Hi I'm Michael Young

I'm a Missionary in the Florida Jacksonville Mission. I love marching band, biking, and serving others. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a Missionary in the Florida Jacksonville Mission, and I am assigned to the Gainesville, Florida area. I am working on the west side of Gainesville, in the Gainesville 2nd Ward. I am also a Facebook missionary, which means that I go on Facebook and post church related videos, pictures, talks, and I also answer peoples questions online. This is the best thing that I have ever done, and I know that the Lord blesses all of His children when they go out and share the gospel, whether by example, by word, or online. I am from Cache Valley, Utah. I enjoy biking around town and also going up Green Canyon with our dog, Duce. I like to play with Lego's, particularly Star Wars, and I like to build, and then rebuild my sets. I love to read books. The genre that I read is fantasy and fiction. Some of my favorite books have been The Rangers Apprentice series and the Septimus Heaps series. I also read the Book of Mormon daily, and I love getting AHA moments. I also played in the band. I play French Horn, Mellophone, and piano. I find that music is a great way to share my talents with others, and helps me to feel the Spirit as I play the Hymns of the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have followed my parents example. I have my own testimony of Joseph Smith, that he is a prophet of God, and that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet in these days. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and is the word of God. I believe that Christ loves each of us to perform the atonement so that through Him, we can all live again.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and do service for my ward. I am a missionary for the Lord in the Florida Jacksonville Mission. I am in the Gainesville Area. As a missionary I study the scriptures daily, pray often, and work as hard as I can for the Lord. My companion and I teach and testify, bike, do service, knock on doors, and help the ward and community however we can. As we continue to improve we become more Christ-like so that we are able to be a better tool in the Masters hands. I love to be able to testify of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
