Hi I'm Kelek Barrett

I'm a missionary. I am an avid player of Super Smash Bros. The Book of Mormon is my best friend. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've just graduated high school where I was pretty prolific in choir and theater. To top off my nerdiness I have a deep rooted passion for Smash Bros. It has been a game that my brother and I have been playing since we were toddlers. Although this may not seem like an ideal hobby, it has been a wonderful reason for my friends and I to hang out often and quickly have become close because of it. It has also given us opportunities to share the gospel. Food is an important aspect in my family dynamic and we have our burrito place, thai place, burger place, etc. My mom comes from a full-blooded Italian family so pasta of all kinds are Sunday dinner staples. When I'm not playing smash or eating with my family, I skateboard casually all over Redlands. I think the type of board I have is called a cruiser but, I'm sure I'm wrong.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because everything good and wonderful in my life is from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My wonderful loving family is one the greatest blessings God has given me. As I am on my mission, I am discovering how much the Book of Mormon is the word of God and the examples and stories that are in it give me strength every day, especially when times are hard. I have seen the Church work in my community and it is always what makes it beautiful. People aren't perfect; but through this Gospel and this Church I have seen all kinds of lives change and grow and families that have been made strong. While I am on my mission I have never felt the love of God with so much reality and strength. I LOVE MY GOD! And God has sent the love of my family through their prayers and my family's love gives me such strength.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission full time for two years preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am serving in the Cuernavaca, Mexico Mission.
