Hi I'm Wayne

I'm a Mormon. I am greatfull to God to be a member of his true church on the earth today.

About Me

I was born in Utah and lived there with two brothers and two sisters in an active mormon family. At age 13 my father decided to go back to Iowa for graduate studies. Because of school expence we changed our economic statis substantially. I became very resentful of my father but the 3 years in Iowa schools helped me a great deal for competing in college. I fell away from church in rebellion at that time but never lost my testimony. I returned to the church after graduation, married and raised a family of 5 boys and 1 girl. I have been active since. I am an oral surgeon now retiring after 40 years. I have been active in scouts and am an ordinance temple worker.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known that this church is the true church of Jesus Christ. After I was offended by a church member, I fell away from fellowship with the members. I saw my character being destroyed. I know that I only hurt myself. I now find only joy in being part of the church, I love the people and refuse to allow anyone to deny me my blessings in the church. It has been a great home for me to raise my children and live in peace with my family.

How I live my faith

I have been active in teaching the gospel, missionary work, working with the scouting program for (30 years). I have also been active in working at the temple for 20 years. All of these callings have brought me great joy. I love to help others in need, in the church and also in the community. Being an Oral Surgeon has helped me serve those in pain. The church welfare program has given me opportunities for service to others in many ways. I love sharing the gospel to those who do not have a faith to sustain them in life's problems. My goal is to serve as a full time missionary with my wife. I know that God lives, he loves all of his children. He wants only our happiness and to have us return and live with him someday. This church has the authority and plan to bring us back to God's presences someday. I know that I can live with my family for eternity. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who restored this work from the ancient church. He translated th Book of Mormon to assist God in this restoration of the gospel and the authority of the Priesthood.
