Hi I'm John Collins

I have lived around the world. I love making videos. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived all across the world because of my father's job. I have lived in California, Utah, Japan, England, South Korea, Sicily, then finally Naples, Italy. I have enjoyed my life around the world, and now I will be going back to the U.S. to serve a full time mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. I am really glad I have this opportunity to serve the Lord and share the gospel. I love this Church and will always be glad to share the gospel and endure to the end.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life. I am a Mormon because I love gospel truth about families. I can't wait to have an eternal companion and to be able to stay with my family forever. I love the thought of eternity, that there is no end. I find it hard to just even imagine that when we die we are just dead, gone, no more. So I choose to have faith that Jesus Christ's gospel is true. I have received a personal confirmation that the spirit is real and that it comforts us and guides us. I love this church and have faith in it.

How I live my faith

A great example of how I live my faith is by serving a two year mission. I will be serving in the Nevada Las Vegas West mission for two whole years. That's a long time, time that could be used for school and work, but I know that by sacrificing my time for the Lord he will bring blessings to me and my family. When I do personal scripture study I like to have a little notebook and pen nearby so that I can take side notes to share or remind of what I thought of as I read.
