Hi I'm Mike Calachan

I grew up in the Philippines(Manaoag Pangasinan, to be specific) Gospel lovin' a music lover ( filipino at heart) I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love anything that has to do with missionary work. I teach people, especially my friends about the gospel, I love to make OYM's when working with the missionaries, I Iove to prepare lesson from Preach My Gospel Manual, and I love the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am from the Philippines Urdaneta Mission.I have the most amazing friends and families in the world whom I love and cherished most. I attended Saint Camillus College before my mission and I am planning to return and study to become an excellent English Teacher. Why? it is because I want to share my knowledge and skills in the english field.Also, I want to help myself to become fluent in English language. I became a member of the LDS faith when I was 13 years old. Through sincere prayer, scripture study and the example of my churchmates, I have a strong testimony that Jesus Christ lives and that Heavenly Father has a wonderful plan for us. I know that Heavenly Father loves us so much and He always wants us to be happy by keeping his commandments.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to be a member of true Christ's Church because I want to know more about my Saviour. Through the scriptures specially the Book of Mormon, I was able to realized that we have our saviour who gave His life to free us from sin, discouragement and from our infirmities. I am extremely thankful for the role that the atonement of Jesus Christ has in my life. I know that through the atonement we can be forgiven for all our sins. I know with all my heart that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and it is true. I am now 20 years old and will be serving in Australia Melbourne Mission. For me, serving as a full-time missionary is the best opportunity to invite and encourage every soul to repent and be baptized in the Lord's true Church. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and the son that spring morning in 1820. I know He was a Prophet of God. I have a firm understanding about the restored gospel. Because of the gospel/plan of our loving Heavenly Father, it is made possible for me and for you to return to live with Heavenly Father and with our love ones for all eternity.

How I live my faith

I love to serve people whatever help they need.With that, I can say that faith and service are about my actions and not my words.I am strong believer in the fact that there's always someone watching me and if they were to see me doing what is right, I would be save and be counted in the kingdom prepared for those who did their best to follow the right choices. I will be serving as a full-time missionary soon, and I am so excited to wear a name tag and teach the people about the good news that they need to know about our saviour Jesus Christ. I love to sing Church Hymns and other church songs, uplifting music like church song, helps me to always follow the example of my Saviour. I believe that uplifting music is a very powerful tool and it is used to invite the spirit of God, while some of the worldly music is used to invite the Devil. Overall, I have always strived to comfort and build up others, become friends with anyone I meet, and be light to those who are in the dark.
