Hi I'm Christopher Le Cheminant

I've grown up in Calgary. I just got called to serve in the Kenya Nairobi Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy watching Formula 1. I play guitar and read fantasy and sci-fi novels, I've competed on an F1 in schools team that won the Best Engineered Car award at the world level. I love airplanes and plan on going to school for aerospace engineering after serving my mission in Nairobi, Kenya.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the church is true. I've had the opportunity to pray about the first vision and other aspects of this gospel, and I have felt the truth of it as I have done so. I've been able to find peace and happiness as I've lived the principles of this gospel. I know I would be nowhere near the person I am today without this church.

How I live my faith

I've served with the 16-18 year olds as a youth leader, I'm working hard at learning the gospel so I can be an excellent missionary, and I've volunteered at the local library.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Christopher Le Cheminant
No, but it's strongly recommended for young men of 18, and encouraged for young women of 19 to do so. A big part of this is because it is a very valuable experience. I have made the choice on my own to serve a mission, and I've done so because I have found a lot of happiness in living the gospel and I want to bring that to others. I've seen the changes that missionaries have brought to the lives of others, and I want to do that too. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Christopher Le Cheminant
I am so glad I can answer this question with absolutely on both accounts. Because my Mom and Dad were married in the temple I will be able to live with them and my brother and sister again. I am striving to keep the commandments now so that when I am married I can be married forever, and live with my own family forever. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Christopher Le Cheminant
The biggest indicator for me is in my prayer and scripture study. When I pray and read my scriptures I can feel closer to him, and receive instruction from him through the Holy Ghost. I also love to spend time in the mountains, and the beauty of the stars and the nature that surrounds me as I am hiking or camping, remind me of the greatness of God and I think of how much he loves us to have created these beautiful landscapes.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Christopher Le Cheminant
What's most amazing about the scriptures is that they can still apply to our lives today. By reading the scriptures we are able to learn a lot about God's commandments, and when we live those commandments we are able to have peace and happiness in our lives. When we read of the words of modern day prophets we are able to learn answers to the questions of modern times, which is growing more and more important as we advance. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Christopher Le Cheminant
The atonement of Jesus Christ is a very significant event. As Christ suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross, he suffered for our sins, and felt all of the pain and suffering we would face on the earth. He did this so that we could live with him and our Father in Heaven again. Because of the atonement we are able to repent and become clean. In addition to this we can always go in prayer and know that Christ has a perfect understanding of the pain we are going through. Show more Show less
