Hi I'm David

I'm a runner, I'm a ballroom dancer, I'm a missionary in Scotland/Ireland and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Elder Barney. I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Scotland and Ireland. I am currently serving in Ireland. Ireland has stolen my heart. I love doing this because I get to see the change that Jesus Christ and His restored gospel brings to peoples lives. I am a ballroom dancer, I started when I was about 13 and did it all through School. I plan to go back to it during College when I am finished with my missionary service.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to church but in my teens I felt like I needed to figure it out for myself. After a few years of going through motions, I finally avidly searched for the truth and found it in the church. Throughout my life almost nothing has come easy to me. I have struggled and struggled through even the most simplest of things and it was the same with coming to know that this church is true. It took me many times pleading with my Heavenly Father for a relief from guilt and a conviction that I was doing what is right. Finally I received my witness from His Holy Spirit. I love the gospel and know its true. I have a firm testimony that as we look for good in any situation we can find it in friends, family, peers, and total strangers. I love my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost with all my heart. I am especially thankful that things haven't come easy for me. The more I struggle for something the more it means to me.

How I live my faith

As a missionary I teach people about what I hold dear to my heart. That of course is Jesus Christ. Many people do not know who we are and why we are doing this, but the main reason is that we have felt the happiness that comes from the Gospel and we want everyone to feel this way!!
