Hi I'm Malachi

I am a Missionary serving in the Idaho, Idaho Falls Mission.

About Me

I'm not really one to talk about my self, but I hear from my friends that I'm Funny, easy to get along with and make great food! I was born in a small town in the south western corner of the show me state. (Missouri) I am the youngest of 7 kids, I'm an uncle to 25 little ones and I love my family! I'm also serving a mission in the Idaho, Idaho Falls mission! Some of the hobbies I have include watching movies, online gaming with friends and family, working on and building computers, working with my dad, pokemon and Dungeons and Dragons! (yeah I'm a nerd...)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt my Saviors love for me. I can remember back when I was baptized, I was just 8 years old. I remember feeling that love of my Savior so strong that day. I felt that same love at the age of 10 wile visiting the Carthage jail, they showed a video of the Prophet Joseph Smith and the restoration. I knew then that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore his Sons Church and the power of the Priesthood back to the earth today. I found that the Book of Mormon another testament of Jesus Christ, a record written by the inhabitants of the ancient American people, translated and brought forth by the power of God. Is and will forever be the word of God. How can I say I know this? I have come to know this by the holy Spirit. I followed the Challenge given by Moroni In the book its self, found in Moroni chapter 10 verses 3-5. I read and prayed, asking Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ if the Book of Mormon was true.... I received a Spiritual calm, warmth and peace. Feeling the love that only the Savior can have for all of us and hearing the words "You know its true." My hope and testimony is that all of us will come to know of the Saviors love for all of us. In the sacred name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints has been a huge blessing for both me and my family! I have seen a great deal of those blessing wile serving here in the mission field. Ever since I was just a little boy I knew I wanted to serve a mission for my Savoir, but wasn't sure what missionaries did. When I turned 18 (the age young men can serve) I thought that I was going to be asked if I wanted to serve a mission, but that didn't happen! I waited a bit and was told that I needed to go to the Young single adults branch. I really didn't want to go, but the branch president called me and asked if I would come at least 1 time, so I did! And it was great! After a few years my branch president asked if I wanted to serve a mission, with excitement I replied YES! In just a few short months I got my call to serve in the Idaho, Idaho falls mission and here I am today!

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Talk with your friends, maybe one is a member of the LDS Church. Its better to talk to someone who lives what you want to learn more about, rather then asking someone who doesn't know. Show more Show less
