Hi I'm Virgil

I am the husband, to my best friend (she laughs at my jokes) and a father to 2 of the best children in this world.

About Me

I am the 7th of 8 children and I grew up on a farm/ranch near a small town in New Mexico. I lived among the Navajo and Zuni people who I respect and care about. I served a Mission for the Church in Brisbane Australia, I love and miss those people. I enjoy telling people about how God has blessed me. I am now serving as the First Counselor in a Bishopric in church. I like books and collect rocks from all over.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a fifth generation Mormon on both sides of my family, but I had to find out for myself that this is Jesus's church. I am a Mormon because I love God, my wife and my children. This church is where I have found happiness and peace and where I know God wants me to be. I have studied many other faiths and have found alot of good in most of them.

How I live my faith

I try to follow Jesus Christ's example in all I do. I enjoy praying and asking God to trust me with someone I can help and this prayer is answered.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

God is the ruler of the Universe and there is order in all of it, Authority is needed in most things man does, why would it be different in his church here on the earth? Show more Show less
