Hi I'm McKay Shamo

I'm a Delta Rabbit, I love sports, I love my family, I'm a missionary, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of four boys. My brothers and I are very competitive. In my house nothing says "I love you too" like a monstrous dunk in your face on the 8 foot hoop. I love to travel, I have been to France, Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, The Dominican Republic, and all over the United States. I love basically every sport there is but mostly football. In high school I played football, basketball, and threw the shot put. I plan on playing football at Dixie State University after my mission. I am a huge University of Utah fan so naturally everything I own is red. I enjoy a good movie even though about 90% of the time I fall asleep. I have read the Harry Potter series probably close to 10 times. I plan on pursuing a career in medicine.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life, my parents have always been the biggest influence of good throughout my life. Their example of devoted discipleship has been one of the greatest motivators for me to find out the truthfulness for myself. But I had to find out for myself that this church is Jesus Christ's church. I don't know exactly when I gained a testimony I think it came a little at a time through years of faithful service and activity in the church. I chose to serve a mission because I love Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for all the blessings that living this gospel have brought me and my family. And that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can be forgiven, strengthened, and uplifted. I hope that I can share this with others because it means everything to me!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission. Everyday I get to go out and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with my brothers and sisters here. I live my faith by trying everyday to be better than I was before. I try to always do what the Savior wants me to do.
