Hi I'm Michael

I grew up moving countries every 1-3 years. I'm going on a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving a mission in New Zealand Speaking Tongan, after my mission I hope to go to BYU, study broadcast journalism and writing, and eventually work for NFL Media.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a strong testimony of this church, and I can say that I know that it is the only true church on the face of the earth. I think that my testimony has grown a lot over the past three years, it's grown as I've put into practice the doctrine I've learned, as I attended seminary and felt the spirit during lessons, but I think it has grown the most because of prayer. One experience that has solidified my testimony of prayer was when my family and I were flying from Frankfurt, Germany to visit my Grandmother in Illinois. Our flight leaving Germany had been delayed. This meant that when we landed in Chicago we would miss our flight to Jacksonville where my Grandmother lived. I said a prayer on the flight to Chicago, that the plane would somehow be delayed. When we got there we found out that the flight had in fact been delayed and we made our connecting flight just tin time. However because it was a late night flight, the car rental in the Jacksonville airport would be closed when we got there. So we would have no way to get to our hotel where we'd be staying. I said another prayer asking our Heavenly Father to somehow make it possible for us to rent a car upon arrival. When we landed we found out that the woman who was working at the car rental station in the airport, was working late that night, because her parents were on the same flight my family and I were on. I'm certain that Heavenly Father made everything line up so that we'd be able to get to Jacksonville without really any problems at all. This also reminds me that our Father in Heaven loves each and every one of us immensely. Through experiences like this I've had my testimony grow, from a small seed that was planted in me as a young child, into a tree that bears good fruit.

How I live my faith

I just try and be kind. I think that if we are kind to everyone we meet, and treat people the way our Savior would want us to treat them; the way He treated people; then we truly live our faith.
