Hi I'm Troy Owen Mecham Jr

I have lived in Utah my whole life.I am serving a mission in Fresno California, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old, Right now i am on my mission in Fresno California Spanish Speaking. I Enjoy playing basketball, drawing, playing video games, hunting, fishing, working out, hanging out with my friends, watch movies, listen to music, and write poems. I am not sure what i wanna be after my mission i am struggling with finding my choice. I want to be a Video game programmer, film maker, artist, writer, firefighter, or designer. I am the second oldest, my mom and dad are divorced i live with my dad and my mom ( step mother ) My dad is a LDS member and he inspires me and helps me know the way God wants for me and i am grateful for that. I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers between both families. I love the LDS church and i know it is true with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

Well my whole life i was a member of this church but not very active. When my dad married the wife he is currently with we started attending more. I always knew that this church was true but i didnt have a strong testimony of the gospal. Throughout high school i was kinda reblious and didnt want to be very active and i was headed down the wrong path when i gratuated highschool people kept asking me if i would go on a mission and i either said no or i am not sure about it and i always came up with excuses. Then one day after general conferance my dad asked me if i wanted to go to preisthood session of conferance at the stake center and i said i wasnt feeling up to it and he said to bad you are going anyway go get dressed ha something like that. So as i was getting dressed i was so mad because i didnt want to go. Well when we got there and started listening to the talks i was actually listening and was in tune with the spirit, Jeffery r Holland was giving a talk called ' we are all enlisted" it changed my life, i knew that i needed to change and become a better person and that i needed to serve a mission without no doubt. I stared thinking about the future and my family I know i needed to be an example for my wife and kids in the future so they would make good choices. That talk by Jeffery R Holland changed my life for the better and i will never look back. i repented for my sins and now i am on a mission, i know my savior lives i grow to know more of him eachday and i want to become more like the savior and abtain the attributes he has. I Will never be perfect in this life and if i make a mistake i will repent for it, and this wouldnt be possible without the atonment. The purpose of this life is to become like Jesus Christ and to help as many people we can, share our joy. That is Why i am Mormon, I am grateful for my dad, that he kept pushing me to be better, i am grateful for my wonderful family. I say these things in the name of our savior Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

Well i attend church, i am on my mission, i read and study the scriptures and pray often and i serve others around me. My desire is always to become better and to be that person that i need to be for my future family, and most importantly to be like Heavenly Father. This Church is where i find my peace and joy.
