Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Utah. I'm currently a missionary in the Dutch Caribbean. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn about culture and history. I love to travel and experience new culture. I've traveled all across the United States, Europe, and currently the Caribbean. I'm a currently a Dutch missionary serving in the Trinidad Port of Spain Mission. After my mission I plan on attending school at Brigham Young University, studying Computer Science and International Business.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love the happiness and clarity I receive from living the gospel. In a world enamored in confusion with so many explanations of why we're here, I find joy and peace in the gospel. The gospel of Jesus Christ helps me become a better person with better perception of how I view, interpret, and interact in the world. I enjoy learning about culture and history and learning about people who lived before me. It is a great blessing to know that we can all return to live with our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ and His atonement. I know that I can receive answers to my questions through prayer and reading the scriptures. I have received confirmation of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon in my life, and I know that all of God's children can receive a confirmation of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon if they pray with a sincere heart and search the scriptures diligently. I love this gospel and I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary serving in the Trinidad Port of Spain mission, a brand new mission created in July, 2015. My mission includes 6 different countries in the Caribbean, including the Netherlands Antilles, Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana, and Suriname. As a missionary I help others come unto Christ by helping and teaching them about the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a powerful tool in our lives that can help us come closer to our Heavenly Father.
