Hi I'm Jesse

I'm a DJ, I love graffiti, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I'm currently serving in the Honduras Comayaguela Mission. My family is living on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Lukachukai, Arizona. I had the opportunity to live amongst and serve the Navajo for two years before I went on a mission for the LDS Church. Before this I've lived all across the United States, from the West Coast to the East Coast, and have come to love every part of it. I also worked as a DJ for a local radio station before I left for my mission. I plan to attend Brigham Young University - Idaho when I return home after two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. I also appreciate and respect the standards that the Church has in regards to personal and social conduct. A lot of times I'll find that other people and organizations try to promote agendas that I don't agree with. Being a Mormon, or a member of the LDS Church, has been a huge blessing to help me direct my life in a positive direction. Being a Mormon has also helped me solidify my testimony that Jesus Christ is real, that He loves and cares for us, and that He lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by applying the principles of the gospel in my everyday life. I do this by treating others as Christ would have if he were here on the earth. This is best done through my service to others. When I lived on the Navajo Reservation I would chop wood, haul water, and give assistance with community member's gardens. Another way I live my faith is through showing kindness to those who I come in contact with. I believe in the golden rule to treat others as you'd like to be treated so I always treat people with respect and love.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mormon missionaries proselyte because of many reasons, however most of these incentives can be summarized into three points. One, they are filled with the joy and knowledge that Jesus Christ is real, and has provided a way in which we can be saved, as well as stay happy while on earth. Two, they share the knowledge of a companion set of scriptures to the Holy Bible known as the Book of Mormon. These scriptures act as another testament of Jesus Christ, and describes the early history of the first Native Americans to live in the Americas who were visited by Jesus Christ. Three, they are commissioned, or commanded, to go and teach all nations just as the original disciples of Jesus Christ were. It is a duty and great joy to serve those who don't have a knowledge of God or of Jesus Christ, and to bring families closer because of this knowledge. Show more Show less
