Hi I'm Jack Murray

I was born in Oklahoma and have lived here my whole life being active in the church. I love the gospel and the church.

About Me

I've lived in the same house my whole life in the same town and same state. I have four older brothers, two step brothers and one step sister. My older brother is 30, 27, 25, 23. My parents got a divorce when i was three years old. All my brothers and two close cousins have served a mission along with my father.

Why I am a Mormon

I hardly have any member friends and i see how their parents have raised them and the way my family raised me. The Church's guide lines to live your life and raise your kids can and do change the lives of every person and family who embrace them. My life has been formed and molded by the church and the members within it and i see how much further mentally and maturely. Today in the world i feel most people are living on the level of earth, mentally. Growing up in the Church i live in the but don't live "in" the world. My eyes are opened to different views and are lead by the Spirit which many people in the world can say they do but really don't. My life is blessed more then i can see and appreciate, i want everyone to feel what i feel and live how i live.

How I live my faith

I live in a town with 50,000 people with maybe 700 members. I was the most well known LDS member in my high school so I had the opportunity to be an example to many curious peers. I believe in showing your faith thrown examples and service.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Each missionary is responsible for his own money to pay for his/her mission. The missionary can receive help through community. Show more Show less
