Hi I'm Elder Kenneth McKenney

I live in Canada! :) I love singing, dancing, and having a blast! I am serving in the Canada Halifax mission and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a missionary currently serving in the beautiful Maritimes of Canada! Before, I used to serve in the Russian speaking Ukraine Donetsk Mission for about 16 months. At home, I live in the small city of Leduc, which is just outside of Edmonton. I am 20 years old. I have 2 younger brothers and both of my parents are from the Philippines originally. Right after my mission I plan to study architecture and design at a place called NAIT in Edmonton. I love singing whenever I can. I sang in my church choir, at school, and with my friends of course! :) I am a big fan of dancing and an even more bigger fan of Michael Jackson. I also love hanging out at the mall, camping, running, having a party and just hanging out with my family when I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a Mormon in the first place not just because my parents are Mormon, but ultimately because of the love that I feel from my Savior and Heavenly Father. When I became a member through the sacred ordinance of baptism, my choice of being a Mormon felt so right. It felt as if I had no worries in the world at all because of the assurance of leaning on His bright, everlasting gospel. I have never felt more happy than being in and living this wonderful gospel and being a Mormon. I continue to follow Christ because of the sheer joy and happiness that I feel as I keep his commandments and apply his teachings in my life. Although it may be hard sometimes to keep his commandments and just live life in general with all that we deal on a daily basis, I have Christ to look to when I feel I need help. He is always there to comfort and guide, I just need to get down on my knees and pray or read my scriptures or share his gospel and love to feel of His Spirit. When I choose the right I know that I am blessed with his Spirit always. Now as I serve a mission, I grow more excited in what blessings I will receive and the happiness that I will see in others as I help others come closer to Christ. Serving a mission for me is the best thing I can do for my Savior right now. After all, He has given me so much including family,friends, leaders, and all the tools that I need to succeed in this life and I want to share that knowledge withe others. Spread the love!! :)

How I live my faith

I just go and do. Christ has blessed my family and I so much, the least that I can do is share that with as many people possible. That is why I am serving a mission, to let others know of the love, strength and hope that comes from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I live my faith by showing Christ-like love through a friendly smile, a hug, speaking uplifting words and offering a helping hand to those when I can.There are so many ways! :) I try to go and do as the Savior did. He is our perfect example and I strive everyday to become a little more like Him.
