a fun seeker. I am most happy when I am laughing with others. I played tennis in high school and I intend after my mission. I also love ping pong football and anything close to a sport. I love boating and camping I wait for it all year. After my mission I plan to go to college. I have a really creative mind, I am constantly thinking of new ideas, possibilities, stories, or ways to laugh. I love doing crazy things to make me and others laugh and doing crazy things in public. In someway I hope if can use these skills in my career. I always have a desire to learn new things and develop new skills. I am a devout Denver broncos fan and I love to go to Denver to seem then play.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but I was not always active in the church or actively living the gospel by any means. I was constantly sitting on the fence decided which team to join. Wether to put on the worlds jersey or Christ's jersey was my question. One day I finally put it to the test I was going to choose which jersey, I wanted to find out if Christ is there if there was a point in living his commandments. My answer was clear and profound, I know who I serve and I know to whom I belong. Sometimes I slip and fall and I might have to sit on the bench but because of him I can rise and try again! I encourage you all to find out for yourself to search for your own witness of the truth. I know what I know, and nothing can ever change that.

How I live my faith

I am currently on a mission for 2 years, I come home in the beginning of 2015. Missionaries do service and help people develop a closer relationship with their savior. I am not perfect but I have realized that there is no way to be happier than to trust in god and let him handle things, you will never regret it! I try to fallow what he wants me to do and welcome others to do the same to have a happier life.

Are Mormons Christians?

Braden Johnstun
The name that the church has been given is " The Church of Jesus Christ" nick named Mormons.(3 Nephi 27:8) And how be it my church save it be called in my name? For if a church be called in Moses’ name then it be Moses’ church; or if it be called in the name of a man then it be the church of a man; but if it be called in my name then it is my church, if it so be that they are built upon my gospel. We believe that this is Jesus Christ church the one and only, restored back to the earth. If we are members of his church then of course we believe in Jesus Christ and are Christians. We believe that he suffered for all of mankind and that only through his grace, but by us accepting his grace, we have the opportunity to gain eternal life. Show more Show less
