Hi I'm Christopher Hanna

I am from Southern California. I'm going to serve a mission in the Congo. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Newport Beach, California and am studying in Idaho. I am a student at BYU Idaho and I am studying economics. I'm originally from Newport Beach, California in Orange Country. I love the beach, warm weather, Boy Scouts, and having fun with my family. I have 5 brothers and 2 sisters. Some of my hobbies include politics, stock investing, and playing the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to an understanding for myself that the things that are taught in the Mormon Church are true. I have read the Book of Mormon and have prayed and have received a spiritual confirmation that the Book of Mormon is true and that the Church is true. Every time that I truly read the Book of Mormon and serve others I receive that same confirmation of truth and goodness.

How I live my faith

I live my religion by being the kind of person Jesus and God want me to be. I study the Book of Mormon and the Bible to become closer to God and I apply the things I learn into all aspects of my life. I am currently preparing to serve a two-year mission for the Church in the Republic of Congo, Brazzaville Mission. I will be speaking French and I am so excited to serve and teach the good people of Africa!

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Christopher Hanna
The current Mormon prophet is Russell M. Nelson. He is a retired heart surgeon and was the former President of the Twelve Apostles before becoming prophet after the passing of his predecessor President Thomas S. Monson. President Nelson has two counselors President Oaks and President Eyring. They make up the highest governing body in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and lead and guide the Church by revelation given by God. Show more Show less
