Hi I'm KC

I'm currently living in Utah. I've just been called to serve a mission in the Baltic region. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born in Osaka, Japan and lived there until my family and I moved here in Utah when I was about six years old. I love swimming, backpacking, biking, just anything that keeps me moving. I'm currently working at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City Utah where I work as a Surgical UA. I am attending Salt Lake Community College completing all of my general credits.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My mother is a convert from Japan where as my father has also always been a member from Oregon. Although I have been raised in the teachings of the church, I have not always had a strong testimony of the truth. When you have attended church once a week for as long as you can remember, it is easy to go throughout a routine without a conscious effort. At that point my testimony of the gospel consisted of the testimonies that my parents have shared with me. It wasn't until the time came when I had to decide for myself if I wanted to serve a mission, that the truth of the gospel of Christ was made know unto me. I knew that It would be expected form my parents and my friends to serve a mission but I did not know if I wanted to serve a mission. I filled out the missionary application without much determination. One night I decided to pray and find out for myself if this mission was the right choice for me but more importantly to find out for myself if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true church on the Earth. When my call to serve finally came, I discovered that I was called to serve in the Baltic mission teaching the gospel in the Russian language. As I continued to read that call, the spirit came upon me so strongly I did not think I would be able to contain myself. At that moment I knew without a doubt in my mind that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the absolute truth and that serving a mission is truly what I need to be doing at this point it my life.

How I live my faith

I have developed my friends within my ward. It is so good to know that no matter where you go there is always a church where the people have the same beliefs as your self. There is plenty of service to go around in our ward. It is not uncommon to see that there is a member with; help moving, needs with there yard, or even assistance in getting the sacrament. To know that I am a part of something bigger than myself makes serving my fellow man a tender part of how I live my faith.
