Hi I'm Michael

I'm was born and raised in Idaho. I'm currently serving a Mission for the LDS Church in New York City.

About Me

I'm of Hispanic heritage and was born and raised in Pocatello, ID. I love to be outdoors (hiking, camping, hunting) and I've always been involved in sports as well! I enjoy playing Football, Baseball, and basketball and played all of them throughout High School. I also really enjoy Soccer and Handball, but I've never been on a team for either. I've got a pretty large family! I'm the 4th out of six kids, three older sisters and two younger brothers. I'm currently serving a mission in New York State and will return in October 2015.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of the Church, but everybody has to make the decision to remain a member or not, and that between them and their Father in Heaven. I choose to remain a member because I know that it is the true Church! With Christ leading it! I've seen how this church has helped people change their lives and make them happier. I love the friendships I've made around the world through this Church, because no matter where we are from or what type of background we have, we are all sons and daughters of God, and therefore a brother/sister to me.

How I live my faith

I try to attend Church every week but I've of course fallen short. I love to serve people and help make other peoples days better. Throughout the Bible Christ is shown helping others out and making their lives better, so I try to do the same! I am serving a mission for the same reason!
