Hi I'm Teankum Conway

I've survived numerous open heart surgeries starting at 6 months and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

At six months old I was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot a congenital heart defect. Ever since that time my life has not been the same. At six months old I was life flighted out of the small town we lived to receive emergency medical care with doctors and my family not expecting me to make it; as at that point my whole body was shutting down. But by the grace and hand of God I made it through that day of surgery and many more to come. My life has not been easy having this condition to deal with; especially with not being able to do the all the activities the people around me can but through God I have been able to persevere and find the best in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I’m a Mormon not only because I was born into the faith but because I know it’s true. Just like everyone has to do I prayed to know which church was Gods church on the earth at this time and through the power of the Holy Spirit God let me know that this is his church. Also, through a modern prophet just like a Moses or a Noah we have had special spiritual truths restored about where we have come from, why we are here and where we are going that have helped me fully understand why I have the different trials in my life. I love this gospel with all my heart and I want to do Gods will and I know that this is the way to accomplish it and to have the most joy.

How I live my faith

In my life I try to give back to God the best that I can as He has saved my life on numerous occasions that I can count and I know at other times I can’t. Some of the ways I do is I help to share the message of Jesus Christ to those around me who have need off its message and encouragement. I had the opportunity at the beginning of 2010 to serve a mission to help other receive the knowledge of Jesus Christ in North Carolina for about 9 months. Now in my area I’m over the efforts to help people find Jesus Christ and receive all that He has for them. As I serve in Christ church I feel closer to Christ and I know that this is where I’m supposed to be.
