Hi I'm Kyle Robert Barnes

I was born in Japan, I'm a Missionary, Love the outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up my whole life as far as i can remember in Page, Arizona. While there i learned a love for the outdoors particularly Hiking and Camping. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister and two parents who raised me right. I attended College at UVU in Orem, Utah last year but am not quite sure what i want to go into yet. I'm currently out on a two year mission in the Utah Ogden Mission. I absolutely love the opportunity to be out here and to share the gospel with everyone. When i return home I intend to return back to Utah Valley in Orem Utah and continue my schooling.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up into the Church but it wasn't until my teenage years that i developed my own testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. Once i learned for myself it was true i knew that i needed to do all i can to live up to the expectations the Lord has set for us. Knowing for myself that Jesus Christ died for me so that i can live with my family for eternity has been one of the biggest pushes in my life to live the gospel. I know life isn't easy and at times you can knock heads with your family but they are a huge blessing in my life. Through them i'm able to truly be myself and become the type of person God knows i can be. They help me reach my true potential and help me set goals for the future. I love them with all of my heart. I know that the Savior died for us and because he died we to can live again with our families for eternity.

How I live my faith

I try and live my faith many ways. I am serving a two year Mission because i know this Church is true, and the blessings associated with it are irresistible. I want to help everyone hear this message so they to can come closer to their Savior Jesus Christ. The most important way though that i live my faith is by example. Jesus Christ showed us the way to live and he expects me to follow him. So i strive every day to try and become more and more like the Savior. He doesn't expect me to be perfect, and believe me I'm not, but i try my best to live the commandments and do as Jesus has directed us so one day I can partake of the greatest blessing of all, Eternal Life.
