I’m McAllister W. I’m 14 years old and I’m from New York City, USA. It’s a busy place with skyscrapers and people, and I love living here. I take the subway to Scouts, and I learned to hail a taxi cab before I learned how to ride a bike! One passion that I have is longboarding along the Hudson River—with a view of the Statue of Liberty!Something that I love about the gospel is that a lot of it is focused on serving others. I recently helped a sister in our ward move, and that experience helped me recognize that serving people like Jesus Christ would help others’ faith grow, and that in turn helps my faith to grow.

My name is Rebekah C., and I’m 15 years old. I grew up in Michigan, USA, but I live in Shanghai, China! I love rescuing snails from the road after it rains. I have a testimony because I know Heavenly Father is real and that He loves me, and even if I doubt other things, I’ll always know that is true.
