Hi I'm Michael Ballif

I was born in Utah. I was a student, but now I'm a missionary serving in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Mission.

About Me

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and currently I am a missionary in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Mission. Before I came on my mission, I was attending college, with an emphasis in History. I enjoyed reading classic novels (War and Peace, anyone?) and I also enjoyed creating my own stories. I also like learning more about the world around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in this Gospel with all of my heart, mind, and strength.

How I live my faith

I am an Elder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, dedicating two years of my life to the service of the Church and Heavenly Father. I strive each day to live the missionary code of conduct, as well as searching for those that are willing to hear the invitation to come unto Christ.
