Hi I'm Sam King

I grew up in Utah, and am serving in the Bangkok Thailand Mission, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to spend my time outdoors hiking, camping, hunting, and especially fishing. I just graduated from Mountain Crest High School, and am going to be serving in the Bangkok, Thailand Mission starting August 3, 2016. I plan on going to Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah when I return from my mission. I am going to study pre-medicine with the dream of becoming a heart surgeon. I also want to get married in the temple and start a family sometime after I get home from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. However in my teen years I was taking my life down a road that wasn't right. I thought to myself was the Gospel of Jesus Christ really the truth. I decided to really study the scriptures and to ask God if what I had been taught all my life was really the truth. I didn't have any angles come to me and tell me that the Gospel was true as I was hoping would happen. However one day when I was very frustrated and close to giving up on the Gospel, the thought came to me that the Holy Ghost had already testified to me throughout all my life that all I had been taught was true, I just needed to recognize that. I didn't need any angles coming and telling me the Gospel was the truth because I already knew that it was truth and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I really don't do anything extraordinary. I just have daily scripture study and personal prayer morning and night. I attend my church meetings and events, and my family is good at having daily family prayer and scripture study, and family home evening every Monday. I also try to attend the temple once a week and have found that to be a great way to stay close to God. I also pray that Heavenly Father will help me to find someone to help each and every day, it is amazing to see what some might think is a small act of service have such a profound effect on some people. Plus it helps me to understand what Christ's love is more fully.
