Hi I'm Cal Asay

I am serving a Humanitarian Mission in Madagascar. I am a retired Insurance agent. I have 20 grandchildren. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a PhD in Instructional Psychology. My first job out of college was in New York City as a training/ management development specialist where I was able to utilize that learning. Later, I started my own insurance agency in Texas and did that for 30 years. I retired about a year ago. The things I like to do are paint, read, dabble with investments, watch my sports teams and visit my grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon in part because of wonderful parents who taught me the principles of the gospel and were them selves wonderful examples of people trying to be like the Savior. Later, as a teenager, I had a crisis of faith in which I went directly to the Lord and asked for confirmation that everything I had been taught was true and correct. I received that witness while running one night in the dark by myself. Since then, I have had witnesses of the truthfulness and blessings of the gospel too numerous to relate. They include that the Book of Mormon is indeed the word of God, that my family can be together forever, that my association with the church drives to be the best me I can be and that Jesus Christ is our Savior.

How I live my faith

Over the course of my life I have been active in the Mormon church and served in all kinds of callings. I served as a young missionary for the church in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. I have taught young children, teenagers, college age youth and adults on sunday and on other occasions. I have been involved in organizing and directing activities for the youth, missionary efforts and young single adults and adults at both a local and wider level. I served as Bishop for seven years. My wife and I are currently serving as Humanitarian Missionaries.
