Hi I'm Elder Schenk

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving in Calgary Alberta, Canada.

About Me

I am really into music. I did marching band for two years as a drummer. In the summer I love spending time with family and going boating. I really love being outdoors. I graduated high school in 2015. I'm serving a mission in Calgary Alberta, Canada, Mandarin Chinese speaking. I love speaking Chinese!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon mainly because my family is, however i would not change for any reason. I know this church is the true church. I've read all of the scriptures from the bible to the Book of Mormon. I know that the prophets that we have and had and going to have are called of God by revelation. I love my family and I know that I will be able to be with them forever because of this church. I am so excited to be serving a mission for the LDS church. It is going to be an amazing chance for me to invite others to come unto Christ and be perfected by him. I make mistakes in my life just like everybody else but through Christ and his Atonement i can be clean and perfect. This is my testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I have been a member my whole life. I've had many opportunities to serve in Branches, Wards, and Stakes. I've had many leadership opportunities working with my friends in the young men quorums. I am faithfully serving a mission at the moment and inviting people to learn of Christ and find out how to have more happiness in this life. I love the read the scriptures, from the Bible to the Pearl of Great Price. They have the potential to answer questions of the soul, comfort broken hearts, and give power to overcome temptation. Prayer is one of the most important things that we need to do in life. It is so powerful. It is the way that I live my life. It has changed my life. Church is where we partake of the Sacrament and I know that this is a very special experience for me every week. It gives me a cleansed feeling that I can not describe. This is how I live my faith, through going to church, prayer, and reading the scriptures. #CPR
