Hi I'm Mihail Paukovic

I was born in Belgrade, Serbia. I moved to Vegas when I was 16 and converted to church when I was 17. I'm an athlete and musician

About Me

I was born in Serbia and I moved to US when I was 16. It was very adventurous because I didn't speak any English or knew anyone here. I am the oldest of 4 and I have a very good relationship with my family. My brother and I play a lot of sports. I played basketball, swimming and football for my high school. I played basketball for a club for almost a year. I'm 6'9 so I'm planning on trying out for college basketball. Other than playing sports I make music and play a guitar. I've been doing that since I was 12. I love working out and fighting (I used to fight back in Serbia). I am planning to study International Business and getting my MBA in it. I also love hiking and everything that is outdoors. I love worm weather and I hate the cold. I am a very friendly person and I love meeting new people and learning about them. I also love traveling and learning new things about different countries, their cultures and of course, food. I joined church when I got to US. I was 17 and my whole family joined it. It was awesome. The best decision I have ever made, and my mission of course.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church when I was 17. I was never religious before and I've never liked to go to church. My parents saw the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and he wanted to go and check it out. My brother and I were not interested at all so they went alone. They came back home super happy and started talking how great it was. They talked about it the whole week. They begged us to go and see it ourselves so we went. It was amazing. People welcomed us very worm and it felt great. We accepted the missionaries to come over and teach us more about the gospel and the church. More I learned and more I knew about the church I understood my purpose in this life. I had addictions before and I overcame them with the help of the members and the go

How I live my faith

I love going to church. I was teaching a Gospel Principles class for 6 months before I came out on my mission. I did a lot of service projects with my home ward, helped many people to move in and out their homes. I visited my home teaching families every month and made sure that they are ok and that they are coming to church every week. I participated in Young mans program after I became an Elder and did a lot of fun stuff with them. I gave blessings to family members and brought sacrament to many people who are unable to come to the church. I just love serving others, its a great feeling.
