Hi I'm Klayton Thompson

I'm from Alberta Canada,grew up in American Fork Utah. Serving a Mission is Salem Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well i'm a Mormon i've grown up in the church and have lived the majority of my life in utah. After i graduated from high school i went back home to canada to work on some beef ranches. considering my upbringing in utah, livin in canada was my first real big experience with people who have another faith then my own which opened my eyes in several ways. having that experence largely contributed to my choice to sereve a mission. Some people go on missions because they feel they should, i'm on a mission because i want to be here and i know that i'm out here doin the right things. Over the course of our lives we make lots of choices and if we look at where we are we can usually trace back the choices that got us there and i've looked back on these choices and glad they led me eventually to a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up in this Church. But there came a time where i had to find out for myself why i'm a mormon go on my "walk about" of self discovery and let go of the apron strings of my parents beleifs and formulate my own ideas. I know now for myself that this gosple is true i've studdied it out in my mind and i cannot deny the feelings i've felt that have born witness to me that this is the gosple of Jesus Christ and the lds Church is the same church that Christ established in his earthly minestry. I know that i'm not perefrect and i rely on the atonement of Jesus Christ to fill in where my works fall short. I know God is as real as ever and as visible as ever i know Jesus Christ came to this earth to do the will of his father and atone for our sins. I am greatful to be called a mormon and be a member of this church and a beliver i this gosple that has brought me so much comfort and strenght in my daily life. I guess i never really had a great "come to Jesus" moment but by line upon line i've found my faith and tetimony in this gosple and thats why i'm on a mission to bring others to know what i know.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by giving back to God as much as i can and doing my best to fallow the promtings of the lord. I do my best thats all the lord asks of us, to do all we can. I live my faith by being a missionary. And keeping the comandments as best as I can. I try to take on the atonement, as much as i can make that apart of my life. I'm doin my best to get and stay close to heavenly father. and as a missionary i'm trying to get others to build there relationship with Christ thats how i live my Faith just payin it Forward. Or tryin to at least.
