Hi I'm Elder Luke Bare

I love to laugh! I love God! I am on a mission for the LDS Church in the Arkansas Little Rock Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the proud youngest of my family of 10 kids, and an uncle of many more! I grew up in a home where God and family are the most important parts of having a happy home. I love to laugh and make people's days better in any possible way that I can. I'm a goof, a wannabe mountain man, music junkie and an avid movie watcher. I am a college student at Brigham Young University - Idaho, but I am currently serving a mission for the LDS Church in the Arkansas Little Rock Mission. I love being a missionary and helping others to learn of their eternal potential, and helping them to make promises with God. I like playing just about any kind of sport that there is, especially football and basketball, even though I may not be the best at it. My family is the center of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I feel like I am one of the luckiest people because when my brothers and sisters and I were all growing up, my parents taught us from the very beginning that God is our loving Heavenly Father the father of our spirits. They taught us that he hears us when we pray, and that he sent his son Jesus Christ to suffer and die for all of us, so that one day if we do what is right and choose to follow his perfect example, then we will be able to live with God again. Also I am a member of the LDS Church because it makes me happier than I could ever be than if I was not a member. Living the principles of the Gospel, and keeping the commandments of our Heavenly Father, shows us that through obedience and hard work, we can all return to live with our Heavenly Father. I have a strong testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church upon the Earth.

How I live my faith

It says in the scriptures that when you are In the service of your fellow man, you are only in the service of your God. I love helping people. I try to make each day better for someone that I may come in contact with each day. I have been a home teacher, a family home evening activity coordinator, and an elders quorum teacher up at BYU-Idaho. I love the feeling that I get when I help people in anyway that I can. I feel like the best way to show someone what you believe is to either tell them or show them.
