Hi I'm Spencer Archibald

I grew up in Alberta.. I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Throughout school, I would try my best to balance and prioritize the Gospel, Academics, and Athletics, as well as perform my best in each category. I grew up as a Latter Day Saint, and worked diligently to fulfil my callings and the responsibilities along with it. I was successful in school. My favorite classes were Math and Japanese. I played numerous sports which i enjoyed, namely basketball, cross country, and badminton. After graduation, I worked to save enough money to serve a mission. I've been called to serve a mission in Bulgaria and am preparing for that now!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel and I know it to be true. I've grown up in the faith and have always known of its surety. My testimony in the truths have developed as I have felt the love of God and have experienced his hand in my endeavours. As I have grown, I have shifted from going because my family goes, to going because I choose to. I am a mormon because I have a vision of the kind of person I want to become. This is my goal in life. Through it, I can bring joy to myself and others, pleasing God, and gaining Celestial Glory. Mormonism is the path I can take to reach my infinite potential. It is a unique thought: to strive for a goal that can never be attained. Never attained because there is always more that can be done. But the thing is, I will always be one step closer. What I see perfect now, can be achieved, but when it is achieved, is no longer seen as perfect because, as I said, there is always more that can be done. And infinite time there is to achieve, so long as I meet Gods conditions, which is why this life and my choice to be a mormon is so crucial and valuable to me!

How I live my faith

We are Gods children. We have great power and potential. I find fulfilment in my life as I love and serve others. I try not to let any opportunities pass me by. In my branch, I have accepted the calling to teach young adults that are my age about gospel doctrines. This calling has strengthened my faith as I prepared the lessons and hopefully has strengthened the members I taught. I am excited to be able to serve the people of Bulgaria. I hope that I will be able to bring them the joy that comes from this true church. As I serve among them, I hope to be able to help them find peace in this life and in the life to come.
