Hi I'm Kyal Allphin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, Im Kyal, as my profile says. I am serving a mission right now. Im in Oakland California. I was born in Hayward California, which is actually in my mission. When i was eight my family moved to Provo Utah and when i was a freshman my family built a house for four years in Highland Utah and they are currently living there. While im not on a mission I love to wakeboard, snowboard, ski, and just hang out. On my mission I gained a new love for running. And Im a Mormon! Haha. Im 23 Years old and ya that is pretty much it. I love my family like most people do and I love friends. And music. I love music.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I am a Mormon because its the best!! Seriously though, for the first 19 years of my life I didnt really know what our religion was all about. I just went along for the ride with my family. I had some amazing things happen that I knew had to be God but just thought life and Church were two different things. In the last couple of years I have been able to see how the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been an amazing influence on everything that I do in life. Without it I dont know where I would be right now. For sure not on a mission. I love being a "mormon" because we are in such a great place to be able to serve other people. That is what brings me the most happiness, serving others. The Gospel of Jesus Christ helps me to live a life that I know God would approve of. I try my best to always work on becoming better each day. The Church helps me to do that. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Well as of right now like I mentioned before, I am serving a mission. It is the hardest and also the best thing I have ever done in my life. I have grown so much in ways that only a mission could help me grow. Every day we go out and talk to people about our church and help them to come closer to Christ. This is the most rewarding work there is. Seeing people make changes in their lives and that makes them happier. I live my faith by living the Gospel every day by repenting of my mistakes, and always trying to stay worthy for the Holy Ghost to be with me at all times. I truly believe that when We are in the service of others, We are actually serving God.
