Hi I'm Bill

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas

About Me

I'm the 8th of 9 children and Born in El Paso,Texas after my parents and Mormons were asked to leave Mexico because of the Mexican revolution in 1915. I graduated from grade school,high school,university in EP and the to Univ. of Texas in Austin. After college went to work for El Paso Natural Gas Co in El Paso for 9 years. I left and started a Home Improvement Company for 18 years and then tiring of that business , two friends had Ford Motor Dealerships and thought I would like that, introduced me to Ford Div. office. and within 2 years purchased a Ford dealership in Casa Grande,Arizona. Had that 4 1/2 years and then sold it and got into the Real Estate Business with a new home biuilderfor 28 years. Retired at 76 years old. Lost my wife after 55 yrs of marriage and she passed away. I remarried and we went on a Mormon Temple mission to London England Temple for 1 1/2 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon Church. I Love the Mormon Church and what it stands for.I never doubted it was for me from the beginng. I received a testimony of its truthfulness when I was 17 years old.I was playing a game of Basketball in High School and during the game a opposing plyayers finger punched me in the eye. That night at home in bed my mother heard me crying with pain and took me into her bedroom and called my Father and my older brother gave me a priesthood blessing.The pain left immedietly.That was my conversion! No crying,sobbing,pain -------it all left when their hands left my head.

How I live my faith

At 9 years old in Sunday school class a lesson was on word of wisdom. I asked the teacher to stay after class. I asked about this Section of Doctrine & Covenants. To not use coffee,tea.tobacco,alcoholic or strong drinks etc. I made a promise to my Heavenly Father that I would live this commandment. I have never touched a cigarette or tobacco product,never touched beer,liquor,coffee,tea..I am pushing 84 years and my health is very good.People tell me daily I don't look or act 84 and look more like 50-60 years THIS CERTAINLY PROVES TO ME THAT THE SCRIPTURES TELL US THINGS FOR OUR OWN GOOD. I am presently working in the MESA ARIZONA TEMPLE AND SERVE AS A HOME TEACHER and ward missionary. I love Jesus Christ's Church and appreciate My membership in it!
