Hi I'm Mika Avanesjan

I was born in Armenia but grew up in Germany. I started playing soccer at age of 4 years. I`m a Mormon.

About Me

My Name is Mika Avanesjan I am 18 years old, I am a passionate soccer player. I am the youngest of three. My parents met the Missionaries when they immigrated to Germany. We were raised in the Mormon Church and i learned to understand how to become a good member of this church. My two sisters has served Missions in Utah-Saint George and Arizona-Mesa,they were great examples for me of diligent and dedicated servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is hard for me to give up my soccer in order to serve as a missionary but i trust heavenly father that he will bless me for my service,because he is my first priority.

Why I am a Mormon

I am not only a Mormon but i am in particular a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of the latter-day saints. That is the real meaning of my religion,to follow Jesus Christ as his disciple and to emulate his example as good as possible. It is not always an easy task to live the gospel of Jesus Christ but as i read the scriptures and pray to God i can feel his real identity and know the person i want to become. I am a Mormon because i love God and i know that this is the Church of his son.

How I live my faith

In order to live my faith i had to learn to understand my purpose here on earth. I learn this through sincere prayer and diligent scripture study.I try to share the gospel and that is why i decided to serve as a missionary in the England London-South Mission. I want to share my testimony of the restored gospel and the blessings of the plan of salvation,with the people I will meet.
