Hi I'm Royal

And I'm a missionary!

About Me

I graduated from high school in the small town of Kuna, Idaho in the Spring of 2012. One week after graduation, I left home for a job in Preston, Idaho. That summer, I received my mission call to Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine! There are a lot of things I love to do: hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, mountain biking, dirt biking, rugby, skiing - I could go on. But's it's all going on hold for two years while I serve the Lord in Ukraine and share the things that bring me true, lasting joy.

Why I am a Mormon

To put it simply: because it's true. The Book of Mormon is true, Thomas Monson is prophet, and Jesus Christ really does live. There's plenty of reasons why you should believe us, and there's plenty of reasons why you shouldn't; intellectuals can argue all day long about the matter. But when you get that feeling in heart as you read the Book of Mormon, as you listen to the missionaries, as you pray to Heavenly Father - that's a sure knowledge, and it comes straight from God. When you've got that, then there's no question anymore.

How I live my faith

I spending my own money in order to go to strange country, speak a strange language, and work 24/7 for two solid years - and I've never been more excited for anything in my life! I don't know exactly what's in store for me, but I am looking forward to whatever it is. I leaving my family, friends and home for two years. I am putting off schooling, a career, dating, hobbies, and more, because the Lord has called me to serve Him.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The missionaries will tell you the most wonderful news in the world: Jesus Christ lived, suffered, and died for you, and He lives again! They'll tell you about His church, and Heavenly Father's plan for all of us. Their message will be a message of joy and happiness, inviting you to learn, grow, and experience the power of Christ for yourself. Show more Show less
