When did you become a missionary?
August 16 2017
What kind of things did you do before becoming a missionary?
I worked at a call center and attended Brigham Young University. I finished 3 semesters at BYU and studied Linguistics. After my mission I still need to complete 4 semesters of college to earn my degree. I also taught taekwondo at a dojo in my hometown and taught tennis at my local high school.
Would you teach us about your family?
My family is me, my mom, my grandfather, and my grandmother.
What have you learned from your family?
I learned the importance of diligence. I've learned that the greatest joy in life comes from serving your fellow men, and I learned how to build a relationship with God, my Heavenly Father.
In your experience as a missionary so far what left an impression on you?
As I've met, talked with, taught, and served various people, I learned that although our interests, culture, and life experience maybe different we are all brothers and sisters. I've learned that no matter what struggles you are going through, worries you may have, or mistakes you may have made, we can overcome all of it through Jesus Christ. We can all find peace and joy in him no matter our circumstances.
When did you become Christian?
I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the age of eight after I received the sacred ordinance of baptism. However, I had begun to build my faith in Jesus Christ long before that through watching the example of my Mother and Grandparents and reading The Book of Mormon
Why did you choose to become a missionary?
I became a missionary because I know that this church is God's true church restored on the earth, that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of all the earth, and that God loves all of his children and wants them all to have an opportunity to accept His Gospel. I became a missionary to help other's feel the same Joy and Happiness that I have felt because of the Gospel.
