Hi I'm Luke

I am 18 years old, a future missionary in Chiclayo, Peru, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am 18 years old, I have four siblings, all of which are married and far older than me. I have 16 nieces and nephews and the number continues to grow. I have an interesting family which I would not change for anything. I love sports, especially basketball as well as music. I have been called to serve in the Perú, Chiclayo Mission and I report July 1, 2014

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I was baptized when I was eight and I am an Elder in the Melchizedek Priesthood now. I am a Mormon because I know with all of my heart that this is Jesus Christ's church and that he wants all of us to follow him and return to him as well as Heavenly Father. This church strenghthens all of us. If you strive to live like Jesus Christ he will help you through the hard trials as well as the little ones. He atoned for all of our sins so we did not have to suffer for them. He has an unconditional love for all of us that one can feel if they let him into their lives. I believe in the Book of Mormon I know that Joseph Smith was called of God to translate that wonderful book in order to bring back the Gospel of our Savior. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a called prophet of God and his counsel will help you in all areas of your life.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example of Christ and every day I try to find ways to serve others, which is in reality serving God.
