Hi I'm Mike

I love sports especially running and playing basketball. I enjoy helping others and doing service. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to run a lot. In high school I ran both track and cross country and I was blessed enough to get a college scholarship. I completed my freshman year of college and then in August 2012 I started my 2 year mission. When I finish my mission I will go back to school and hopefully continue running. I have two brothers and three sisters. One brother and one sister are married. I have the cutest nephews and nieces in the world. I love spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and was baptized when I was eight. When I was about 14 I participated in a celebration to dedicate a new temple and it was one of the most spiritual moments in my life. I know that the church is true and that it can bring great happiness to people who truly live it. I have seen it change my life and the lives of people around me. It is a great blessing to be a member of the church. I know what a blessing the church is for families. I also know how great it is to have prophets and apostles to lead and guide the church. As a missionary I get to see it bless the lives of others everyday. Without it I don't know where I would be. It is the greatest thing in my life. I have experienced the greatest joys in my life as I have been doing something to help others increase their faith in Jesus Christ. Without a doubt I know that the church is true and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have a strong belief that He loves each and every one of us greater than we can comprehend and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to make it possible for us to return to live with him. I know that Jesus Christ has restored His Church upon the earth today through Joseph Smith. I know it is true and that is why I am a member of this church and why you should too.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary sharing what I believe with others. I live the gospel by always trying to read the scriptures and pray and I also know it is very important to always attend church. I love to share the gospel with others because I know it has made a great difference in my life and I know that it can change the lives of others as well. I really love to read the scriptures especially the Book of Mormon because they bring so much happiness and peace to my life. Every time that I read I can feel the Spirit telling me that it is true.

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

As missionaries we share a message about Jesus Christ and about His gospel. We teach about our Heavenly Father and how he has a plan for us to return to Him. Our purpose is to help others come closer to Christ and to gain a greater faith in Him and in our Heavenly Father. We invite people to study, ponder, and pray about the things we share to learn for themselves the truth of it. We know as people do these things the Holy Ghost will manifest the truth of the things we teach. Show more Show less
