Hi I'm Macinzey Duncan

New Mexico houses my hometown and I am currently serving in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh mission! And I'm a Mormon :)

About Me

I grew up in a little town in New Mexico and couldn't wait to go to college. I attended one year at Dixie State University in Utah where I was studying to be a nurse. Before I came out, I spent the majority of my time with my family - chasing around my niece and nephews. I feel incredibly blessed that I get to spend forever with my favorite people! I believe in chocolate, 30-second dance parties, and summer rain. Since July of 2014 I have been serving a mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I am so grateful to have this gospel in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because God answers prayers. I grew up in the church so I have been learning about it all my life. It's pretty easy to ride off your parent's testimony but there comes a point in everyone's life- member or not- that you have to figure out if what you've heard is true. When it was my time to do that, I never felt abandoned or left alone. I only felt the hand of the Savior helping me find the truth. After feeling that kind of love from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, I wanted to share that with others so they could feel the same thing. That is what I hope to do every day, show the people around me the love that our Father has for all of us individually! True and eternal happiness, love, and joy come from living the teachings of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not only striving to live, but sharing what I know to be true. The more you feel the Atonement of Christ working in your life, the bigger your desire is to share it. I try as hard as I can to help others come unto Christ. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to wear this little black name-tag every day and to help people learn of our Savior, and learn of the teachings that will guide them back home. Being a part of this work is the best decision I could have made. The Living Lord leads His Living Church, and I could not feel more blessed to be part of it!
