Hi I'm Richard Keefer

I am an Eagle Scout, I love helping others, I'm a full-time missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love the outdoors! That being said I love camping! I have found camping, for me, is one of the best activities that I can do to strengthen the bonds with my family and friends. I have done one year of College, I studied at Glendale Community College. I plan on returning to school when I get home from my mission. I am currently serving in the Australia Sydney North Mission. By the time I get home I hope to decide what I want to do for my career. I have three choices. First is to become a Registered Nurse, second to become a physician and last to join the U.S. Air Force and become a Pilot or Medical Core. A big thing I did before I came on My mission was work in the Cinemas. I was hired shortly after graduating from High School. I worked all through the summer and winter. This was a very awesome experience! Due to the high standards and values of the church, other employees and my superiors took notice. In a very short time I was extended a promotion. This opening in the job was envied by everyone and many were interviewed for the position, including employees who have been there far longer than I.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found the truth. I have felt the spirit and could not hold back the desire to become part of Christ's church. My Testimony was as small as I felt the spirit in the beginning but now line after line I have waxed strong in the gospel. I know this church is true and holds the fulness of the everlasting gospel, I believe that Joseph Smith restored the church and brought forth the Book of Mormon which I also know to be true and is another testimony on Jesus Christ. I love my saviour and redeemer Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a mission for the Lord. I am currently serving in the Australia Sydney North Mission. I live my faith by example. In fact I follow the same standards of George A. Smith, that the first priority is to keep all the Lords commandments and second priority is to share the gospel. I Live my faith by following the teachings in Doctrine And Covenants 121:33-46. I find a lot of my strength in reading scriptures. I live my faith by keeping it a part of my everyday life. By keeping it a part of me it assures me that I will always do the right thing and be a example just as Jesus Christ was an Example for all of us.
