Hi I'm Michael

I love hunting, hiking, snowboarding, and serving the Lord and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and am serving a mission for 2 years in Raleigh, North Carolina mission. I have the wonderful opportunity to learn and teach in my mission language which is Spanish. I also love to serve and teach among the english speaking people I am serving around as well. I love outdoors and spending time with my family. I am the oldest of five brothers! We are all very close! Most people are shocked when they hear this but my Mom loves having 5 momma's boys! We are all very strong in the church my younger brother has also chosen to serve a mission and is in the Philippians now. I love the outdoors and am a avid hunter. I love action sports like paintball, rock climbing, rappelling, snowboarding, and kyacking. I love working on my Jeep with my dad before my mission. I am also a workaholic and have held several jobs before my mission. After my mission I plan on going to college and hopefully one day I will find out what I want to be when I grow up!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and I know it is true. It is another testiment of Jesus Christ and it clearifies the doctrines taught in the Bible. I also know that the Bible is the word of god as long as it is translated correctly. I also have a testimony of the atonement of Jesus Christ and I know that no matter what mistakes I make I can be forgiven and grow closer to my Father in heaven. I am so thankfull for the questions Joseph Smith had and know that he was a tool that our Father in heaven could use to restore the gospel to the earth today. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has Prophets and Apostles that receive revelation for our days here on this earth today like the Prophets of old. I know that Prophet Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet and that he is the mouth piece for the Lord here on the earth. I know I am a member of the only true church of God. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I know there is no other way into heaven than through him. I know that this Church is the same church Christ established while he was on the earth. I know that my Savior lives and that he wants me to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I was heavily involved in scouting and I have achieved my Eagle scout award. I have also achieved my duty to god award. I have given countless of hours of service in my community and church and am still serving in the areas where i am called to serve. I am serving my mission in Raleigh North Carolina mission I am currently in the Dunn, North Carolina area and love teaching in Spanish and English of course! I have also served in the Wallace and Clinton, North Carolina area. I love serving my Lord, and Savior, Jesus Christ! I chose to live my faith and be the best person I can be because it is what my Savior would want me to do! I live my faith by follow the example of Jesus Christ and by follow the counsel of a LIVING day Prophet! I follow not because I am blind but because I can truly see, I know I am truly free by living the commandments of God. On my mission I have the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone I come into contact with. I am truly the luckiest person alive to be able share with everyone something that has blessed my life so much.
