Hi I'm Michael

I sing at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at Long Beach State . I`m a missionary in the Perù Arequipa Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a studying a degree in Vocal Performance and Music Education at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music, but have put that on hold for while as I`m currently serving as a Missionary in the Perù-Arequipa mission. I love just about everything when it comes to music, but in particular to sing. And to sing LOUD! I also love to dance (mostly Salsa and West Coast Swing) but really anything that has good rhythm. I`m an Eagle Scout, and I love to be outside, to go backpacking, and to play tennis. And I love to laugh. (not a reference to Mary Poppins :P)

Why I am a Mormon

I was always told the, "The Church is true! The Church is true!" but I never really knew for myself whether or not. One night I felt helplessly alone, and I didn`t feel as if anyone knew how I felt. So I got down on my knees, and asked my Heavenly Father if he knew how I felt, and if really I could ever feel better. And I had such a felling of peace wash over me. From that day to this day, I continue to feel His love as I testify that God knows each and every one of us by name. That He knows our voices, and that if we are worthy, we can return to live with Him after this life.

How I live my faith

I`m serving as a missionary in the Perù Arequipa Mission, and am Currently in Tacna, Perù. Every day, we leave our apartment with the thought in mind, "How are we going to help these people today," or, "Heavenly Father, please guide me to someone that needs our help." Because that`s really all we`re here to do, is to help these people, whether it is helping construct a house, cook a meal, or help them improve their relationship with God. I`ve found that out on my mission, that our Father in Heaven really just want`s us to love one another, and if we love one another, we`ll do whatever we can to help each other.
