Hi I'm Travis

I grew up in a small town. I like basketball and doing things outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be headed to Australia shortly and am learning to speak the Vietnamese language. I worked as a projectionist at a movie theater in my hometown during high school. I also played basketball, soccer, and ran cross country and track. My family is very important me. My dad is a convert to the LDS church and my mom was raised in the church. I have a younger brother who enjoys reading and video games. My family and I have often gone on vacations to various parts of the western United States.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always gone to church with my family, and my faith has grown through my experiences. I've seen the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ as I have applied the principles in my own life. The best experience I've had happened during High School. Two of my friends began attending church and learning about the church. They both came from difficult family circumstances, but were able to become my brothers because of our connection and experiences together. They both joined the church and we then were united under Christ. The times we shared were some of the happiest of my life because I was able to see the blessings of the church help them be happier. Christ's gospel makes me happy too and provides me with peace at all times. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is Christ's church on the earth today and the blessings it provides will help bring peace to anyone. I have learned important values and standards that have guided my decisions and helped me be a better, happier person.

How I live my faith

I love helping others in anyway I can. I was a member of the National Honor Society in High School and participated in various activities such as volunteering at the Senior citizen's center, community youth programs, food drives, pulling weeds and organizing community events. I try my best to get along with everyone I meet. I have been in lots of youth leadership positions in the church and currently participate in organizing Sunday school classes. I have also had many opportunities to speak in church and teach classes too. I participated in the Boy Scouts of America and lots of church sponsored youth activities growing up.
