Hi I'm Jeff Orgill

I'm currently serving a mission in Carlsbad California. I have the cutest nephews and nieces. I love lacrosse. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name's Jeff. I'm from San Antonio Texas where I have lived my whole life. I like playing lacrosse, long distance running, lifting weights, and ultimate frisbee. I am a freshman at Brigham Young University. I have always been interested in the study of government, economics, and politics and I like to try to see issues from other people's point of views so that I can better understand them. My favorite mountains are in Utah and my favorite sunsets are in Arizona. I'm the youngest in a family of six kids and I can't Imagine my life without a single one of my siblings. They have shaped who I am today. I am currently on a mission in California where I will serve the Lord and his people by spreading the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in what people call the "Mormon" church. From a young age I have felt the witness of the Spirit of God confirm to me that what my parents taught me was true. The Spirit, which testifies of truth will give us peace when we are doing what is right and will uplift us and teach us through feelings in our mind and in our heart. The furthest back memory I have of these impressions from the Spirit was when I was a little boy sitting with my family at church and had an overwhelming feeling of love and comfort during a hymn. Since then I have had many powerful experiences which have gradually brought me to a sure knowledge that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to this earth, that we have a living prophet who guides us, and most importantly that though the Atonement of Jesus Christ myself and everyone else on this earth can be cleansed of our sins and return to live with our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing what I have come to know is true with others. I am currently in Carlsbad California serving a two year mission where I invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive His Restored Gospel. I have received much joy from serving the Lord this way.
