Hi I'm JP

I love to run and play basketball. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have four older brothers and a younger sister. My family moved to Japan when I was a year old, and we lived there for four years. I just graduated from high school. There, I ran cross country and track and I'm planning to run in college. I love the outdoors and things like camping, hiking, climbing, fishing, and backpacking. I love all sports, especially basketball. I also love to sing (although I'm not very good at it), and I play the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's restored church on the Earth. Even though I grew up in a family of Mormons, I had to learn this for myself. It took prayer, studying the Book of Mormon, attending church, and striving to live the commandments of God. My testimony developed over many years, step by step, and I am still learning! More than anything, I know that Jesus is the Christ, that He suffered and died for me, and that through Him, I can be saved.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a full-time, two-year mission to Budapest, Hungary. I also live my faith through prayer, through worshiping at church each Sunday, and through providing service for others.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Paying that money is a show of faith to our Heavenly Father. We show that we are willing to obey Him, and that we believe that we will bless us for obedience. The Lord has promised incredible blessings for paying that 10%. The money is used to progress the work of the Lord here on Earth. It is used for humanitarian aid, for building chapels, and many more good causes. Show more Show less
