Hi I'm McKay

Greetings! I am a sports enthusiast, a student, a missionary, and a Son of God.

About Me

As the oldest of six, I'm trying to set an example for my younger siblings. I have played sports all through high school, and I have also been a part of scholastic groups like National Honors Society. Some folks may say I'm pretty smart, but that is the result of hard work. I'm a self taught guitarist, I love baseball, watching football, and just about any sport. I have big plans to serve a mission and attend Brigham Young University when I return. I am fascinated with math and physics, small engines, nature, the human mind, and food. Having been commissioned of Jesues Christ, and by a Prophet in these latter days, I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints in the Philippines Bacolod Mission. I will return in September of 2016. I live my faith by example, and by bringing others unto Christ, in the Philippines, and wherever I go.

Why I am a Mormon

Even those who were born into the Church have a chance to find their own testimonies of its truthfulness, to find themselves, and to find Christ. I have come to know these things for myself. I read the scriptures, and I know, not just believe that they are true. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is like a big family. Come and join us!

How I live my faith

Being one of three Latter Day Saint young men at my school, I tend to stand out more than most. My example is a testament of my faith, and while it separates me from the rest of the world, I encourage all my peers to be happy and help others. I have had the opportunity to serve in various leadership positions with the youth in the Church, for example, I greet my peers at Seminary (Bible/Book of Mormon study class) every morning and help plan activities. I am a leader with the young men.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

We are crated in His likeness, and we have the potential to become like him. What greater, more nobler destiny have we than this? The ability of God to know us each personally is beyond wonderful. Show more Show less
