Hi I'm Josh

I love to be outdoors and enjoying nature.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the church in the Uganda Kampala Mission which includess the countries of Ethiopia and Rwanda along with Uganda. I was a student at Brigham Young University Provo before taking a two year break for my mission. In my free time however I love to explore. I enjoy going on hikes to discover cool new places. Most often my destination has water. I love waterfalls, lakes, rivers etc. A day out on the lake boating or jumping off rocks is a great day in my book. I also enjoy rock climbing and white water rafting along with playing water polo, basketball, and Frisbee.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life but really started to think about why I remain a member when I was in High School. I soon came to realize that through my faith in Jesus Christ and following the teachings I was very happy in my life. A lot of my closest friends have come through being Mormon. From following the teachings as well, I have noticed that my life has always been easier when I follow them. I feel that I have a purpose and a meaning. The feelings that I have received through service and other activities I have done from being a member have always made me feel great. I have never felt happier than when living the standards. In high school I saw a lot of my friends struggle with issues that I never had. I realized that some other the things they were doing adding a lot of unneeded stress. Being Mormon and following what I know to be true has always brought me the most happiness.

How I live my faith

I actively attend church each week and help out in anyway I can. As a missionary I get the opportunity to dedicate all my time to service and sharing the Gospel which has brought me so much happiness in my life. I spend most of my time focused on helping others and forgetting about myself. It's great!
