Hi I'm Euan Mckenzie

I grew up in Germany and England. I love my family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

So I was actually born in Scotland, moved to Germany when I was 3, lived there for 11 years and then moved to England for 5 years, but am currently serving in Switzerland in the Alpine German Speaking mission as a missionary. I grew up in the church of Jesus Christ as both my parents are converts. I love my friends and family. They mean the world to me and I can`t imagine life without them, which is way I am so grateful for this gospel. I really enjoy learning. I took Biology Chemistry and Maths as A-levels as I really like to learn how things work. Although I love drawing and creating things as well, which is why I am planning on going into computer Games design. I enjoy playing sports with friends especially basketball. I love anything to do with technology.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church to be true. Although I was brought up in this Church there comes a point in everyone's` life where they have to ask is this all true? Are the things that i have been told true? Is there a God? These and many more were the questions that i had asked myself. So i thought i could either continue down the same path and just believe or i could find out. I was always told that Heavenly father would answer our prayers, so i thought i would test this. I decided to read in the scriptures every evening and do the things heavenly father wants me to do. At the same time i was asking him in prayer if he was there, if he heard my prayers and if the book of Mormon is true. This went on for a bit and some nights i thought i may have received an answer, but i still questioned the feelings I had. I did this over a period of a couple of months. When finally one evening i prayed again and asked is the book of Mormon true. In that moment i got such a strong feeling of love and peace that i knew it was true and that heavenly father really is there and answers prayers. It took me a while but it was definitely worth it. Because of that experience I came to know that there really is a plan for me. That we are all children of god and that there is a way back to him and a way to gain eternal happiness. That is why i am a Mormon :)

How I live my faith

I try and live my life as best as I can following in the saviours foot steps, which isn't always easy in today's society. I study his words and the words of his prophets to know who he is and how best to serve him. Of course that means a regular church attendance as well. Through this i can learn to become like him. To be able to think as he would in every situation in life. I am currently serving as a missionary for two years to help other people learn more about him and his teachings in order to gain a stronger relationship with him and heavenly father. I was also a leader in the young mens youth group. It was great to teach them and be involved in the different activities, to see each of them learn and grow to find out for themselves that the church is true.
