Hi I'm Michael

I like to give sincere and honest service. I "found out the truth for myself" and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 year old Missionary serving for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Before coming on my mission I would go hiking as often as I could, or sit down on the cold grass staring up at the night stars, or the brilliant moon. I worked as a painter for awhile, but I plan on going into business or engineering. My hobbies are, working with electronics, mechanics, reading, studying/analyzing, building, cooking, running, hiking, biking, and every kind of sports. I have participated from an early age in service, and many volunteer opportunities: Service is a big part of my life, I am an Eagle Scout and I LIVE by the motto and slogan "Do a Good Turn Daily" and "Be Prepared".

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to member parents in a family of 11 and went to church, but it wasn't until I made the choice for myself if this is "what I want to live", that I truly found my reason for why I am Mormon. I made an effort to finally start sincerely searching as any investigator of the church would, I began searching for answers to my life questions and how I could come closer to God. And I decided to ask God, for myself, if this is truly the right path for me. I remember the feeling of peace and comfort that washed over me, and I decided that I would follow, however long it took, I would do everything I needed to do to come closer to my true source of joy, peace, inspiration, and love. I want to share my testimony that I know that there is a God in Heaven, and he loves us all, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior, to pave the way for us to return again. I know that God restored His church through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and that we can partake of the abundant life, if we show our love for our Savior by keeping his commandments. I testify this true. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

Since I was 11 years old I remember coming to church 30 minutes early to help set up chairs and greet people coming to church at the doors, of my own free will. I have served as the secretary and as a counselor in my young mens groups. I have been a Representative for Young Single Adults and served as a home teacher and helped in many other church functions. I love sharing the gospel and helping anyone in need. I plan on giving service for the rest of my life. I have accepted the privilege of going on a mission and hope to help anyone and everyone I meet.
