Hi I'm Elder McLaughlin

I am a missionary in the Brazil Curitiba South Mission. I'll attend BYU and Play soccer there when I return and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have played soccer my entire life. It's what I love most (Besides my family, and the Church). I'm an avid fan of Real Salt Lake and Manchester City. I also love to travel. I have traveled to much of the Western United States as well as Italy, Spain, Croatia, France, England and Brazil. The place I love most is Brazil. Years ago I spent 3 months there with my family and friends playing soccer. Now I am having the privilege to serve the Brazilian people on my Mission. I also love food and really enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Before I began my mission I was studying at Byu and playing soccer there too! I am currently serving in the Brazil Curitiba South Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I have seen the difference the Gospel makes in my life and in the life of others. It brings Peace, Love, and Happiness. I have seen in the lives of others the blessings of God being manifested. As I strive to live the commandments, fulfill my callings, through much prayer and scripture study I have been able to develop a testimony and today I know that Christ is our Savior and his Church is on the earth today!

How I live my faith

Serving a Mission! I love to serve others and bring them closer to Christ. I love learning about Christ teachings through the scriptures and living prophets!
