Hi I'm Enoch Councill

I grew up in a small town in Virginia and am currently serving a mission in Taiwan. I'm a hammocker, hiker, and a heel-clicker.

About Me

I'm a Neuroscience student with the hopes of becoming a biomedical engineer after grad school. I've completed two years of college and will finish my undergraduate degree after I return from my mission in Taiwan. I'm an avid reader, a lover of the outdoors, a nerd (and proud of it), a brother to 5, and an expert heel-clicker. I love traveling, visiting family, long hikes, solving puzzles, and meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of the Church. I have attended church meetings every Sunday for as long as I can remember. There has never been a time where I haven't had the influence of the LDS church in my life. I have always known that this church is true, that its teachings are of God. Through Sunday school, seminary, reading the scriptures, and praying to my Heavenly Father I have learned so much about the power of Christ's atonement, the power of prayer, and the love that Jesus Christ has for me. I've read the Book of Mormon many times. Each time I read it I learn so many new things and my faith in it grows even stronger. I know without a doubt that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the Earth and that he was a prophet called of God. I guess I could say that I'm a Mormon because this church brings me happiness. I'm a Mormon because my knowledge and testimony of the gospel brings me peace. I'm a Mormon because following the teaching of Jesus Christ makes me a better person, and brings me closer to the person I want to be.

How I live my faith

I currently am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Taichung, Taiwan. I live my faith by serving and loving the Taiwanese people. I chose to serve a mission because I have a strong desire to help others and do my best to make their lives happier. I know that the best way to bring joy into anyone's life is to introduce them to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Simply knowing that we are all children of our Heavenly Father and that He loves us all more than we can comprehend brings me so much peace. I want to share that peace with others.
