Hi I'm Ken Francis

I'm one of 8 kids. I love hiking and the outdoors. Ball is life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ken. I'm the 5th born child of 8 from my parents. Because of this I'm super competitive and I love all sports! I played Basketball and Volleyball all through high school. I've grown to love hiking, exploring and going on sweet waterfall adventures! A couple of my favorite things about my family are the intense games of basketball we play together and all of the dumb movies that we watch together. My favorite movie is definitely Heavy Weights! It's a Disney movie and it's a classic! I grew up in Southern California but just before my Junior Year in high school, I moved to Upstate New York with my family. It was an adventure and a blessing. Currently I am serving a 2 year mission in the Canada Winnipeg Mission and I'm loving every second of it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel has blessed my family. If we are God's children on this earth then we are part of his family. God loves his children! I have come to learn this for myself. He wants us to succeed and he wants us to come back to live with him again. That is his work and that is what he glories in; our progression. I have learned that God loves me and has a plan for me. This empowers me to live a little better and to live a little happier. God's plan for us is to receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His plan is for us to have faith on his son, repent, be baptized, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and endure to the end. Through our faith and our actions we show God our love for him. I want everything that I do to praise my God . He has given me everything so I want to give him the little that I can. God is good. He loves us. I am a Mormon because I feel Gods love more perfectly as I practice my faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Christs 2 great commandments; Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. Because I love God with all of my heart and want to please him, I am trying to keep all of his commandments. I take very literally Christs charge to his followers found in Mathew 19 which states: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. My desire is to show my love to my brothers and sisters by bringing them the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I am dedicating the next 2 years of my life to be a missionary and fulfill this purpose. My discipleship does not end at the conclusion of my missionary service. My desire is to live the gospel of Jesus Christ always. I will praise God in all that I do by serving his children. I praise him by opening my mouth and sharing the love which I have found with all of his children. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings happiness.
