Hi I'm Michael

I grew up in Clinton with a mom who is Ecuadorian. I've visited my family there and stood on the equator. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm an outdoors type of person. I like playing sports but not competitively. I've received my mission call and entered the MTC. I've been called to speak Mandarin Chinese in the Taiwan, Taichung mission. I like to listen to people's problems and helping in any way i can. I like seeing people smile and try to always make whoever I'm around smile at least once.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to the Mormon faith. I questioned whether it was true for most of my junior high and some of my high school years. I served people in my community with other youth of my faith and i felt the spirit but i still didn't know if the church was the correct one. I prayed and read the Book of Mormon and one day as i prayed i felt overwhelmed with the feeling that the LDS church is the correct church. I've felt that spirit testify again and again wherever there is good that it is of god and this is god's church. After visiting the temple i knew once again without a shadow of a doubt that this church is true. i taught a lesson in church one Sunday after going through the temple that finally sealed my faith in the church. I knew, and still know, that god loves us and wants us to serve him. After teaching the lesson i felt lifted up by his spirit and i knew that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or the Mormon church as it is also known, was, is, and will be the true church of god. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I've been called to serve an lds mission in Taiwan which i have accepted. I'm currently attending classes teaching me how to help those not of the lds faith come to know more about us in a way that's easy to understand... and learning the language I'll need to do so. I try to live my faith through everyday life. I'll help those who need it when i come across them and I always try to get a smile on everyone's face.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Michael
If you truly wish to know our heavenly father then you must follow his commandments, serve you're fellow man and pray and read scripture constantly having hope and faith that he will answer you. As you continue to show your faith in him you will notice that you begin to know and understand who our father is and what his wishes for you and all his children are. Show more Show less
