Hi I'm London Johnson

I'm from Utah. I'm serving a mission in Germany, Berlin. I'm a future anthropologist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a current university student working towards my degree in anthropology, but I'm leaving in a few weeks to serve in the Germany, Berlin mission. I love hiking, my viola, backpacking, fishing, reading, motorcycles, and being with my three younger siblings who are my best friends. The dream is to just have a job doing something I love, a family who I love, and the prettiest greenhouse you've ever seen. If in five years I find myself doing research in a museum somewhere and preparing to ride my motorcycle across Africa I would be pretty Happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the only way to truly come nearer to Jesus Christ. I've read the Book of Mormon and I've done my best to live the things taught in it and I know its true. I've seen how it changes lives. Through the gospel everything just makes sense, and through it there is a peace and love that can't be felt any other way. I have been a member of this church my whole life, but only through living this gospel have I gone from believing in the gospel of Jesus Christ to knowing it is true. Joseph Smith said after he saw Jesus Christ and God the father that he could not deny it. I haven't seen Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ with my eyes, but I've had many experiences and seen many things that I can't honestly say didn't come from God. I love this church with all my heart and the person that I've become through it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through time spent with my family. I know that families are so important to Heavenly Father. I also live my faith through service. I hope that anything good I do shows that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that that is what truly helps people to be happy and so that is why I am currently serving as a full time missionary in the Germany, Berlin mission. I also show my faith through church attendance, attending weekly meetings, and temple work.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?
