Hi I'm Kynan Pearson

I'm a Mormon and I'm currently serving a mission in Papua New Guinea

About Me

I'm a 25 year old male who loves his sports rugby, touch footy, American football, basketball. You name it I like to play it. I enjoy spending time with family, watching girly movies with Nan, watching all the other movies, mucking around with friends, institute, being a guy, hanging out, swimming, chilling at the beach, dancing and most other things but I have given all that up for 2 years to come and serve and teach the people of Papua New Guinea as a missionary. I now teach, serve, help and become friends with the beautiful people in Papua New Guinea as a missionary, a representative of the church and a disciple of Christ. I and the other missionaries work, sweat and walk mountains just to be able to help some of these people know about more about Jesus Christ and his Gospel and Heavenly Father who loves them so much but sometimes they just don't know. I come from a mix of a family where I have 2 mother figures (my grandmother and mother), my father left us when I was young but my only father figure (grand father) Robert has done so much for me that I just seemed to turn out okay :). I am not perfect as a missionary, as a son or even as a person but I try. I'm grateful for my interesting family and especially my mother who did the best she could when she was so young. I am who I am because of my family and what the Lord has done with my life.....without him I am nothing!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been Mormon all my life. While I have been going with to church with my parents since I can remember it was always because it was what THEY thought was right, so I kind of took there word for it. Until I was 15 at a young mens camp where everyone was sharing their testimonies and that they knew the church was true, that the Book of Mormon was scripture and Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. I was too wondering why I did not know the same thing, I had a desire to know and at that very moment I felt a huge warmth in my heart, I believe it to be the Holy ghost telling me this is where I'm meant to be and meant to be doing and that this gospel, Jesus Christ lives and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was restored as the same Church that Jesus Christ organised. I know that if you read the Book of Mormon and desire to know whether it's true or not and whether this Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. You can find out for yourself, just the way I did.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example of Jesus Christ in all that I do. He is at the head of this Church as the name states "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints". I try to follow his example love all those around me, help everyone (whether it be family, friend or enemy). I am not perfect and I don't do it all the time but I continually strive to do this every day. I go to Church every Sunday to learn more about Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and this Gospel that I love. Everything that I learn on Sunday and during the week is what I try to implement in my life. I love my faith and I believe in all that it teaches and I will try to live it every day!
