Hi I'm David Archibald

I'm from Alberta, the youngest of 7 kids, a future missionary, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Canada as part of a wonderful family! I am a son to my Mom and my Dad, and a sibling to my 5 older brothers and my older sister, with a growing extended family! In school I used to enjoy playing different sports and being involved in extra-curricular activities, but now I am graduated. I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan, I like to juggle, and I have learned a little bit of Spanish. During my summers as a youth, I have been a part of church youth events such as Moroni's Quest, Especially For Youth, and the Hill Cumorah Pageant Work Crew. Recently, I have been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I will be labouring in the Taiwan Taichung Mission! I am so excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ is the way to happiness! It really is! The message of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the most important thing in the world! It truly has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. We are children of Heavenly Parents with divine worth and eternal potential, Jesus Christ is our Savior and because of Him we can find peace in this life and we will live again, and families can be together forever! Isn't it wonderful? The Savior lives, and if we follow Him everything will be ok. I have a testimony of this gospel! I know it is true! It is the way to eternal joy! And because of these things I know, because of the happiness which I feel, I can't wait to share this gospel with my brothers and sisters around the world! Shall we not rejoice in these glad tidings? I love my Savior so much for all He has done for me. "I believe in Christ; so come what may!"

How I live my faith

In my branch, I am currently called to be a Sunday School Teacher. In this calling, I have the privilege of preparing lessons for certain Sundays about various church topics and history. I hope that through this calling I will be able to help other young adults with struggles in their lives. Previously, I have held a calling as a Family History Consultant, as well as a Counselor and President in some priesthood groups. I have also been a home teacher with my Dad, to visit families which were a part of our ward and to help them with the different needs they may have had. I love serving within my church! I try to live my faith outside of my church as well, by providing service to those in need in the community and inviting others to come with me to church activities. I hope I can continue to live my faith better each day!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

David Archibald
I am so happy to have been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! That's because it gives me a greater opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love my brothers and sisters around the world! I think people are truly wonderful and have so much worth. I want them to be happy, and so I want to give them what makes me the happiest: the gospel of Jesus Christ! I know that it is the most wonderful thing on the earth, that it can fill every single person's life with joy, and that it can also give us peace in the life to come. I am so excited to proselyte as a Mormon missionary! Show more Show less
