Hi I'm Walter

and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've been a Air Force kid all my life, and I've lived all over the world. I was born in Maine, then moved to Californina, then moved to Japan, then moved to Germany, then to California again, then to Idaho, and then back to Japan. I love playing sports and being active, but soccer is my favorite. I love to listen to music and I play the tenor saxophone. I'll listen to pretty much any kind of music so long as the Spirit of God stays with me. I love grabbing a good book and taking a couple of hours and going into another world. I love my family so much. They mean the world to me, and I know that through living the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I will be able to live with them for now and all eternity. I love to have fun, I love to do what's right, and I love to help other people.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the sacrifice that Jesus did for each and everyone of us is real. The power of His atonement really can help us become clean from our sins. There is a sweet release that comes when we truly repent and try our best to follow the example that Jesus Christ has set for us. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. Just like the Bible, it contains testimonies and teachings of prophets that are about Jesus Christ. Because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith must be a prophet of God because he translated the Book from a lost language. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My Dad is in the Air Force so I've been able to see how the Gospel truly can bring a family closer together by living the Gospel. Moving around all the time can be hard for families, but I know because we've been a part of this Church, that it has made it easier on us, my family. The Church is the same all over the world. I've lived many places, and the only thing that changes is the people inside of the Church. The teachings are the same, the ordinances are the same, and the way the Church is organized is the exact same. I know this is the true church of Christ, re-established on the earth through a living prophet. There is no other organization in the whole world that is as organized like this. It is because it is lead by Jesus Christ himself, through a living-day prophet.
