Hi I'm Travis Finch

I love my family, sports, the outdoors and I am currently enjoying the privilege of serving God as a missionary in Alberta Canada.

About Me

I am 20 years old, I love my family, sports, and the outdoors. I love the gospel, it plays a huge part in my life. I enjoy learning, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I plan to go to college when I return home from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

More recently in my life I have come to truly know that I have a Savior and a Heavenly Father who loves me. This knowledge has come from hours of study, multiple experiences in which I have had to exercise my faith and an ever increasing desire to develop a stronger relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. I was lucky to have parents that raised me in this Church and helped me come to know for myself that God has restored His church to the earth. I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon, prayed about its truthfulness and then sought after my own answers to my questions. As I have done this and as I do this every day God is helping me to understand more fully the plan that He has set in place for the happiness of His children. I am a Mormon because I have planted my seed of faith, as talked about in the 32 chapter of Alma in the Book of Mormon, this has helped me learn to trust God. As I trust him more each day I am beginning to see the ways in which he is guiding me and helping me grow closer to him. I know that I have a Savior, he lives, he loves me, he performed the atonement so that I could be saved from my sins. He has paved a path for me that leads back to my Father in Heaven. I know that God loves me, I know that He cares about me and is very aware of the things that I am doing. I know that God wants me to one day return to live with Him again, and most of all I know that He wants me to be happy. I know that the Book of Mormon truly is the word of God, Joseph Smith was a Prophet called by God. I have a testimony that miracles have not ceased, in fact, miracles happen every day. This gospel brings me true peace and happiness in my life.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving as a missionary in the Canada Edmonton Mission. As a missionary I am volunteering two years of my life to the service of my Father in Heaven. I love studying the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon. I pray every day and am always striving to become more like my Savior Jesus Christ.
