Hi I'm Birk Matthew Gundersen

I am a Latter Day Saint born and raised in American Fork, Utah. I am preparing to go on a mission to Oklahoma City.

About Me

I am a Latter Day Saint born and raised in American Fork, Utah. I have lived in the same house since I was two years old. I belong to a wonderful family of six members. There is Tara (9) Zane (15) Me (19) Mccall (20) Suzanne (50) and Matthew (47). I have just recently graduated from American Fork High School and I have been attending Utah Valley University since then. I have been very blessed to be born and raised in the Church. I have been blessed to be called to serve a mission in Oklahoma City, OK. I am excited to go and serve the lord with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this gospel is true. I know that our Savior Jesus Christ lives and that he loves us very much! I have tasted the power of the Atonement and I KNOW that through Jesus Christ our natures can be changed and we can become something so much more than we are. I am very grateful for this church. I have been blessed to have a wonderful ward family and they take care of me and help me through my challenges.

How I live my faith

I am a faithful member of my church. I attend sacrament meeting every week. I also teach the 7-8 year olds in the primary. I have always tried my best to be a true member of the LDS religion. As a youth I made sure that I attended mutual as often as I could and I made it most weeks. I have also had callings in the past that have involved being in quorum presidencies and have always tried my best to exhort my callings. I believe that my greatest service to the church is only about to begin. I have decided to dedicate two years of my life to the lord and helping other people find the truth of the gospel. I gained a testimony of the gospel when I was very young. I have since tried my best to build upon the firm foundation of the gospel. I have been very blessed with great friends and family that live the gospel.
