Hi I'm Delwin

I'm a Mormon and am looking forward to retirement and a mission.

About Me

I was born in Alamosa, Co, and live there on a farm until 1963 when we moved to Urbana, MO where I finished high school and married my first wife. We were married for 20 years and had 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. After high school I went to work for a telecommunications equipment manufacturer which required a lot of travel. We traveled from one end of the country to the other. We later settled in Clinton AR where I worked for Arkansas Telephone for 7 years. We then moved to Kansas City. This is where I meet my current wife and eternal companion. This is where I decided to change my life and get back to the religion of my youth and became active in the LDS church. That was in 1986 and have remained active ever since. My wife and I were sealed in the Denver Temple.  

Why I am a Mormon

After being inactive and away from the church for more then 20 years I always felt that something was missing and wanted so much to have a fuller life. After some personnel soul searching and suddenly finding myself single again after 20 years, I decided to become active. After being active for about a year I met the woman that is now my eternal wife. I had attended another church off and on and was never comfortable. Coming back to the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was like coming home.

How I live my faith

The Word of Wisdom always made so much sense to me and has been on of the easiest doctorines of the gospel to live. My wife and I try to attend church every Sunday and fulfill our calling to the best of our ability. We have recently finished a 3 year stint as primary teachers.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Most missionaries pay for their mission. If they don't have the funds many times the families help supplement the cost. Show more Show less
