Hi I'm Kyler Kelsch

I graduated from Dixie High School in St. George Utah. I will be serving a mission in Antananarivo Madagascar on August 20th.

About Me

I am 18 years old, I grew up all over Utah, but mostly in St. George. I live with my family mom, dad, brother, and sister. I graduated from Dixie High School along with an Associates of Science Degree from Dixie State University. My hobbies include wrestling, screen printing, skim boarding, Skills USA, and traveling. I placed fourth in the nation competing in screen printing, I was also a state officer for Utah in Skills USA. I love to wrestle, I placed fourth at State and third at Super State. I am going on a mission to Antananarivo Madagascar and leaving August 20th, I will be speaking Malagasy, or at least attempt to speak it. Afterwards I will be attending Utah Valley University to compete in Skills USA and to walk-on the wrestling team. I have been to Japan as an exchange student, I have been to Minnesota for a 28 day wrestling camp, I also have been to D.C. for a leadership training for Skills USA. I love to be a leader, I am very motivated, encouraging, responsible, and hard working.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, both of my parents and their parents were Mormons. It only seemed fitting to follow them. My uncles are very great examples to me, and they also went on missions. They encouraged me to want to go on a mission. My mothers testimony is very strong and loving, and my dad always tests me on what is good and what is the right thing to do. I love my family, and they have been a great example to me and what being a Mormon is really about.

How I live my faith

I have recently just become an Elder in my ward, and I will be leaving in less than 30 days on a mission. I home teach 4 families until I leave they are amazing. It is very great practice before I leave. I love hanging out with the young men in the ward, and I love to encourage others and to be an example. The best way to be a leader is to be an example. That is what brings people to the church the best, just by being an example. Jesus Christ is and will always be the best example. I strive to be like him every day.
