Hi I'm Michael

I compose music, I play soccer. I hope to go in the Army and go special forces. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to play soccer, I was on a college team for some time. I love to compose music and I hope God will bless me with a career that will allow me to continue to do that. I worked in D.C. for a while and I love to hang out with me "Gangstas." I'm very funny and easy going. I'm on a mission in Mesa, AZ and I love teaching the gospel. I'm an Eagle Scout and I graduated High School at age 16.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a kid all I wanted to do was grow up and be a "big kid" so I graduated high school at age 16 and went to college. I messed up pretty bad and from there on everything just went down hill. I got kicked out of my parents home when I was 18 and I lived on the streets for 3 weeks, until the bishop of my ward found a place for me to stay. I lived with one of my Mormon friends and his parents, for about 10 months. I was raised into the church so I lived off of my parents testimony and not my own. During those 10 months I saw who I was becoming and I didn't want to be that person. I prayed to God to show me what I should do. I was trying to get into the military and I had a date set for my departer date for basic training. But some of the missionaries came by and told me that a mission would be better and I would receive more blessings if I served. I decided to go on a mission and to serve the Lord. I'm now on my mission in Mesa, AZ; and I love it out here. I'm so glad that I prayed to my Father in Heaven and asked for his help. I know that the gospel is true, and that you may know it is true also. If you will read and pray about the Book of Mormon the Holy Ghost will manifest the truth unto you. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that this is the true church once again established on the Earth. May God be with you and may his grace forever shine upon you.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others at all times and sharing my worldly goods with others whenever I can give them. I live my faith by serving my Lord and Savior, by serving a mission and bringing souls unto Christ. I live my faith by being an example at all times and in all places. I live my faith by doing the small things, like praying and reading the scriptures everyday.
