Hi I'm Cannon

I grew up in Idaho. I am currently serving a mission in the Nevada Reno Mission Spanish Speaking. I,m a Mormon!

About Me

I love to do anything outdoors! Swim, hike, camp, you name it. I will be serving a 2-year mission to the Nevada Reno Mission Spanish Speaking for the period of two years. I have had the honor and privilege to work at Teton Toyota for the past two years as a Lot Attendant. When I return from my mission, I plan on College attain a pharmacy degree.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this Gospel is true. When I was 2, I fell off of a step at my grandparent's house and landed on my bottom. The next couple of days, my parents noticed that I was acting a little different. They took me to the doctor. With a couple of x-rays and MRI's, they diagnosed me with a Brain Hemorrhage (bleeding around the brain). The doctors wanted to operate immediately. My father told them to not operate, but wait till morning. The doctors listened and allowed my father and my home teachers into the room. The gave me a Priesthood Blessing of Healing. The next morning, the doctors rushed into the room to hurry and operate on me. They took several more x-rays and MRI's to see if there was still blood around the brain. To their amazement, there was no blood. Not even a single clot! This is just one of the many miracles in my life that testifies to me and my family that this Gospel is true and that the Priesthood is real. I choose to continue to follow the Gospel and it's teachings because of the positive effects it has had on my life. I know that i am healthier and happier following it's teaching rather than falling away attempting to "do my own thing" With this Gospel, I know that I have the opportunity to be with my family for eternity. Considering all the great sacrifices they have made for me to be where I am today, I want to be with them and continue to show them my love for as long as I can.

How I live my faith

I have grown up in the church. I am proud to be apart of my faith. I have had the opportunity to serve my community many times and vise versa. I have built a ramp for a man in my ward that has Muscular Dystophy. It was built in 2013 and is still in use today. I have also had the opportunity to shovel many sidewalks and driveways of snow. In doing the acts of service, I am often surprised by cookies and homemade bread on my doorstep. It's an honor to give service to friends that are in need.
