Hi I'm McKell

I'm from South Jordan, Utah. I'm currently serving a mission for the Church in San Diego California, and I love speaking Spanish!

About Me

I am a missionary and I love to laugh! I like to play ultimate frisbee, and learning about other people is one of my favorite things to do. I am the oldest of 5 kids, and my family means the world to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I used to always think because I was raised in the Church and born in Utah, that being a Mormon was just who I was supposed to be. But I have realized recently that being a Mormon is being converted to Christ. And by converted, I don't mean I have a perfect knowledge of Christ or anything else. Far from it actually. But I do know that I'm here with a purpose, and the gospel of Jesus Christ has helped me realize that purpose. I am so grateful for the chance I get every day to help others find that purpose as well. Being a Mormon has helped me become the person who God wants me to be.

How I live my faith

Right now I have the awesome opportunity to help other people all day, every day. As a missionary I have dedicated a year and a half of my life to help others come unto Christ. This can take a variety of forms, anywhere from teaching people more about the gospel of Jesus Christ to helping them carry in their groceries. I also am learning Spanish while I'm here to be able to communicate better with people. I love what I do, and I love the people I am serving with.
