Hi I'm Gavin

I'm the oldest of 7 kids, I'm an eagle scout, I just recieved my mission call to Paris France. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and I love to play sports, particularly baseball. I have been playing on high school, select and church teams my whole life. I also enjoy playing the piano, working out in the gym, and spending time with my friends and family. I am the oldest of 7 kids and I am an eagle scout. Currently I am in my junior year of college working on a biology degree. After earning my biology degree I have ambitions to attend optometry school and become an eye doctor.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and I love everything about it. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings me peace and happiness in my life. It brings me closer to my family and helps me live life to the fullest. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church on earth today with the fullness of the gospel and I know that Jesus Christ is the head of it. I know the Book of Mormon to be true and to be the word of God. I know that we have a true prophet on the earth today who receives revelation from God; just as prophets of old. Because of my belief of these things, I have decided to dedicate 2 years of my life to teach others about Christ’s church so they too can receive the blessings and happiness that come from it.

How I live my faith

I recently received a mission call to Paris France and I leave in Decemer of 2012. I am excited to learn french and live in France for two years to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Right now I am active in my church as a ward missionary. This means I go out with other members and talk to people in our community about our faith and invite them to participate in activities. I also enjoy my responsibility as a home teacher which allows me to visit with members of my ward and get to know them better. My ward plans lots of activities, so there is always some type of service project or activity going on; it’s lots of fun!
