Hi I'm Raechyl

I've lived in Oregon my whole life, but I'll soon be leaving to serve a mission in Germany! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was involved in various leadership classes and programs throughout high school. I played volleyball, basketball, and participated in track and field. I absolutely love being an aunt. I am currently attending BYU-Idaho and majoring in Elementary Education. I just got my mission call and I will soon be serving in the Frankfurt, Germany mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because nothing brings more peace, happiness, love, and purpose to my life than being a member of this church does. I was blessed with being born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I know that I would be lost without it. I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that the fulness of the gospel has been restored on this earth. I know that we have modern day prophets who have the ability to give us direction and counsel from God today. I know that the power of the priesthood has been restored, and that we can all receive the blessings that come from it. I am a Mormon because I have seen the joy and the light that comes from being a part of this church, and I have felt it for myself. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints is the only true church that contains the fulness of the gospel on this earth today, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

While I am at home for the summer, I help out in my ward's primary and nursery. I love volunteering to be a substitute teacher for any age group of primary children. I also try to find ways to share my testimony on social media, so that my friends and followers can become more familiar with what I believe in.
