Hi I'm Jon-Tyrell K. Adolpho

I'm a Mormon! Hi my name is Tyrell

About Me

I was born in Heidleberg Germany, moved to Clovis New Mexico, raised in Okinawa Japan/Mayville North Dakota and left on my mission from Italy. The only reason I've lived all around the world is because I am a "Military Brat" (It's a term of endearment it's not offensive) meaning I'm the child of someone in the military (AIRFORCE!!!!). I like helping people which is why I choose to serve a mission!!! Figured there is no better way to help people than by bringing them unto Christ. I've known sense I was very young that I wanted to serve a mission in Okinawa Japan and I knew that was what I was meant to do. Then at 19 I was called to the Great Salt Lake City in Utah. So I was a little wrong about where I was meant to serve but I couldn't be more happy serving here in Utah. Honestly this is all I can think of to put up here so thats cool. Have a great day and don't forget to pray.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of personal revelation, scripture study and the feeling of love when I enter into the chapel and temple. Another source of testimony to me is in the Book of Mormon which is scripture just like the Holy Bible. The Book of Mormon gives me a feeling of comfort and love which I could never hope to describe. I love God and our Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I was called to teach primary on Sundays and I used to prepare lessons usually on Saturday or Friday depending on my schedule I really enjoyed teaching crazy 9 year olds and now I'm serving a mission n stuff.

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

Jon-Tyrell K. Adolpho
It is impossible to put into words the full meaning of the Atonement, which is the most important and most transcendent event in the history of the world. Through His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross, the Savior atoned for our sins. This is the good news for all people! We can’t fully understand how Jesus suffered for our sins. But we know that in the Garden of Gethsemane, the weight of our sins caused Him to feel such agony that He bled from every pore (Doctrine and Covenants 19:16-17). Later, as He hung upon the cross, Jesus again felt the weight of our sins even as He willingly suffered painful death by one of the most cruel methods ever known. Jesus the Christ, page 462 states, “It seems, that in addition to the fearful suffering incident to crucifixion, the agony of Gethsemane had recurred, intensified beyond human power to endure. In that bitterest hour the dying Christ was alone, alone in most terrible reality.” Jesus Christ did what only He could do in atoning for our sins. To make His Atonement fully effective in our individual lives, we must have faith in Christ, repent of our sins, be baptized and confirmed by one having authority, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, obey God’s commandments, receive sacred ordinances, and strive to become like Him. As we do these things through His Atonement, we can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father forever. Show more Show less
