Hi I'm Mike Westgate

I am an Englishman who now lives in Northern IrelandI am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a fencing coach for Northern Ireland. I'm involved in the training of nation squads for world and european championships, and the Olympic Games. I have been fortunate to have been able to travel to many countries because of my sport. I'm very interested in all sports, started my career as a physical education teacher. I later became a Deputy Headteacher in a comprehensive school in England. I coach fencing as a hobby but now because I have retired from teaching I coach full time. I am a fully qualified Maitre d'Armes.

Why I am a Mormon

I met some missionaries on the street, and became baptized through their teaching, in Guildford, Surrey. There was a time in my life where I wasn't fully active in the church, in fact I used to avoid the missionaries on the streets. One day I just met them and I decided to come back to church. I know that this is the true Church and an active church

How I live my faith

I'm the Young Men's President for my ward. I supervise the youth age twelve to eighteen, and organize weekly activities to help them grow and mature both socially and spiritually.
