Hi I'm Micah Richins

I am Micah Richins.

About Me

Born and raised in Utah. I am 19 years old. I love the play sports. I love basketball, soccer, and most of all Paintball! I love to wakeboard as well, and love hot weather. I am currently serving a full-time 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in San Rafael, California; speaking Spanish. I love to help others and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to teach and help others learn about the good news of the Gospel. I want to go to the University of Utah after my mission ends. I would love to study Radiology, or become a technician in the field of Radiology. I have already attended Snow College for generals, and am still considering on returning.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon, simply because I have prayed to know the truth. I know, through the holy ghost, that the Book of Mormon is true. There were things that were not easy for me to accept, but through prayer and alot of studying, I have come to know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I learned for myself that this is the only true church, and only His church. Also, that in His church, there is a prophet. In the past I have made mistakes, as we all have. I have felt the lonely, dark, guilt that comes from the burden of sin. I know the emptiness that sin puts us in. Through those times, I have come to know that through the power of the atonement of Jesus Christ, we are freed. It is only by Jesus Christ, and the perfect and infinite sacrifice of him, that we can be cleansed. ". . .this is the way; and there is none other way nore name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God. And now, behold this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost. . ." -2 Nephi 31:21 I have learned that after all I have done to try to follow the steps of Jesus Christ, through trial and error, I have made my life so much more satisfying and successful. We must remember that Christ came to save us from our sins. Also that we must always be trying our best to follow the Savior. I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I have had my spiritual witness, and would invite anyone else to try for themselves. To study the Book of Mormon, and to pray to know if it is another testament of Jesus Christ. The true gospel of Jesus Christ has changed my life, and I know that it WILL change anyone elses who should want to follow the Saviors counsel.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time mission for the Church, and sharing about the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Northern-California. I am currently teaching in Spanish. I help others increase their faith in Jesus Christ and accept him as the Savior.
