Hi I'm Chris Brown

Serving a LDS mission in the Tahiti Pape'ete Mission

About Me

I am a senior in High School. I just received my mission call to serve in the Tahitit Pape'ete Mission. I love to run, I've been running track for the past 6 years, and cross country for the past 2. I also participate in Speech and Debate at my High School. My favorite classes at Ogden High are french, and U.S government. The plan is to go to BYU Idaho after my mission

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and so I've been around church members since I was born. But, I think more recently as I've matured, I've seen for myself the happiness that living righteously brings. Whether it be through genuine repentance, serving others, or keeping myself clean from drugs alcohal or immorality. I go to Ogden High School, which is an inner city school where drugs and profane language are pretty abundant. Watching those around me engage in these things, I've been able to develop a testimony, that living righteously, though it can be hard, is worth it. It brings guidance, grace, love, happiness, and improvement. While living righteously is demanding, the joy it brings is worth it. Christ lives, and he died for me, he helps me to improve, His teachings are the way to happiness. That is why i am a Mormon

How I live my faith

Obviously I try to do my best in my callings. This includes blessing the sacrament, taking the sacrament to those who can't come to church, and helping the bishop where help is needed. I also have a calling to go home teaching, this is where my companion and I visit a certain family to share a lesson and make sure they're doing okay. Other than that, I try to show some kind of service throughout my day. Whether that be unloading the dishes for my mom, giving someone a ride home, or picking up a piece of trash. I used to volunteer at an elementary school to help with their play practice, I did that for a few months and it was a lot of fun.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Chris Brown
In short, Mormons believe in the Bible, because they believe in Jesus Christ. Christ lived, taught, and died. These events are recorded in the Bible, and can bring anyone closer to God. Show more Show less
