Hi I'm Kenny

Im from Washington State. Im serving a mission in Mesa, Arizona. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Im currently serving in the mesa arizona mission. Its been an eye opening experience to go out into the world and to be able to learn so much about myself and about others. It has been amazing to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ work in the lives of those that we come into contact with daily. I have been able to see our message truely change lives and help those who are in need. There is nothing quit like being able to be apart of something so special as changing a life, and bringing them happiness they didnt know they could have.

Why I am a Mormon

Ive been so blessed to have been raised in the church. My family members are all members has been so supportive my whole life. The Gospel and church has been the central focus of our lives and has been the thing that has cemented our family together. We had struggles and trials just like any family, but because of our faith, we were able to overcome anyting that we went through. But even with all of this support, I still had to know for myself that the church was true. It took a lot of effort and work to read the book of mormon, pray, and be patient as a sought my answer. At times it was discouraging because i wanted an answer right then and i was impatient. But with a lot of work and dilligence, i was able to finally receive a spiritual wittness that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and that the book of mormon was the word of God. As I look back now on that experience i have come to realize how much it means to me. I appreciate that i had to work and wait, because through that hard work i was able to gain a greater appreciation for the answer that i received. It means everything to me.

How I live my faith

Dedicating two years of my life to serving Our Heavenly Father and His children has thus far been the the greatest way that i have been able to show my appreciation for Him. Serving others, and helping them in their time of need has brought me more joy in my life than in any other way. Seeing them be lifted and strengthened because i was able to be the instrument in the hands of the Lord has been such a blessing to me. And it is amazing to see that as i seek to forget about myself and worry more about others, i am richly blessed as a result. I think that by serving a mission I have learned how to be more Christ-like, and i couldn't have learned this lesson in a better way. Truely the Lord was all about others, and not Himself. So as i go about doing good where ever i am, and helping my fellow brothers and sisters i feel that i am doing as Christ would do if he were here, and that that is the greatest way to show my faith.
