Hi I'm Elder Jones

I am an Eagle Scout. I am a missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived all over the United States and Asia. I am a high school graduate. I am an Eagle Scout. I love backpacking, especially in the Midwest and California. I want to go to college to major in history. I am serving a mission in the California Sacramento Mission. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church all my life. Through the years of my youth I read the Book of Mormon and bore my testimony at every opportunity that I had. I had always wanted to serve a mission for my church. But, the question was when? The answer came when I was attending the Priesthood Session of the 2016 General Conference. While I was listening to the words of the General Authorities I was overcome by the Spirit to look at the copy of the Book of Mormon I had with me. When I looked at the Book of Mormon it glowed with the brightness of the sun. I then had the impression that I couldn't delay, but must go on my mission as soon as possible. I have never looked at the Book of Mormon at same again. From that moment on I had a purpose that I needed to get into the mission field as soon as possible. I know that I am serving a mission in the California Sacramento Mission because that's where the Lord needs me. He has a purpose for me and I am fulfilling the call to the work of the Lord and His gospel.

How I live my faith

When I was a youth I was called to lead 12- 13 year olds, 14 - 15 year olds and 16 - 18 year olds through high school. I learned how to be more Christlike through the example of many people and leaders.
