Hi I'm Spencer

I grew up in Gilbert Arizona. I have been called to serve a mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I love Sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am about to leave on my mission. I received my call to the Argentina Buenos Aires West Mission. I have had my mission call since early November and am very excited to finally be going. In High School I was able to take photography and it is a great skill I am glad I have. I also was able to learn how to cook from the culinary arts class and this has been an awesome ability to obtain. Throughout my life i have loved playing sports. I enjoy playing games with my friends and watching sporting events with friends or family. My mother started teaching me piano lessons when i was five years old and have been playing ever since. When I started High School I began teaching piano lessons and had up to 15 students at one point. As a sophomore in High School i received my Eagle Scout award.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I was young my family has always gone to church. My parents both grew up as members of the church and have continued this tradition now with my family. I continue to follow the gospel because of the peace and happiness it brings into peoples lives. It provides comfort to questions many people have but do not know the answers too. The gospel enables us to come back from mistakes and feel forgiven of any sins. I have found that some of my best friends have been from my ward and that I am a happier person when i live my life according to this gospel.

How I live my faith

As a member of my ward, i have had a few different callings. One of them was as a ward piano player. I would play the piano at church activities, baptisms and firesides. Throughout my youth i have been in the presidencies for different young men's groups and have served to my best ability. Another way i participated was as a youth family history consultant. My ward had a family history contest between the young men and young women in my ward. It included finding names of past ancestors and entering them into the computer. While i have not had an official ward calling for some time, my bishop offered me a challenge as I was preparing for a mission. He wanted me to go on visits with the missionaries as they taught lessons to people. At first i wasn't sure why he wanted me to do this, but as i went on visits with them weekly i realized it was great preparation for my mission.
