Hi I'm Kendall Awtry

I'm a photographer. Im serving in the Oregon Portland Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports. I love working on cars and learning about how they perform. I love singing at church. I believe that music is a great way to express feelings. My family and friends are very dear to me and I cherish the great moments I have with them. I believe that having God in my life has always given me a better perspective about my purpose on the earth. I love to help people whenever I get the chance. I am currently serving a mission in the Oregon Portland Mission. Being a representative of Jesus Christ, I feel a great importance to share what I know to be true and live my life according to what the Savior would. Jesus Christ is the perfect example of love, service, obedience, diligence, and purity and I choose to live like Him and the Father.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why i'm a Mormon and the reason i've been a member my life is because I know that God is real that I know He loves His Children. I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ with all my heart. I can testify that Joseph Smith did see God the Father and Jesus Christ and he did translate the golden plates. I know where I want to be in the next life and I plan to be in the presence of Them in heaven. I learn so much when I read the Book of Mormon and I know that it is Another Testament of Jesus Christ and that it is comparible to the Bible. I know we are all human and we all make mistakes, but through repentance and the Atonement, we can be forgiven of our sins.

How I live my faith

Before I went on my mission, I got the opportunity to go with the missionaries, three times a week for about six months. I met so many people and they told us what they believe in and where they came from, why they believe what it is they believe, and I got to help them grow their faith in Jesus Christ. I strive to be just like the missionaries and studied more in and about the Book of Mormon so that when the times comes that I got my mission call, I could be able to teach the truth. I tried to put myself in places the Lord would want me to be in.
