Hi I'm Elder John Black Jr

I grew up in a small town! I love the outdoors fishing, racing, running, and spending time with family & friend's. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love anything that has to do with my family or friends. some of my favorite things to do, involve the outdoors. i love to be in the snow but i won't argue with a chance to be at the beach in the sun shine. I played football, raced BMX, Ran cross country, wrestled, ran track, and when i'm not involved in any of those sports i love to race cars with my family, and ride at the dune with my friends. I have two dogs, i love to farm, fish and have bomb fires. I am the oldest of three kids, I have a younger brother and a younger sister. I am recently serving a full time mission! and i have been out for 20 months in the Georgia Atlanta Mission. I love being a Mormon!!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church of Jesus Christ of later day saint's. I choose to keep following the gospel, because it's what I have come to know it is true. I love the word of god, I know that by serving my mission that it will bless my life and my family to come as well. this truly is the restored gospel here on the earth today. Jesus Christ kingdom has been restored to us again through a living prophet and through a simple question that was given by a 14 year old boy, and because that question was given we as children of a loving heavenly father now that this gospel is true. i have asked for my self and i have prayed long and hard. I know for myself that this is the true church and that Jesus Christ is the redeemer of the world and he is my savior. because i know this for my self i love being apart of this gospel the true and ever lasting gift that brings happiness to our families. This is why i love being a Mormon!!

How I live my faith

I grew up in this church, and as a young man I loved serving my friends and family. As I grew up in this faith i was involved in scouting and youth group activities, and while doing so trying to help out in the community. As I got older and was more involved in high school activities i tried to be a good influence towards my friends. when the time started to get closer to going on a mission i worked on getting prepared. I received my mission call to the Georgia Atlanta Mission and I am now currently enjoying serving my fellow men and doing my best to bring the gift of this beautiful restored gospel. My mission has changed my life in so many ways, that i could never ask for anything better. this gospel truly brings happiness and great joy to your life. since being on my mission i have tried to do this very thing. this is how i enjoy being a Mormon as a full time missionary and as a fully converted follower of Jesus Christ.
