Hi I'm Kyler Gates

I'm a cross country and track runner. I'm a Missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

During High School I basically did two things, run and homework. I was on both the Cross Country team and the Track and Field teams. I took as many Advanced Placement classes as I could. Now I am going to Brazil to serve a mission and then will come home to go to College. I love to read and have read quite a few books in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I grew up in the Church. But as I have grown I have found for myself reasons to stay a Mormon. I learned through study of the scriptures about the life of Christ and His teachings, and have come to an understanding that I want to follow Him. I know that the temples are houses of God and that we can feel His presence there. I know that through temples families can be sealed together for eternity. I know that through the Atonement all mankind may be saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending my church meetings. I have held callings in many presidencies while in the Young Men's program. I have been called as a missionary to serve in the Brazil Santa Maria Mission where I will have the privilege of teaching the people of Brazil more about my faith and inviting them to come unto Christ.
