Hi I'm Shane

I grew up in Arizona. I am currently serving a mission in Arequipa, Peru. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving an LDS mission in Arequipa, Peru. It has been one of the best experiences of my life. During high school I played soccer, playing almost every position by my senior year. I am a Boy Scout and have earned the rank of Eagle. I love the outdoors and enjoy fishing, camping, hiking, and climbing. I also love most sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and was baptized at eight years old. However when I left for college my faith was tried, I no longer had to go to church just because my parents wanted me to. I went because I wanted to be there to learn and grow and because I was so much happier when I attended church meetings.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the church, which means I am voluntarily giving two years of my life to teach people about the gospel and serve them as much as possible. Each day my focus and purpose is to help people learn more about Christ and their Father in Heaven and become closer to them. I love every second of it.
