Hi I'm Connor McKay Dela-Cruz

I grew up in Utah. I love to play music. I'm going to serve as a missionary in the Paraguay Asuncion Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am going to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Paraguay Asuncion Mission. I taught myself to play the drums when I was 12, then the guitar, the piano and now I can play many other instruments. I am in a band called The Contras and we like to play Rock N' Roll. I have a very strong passion for music. I love to be outside. I love camping, backpacking, and kayaking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one true church on this earth. I was born into this church and grew up being a member, but I was only going through the motions and doing the things that my family did. I never had a true testimony and I started to lose interest in the church when I was around the age of 17. My band started getting popular and people had begun asking about my mission. For my whole life I had never really had the desire to serve a mission. There was a show that we were supposed to play Las Vegas that had should've been our big break, but it fell through. I was struggling with that for a while and I was starting to wonder what I should really do with my life. After fasting and prayer, I was given revelation and was told to serve a mission. I decided to read The Book of Mormon and after that I would start the paperwork for my mission. As I read The Book of Mormon, I noticed things. I started saying morning and evening prayers. I started going to church because I loved to gospel. I started reading

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily, not just on Sundays. I don't go a day without reading my scriptures. I attend church every Sunday that I can. I pray every morning and every night and multiple times in between. I strive in all ways possible to be Christ like. Just as we center our religion around our Savior, I center my life around him. I study his example. I always do what I can to love and serve others. I am preparing to serve a mission to serve others as well as The Lord.
