Hi I'm James Facer Jr.

I'm a Texan. I love my family, friends, and basketball. I'm a missionary in Fresno, California. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second to last child of a big, loving family that I wouldn't trade for anything. I am a very chill and happy person. I'm happy to just stay inside, or go and do cool things. I love basketball, football, soccer, tennis, wake boarding, snowboarding, the beach, and doing anything with family or friends. As long as I'm with the people I love, I don't care what I do. I've always enjoyed music, movies, food, family-games, traveling, and just having fun. I am serving my church mission in Fresno, California. When I return home, I will attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I want to be an Orthodontist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ and have an unwavering faith in Him. I have prayed and gained a testimony that this church is His church. I live a more uplifting and happier life by being a member of the one true church that was restored through the power of Jesus Christ, and is lead by a living prophet. I feel the incredible love of the Savior and the power of His Atonement more fully. There is no other religion that can provide so much love, peace, sense of belonging, and spirituality. And that is why I am a Mormon; because it is God's church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being someone that my Heavenly Father can count on. I attend church every week, I serve in church callings, I learn about and strengthen my faith every day, and I am serving a 2 year mission for the service of God and His children. I'm serving in the California Fresno Mission, which is the best experience I've ever had! Teaching the Restored Gospel has become one of my favorite things. From my experiences as a missionary I have learned that almost nothing brings me as much happiness as teaching the Restored Gospel and seeing people's lives change through the power of the Holy Ghost and the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I live my faith by teaching what I know to be true.
