Hi I'm McKay

I am the youngest of eight kids. I love my family, friends, and sports. I am a missionary in Recife, Brazil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am involved in a lot of things. I have always been active in my community and sports teams throughout high school. I play football, basketball, and baseball in my spare time. I am going to college and I love it. I have completed my Eagle Scout award and been involved in scouting my whole life. I am the youngest of eight kids so family is very important to me. I am currently serving as a missionary in Recife, Brazil and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it, I live it, and I love it. I know this is the true church with all my heart. I know that God lives and Jesus is the Christ. I know that God communicates with the members of the church today, as in times of old, through living prophets and apostles. I know that prophets receive guidance and instruction from God for each of us today, as well as the church as a whole. This knowledge helps me have faith and know that God is mindful of everthing I am doing in my life. He knows my strengths, he knows my struggles. God has created a plan for me to fulfill my ultimate goal; to return to live with him and my family forever. I know that the Book of Mormon is the truest book on earth. I know that every time I read it, I feel the Spirit so strongly giving me affirmations that what I have learned is true. I know that the power of the priesthood is on the Earth today, and it blesses my life so much. This church is so true and it has changed my life!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching a class of 11 year olds every Sunday. It is amazing to see the knowledge these kids have at such a young age. My dad and I cook for all of the ward parties and gatherings, such as Halloween, Easter, and Christmas. We like to cook for big groups of people and have gotten pretty good at it. I try my hardest to be an example to all of those people around me. Being a Mormon is so awesome and I love it so much!
