Hi I'm Carter Jones

I grew up in California and I love to learn new things and Cycle in the mountains. I am an LDS Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Carter Jones and I have lived in California my entire life. However, half way through my senior year in high school my family moved to Heber City Utah because my dad got a new job. One of my passions is road cycling, I own a Giant road bike and I have ridden thousands of miles on it. I did a 450 mile bike ride in Colorado when I was 16 and that was an amazing experience. I have one brother and three sisters and I am the oldest sibling in my family. After I serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day Saints in Scottsdale Arizona I will be attending BYU, (Brigham Young University) to study microbiology. eventually I would like to be a surgeon, specifically focusing on orthopedics or oncology.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the doctrines the church teaches is true. I have been a member of the church since I was 8 years old. One of the reasons that I continue to go is because I love the feelings that the church brings into my life. I know that this church is true and I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and that He wants the best for us, His children. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that is contains words that help us in this day and age. I know that Thomas S Monson is the true and living prophet upon the earth today and that his words lead and guide the church. i know that God so loved the world that He sent His only Begotten Son, and that He, Jesus died for all of our sins so that we can return to the presence of God and have eternal salvation. I know that all the teachings of the church are true and I know that as we keep the commandments that we are blessed in our lives. I am a Mormon because I know this church is true and I love the way it blesses my life.

How I live my faith

In my Ward I was called to be a family search and indexing consultant. this means that I was assigned to teach people how to do family history work and how to use the technology that allows people to do family history and index records. this involves teaching several families over a period of a month. I was also called to be an assistant in the priest quorum. this means that I helped plan young mens activities and help with the organization of the young mens.
