Hi I'm Craig

Hi I'm Craig. I grew up in a large family in Southern California. I am currently serving as a full time missionary.

About Me

I have chosen to serve the Lord and go on a mission. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, and cherish the memories I have with them from before my mission. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Salt Lake City West Mission, despite originally being assigned to the Laoag Philippines Mission. I have received my visa and will be going to the Philippines in February of 2018. I know that my short time serving as a missionary in Salt Lake was divine and that I was meant to be here.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into the church. However, I know that it does not matter what gets you to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but rather, it's what makes you stay, that is truly important. For me, what made me stay was the confirmation and answers to my prayers provided by the Holy Ghost. Through fervent prayer I know for myself that Joseph Smith was a prophet, that this is the restored Church of Christ, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I believe that God has never stopped speaking to His children, and that Joseph Smith was the prophet of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and the feelings of peace, comfort, hope, and joy it brings into my life.

How I live my faith

I am a Ward Missionary in my ward. I love to go out with the missionaries and share with others that are learning about the gospel. It is a great experience to be able to share my belief in Christ with others.
