Hi I'm Tyler Wainner

Born and raised in Oklahoma, love being in the outdoors and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am curently on a Mission in the Washington, Tacoma area. Im loving every moment of it!! When im at home i love to be in the outdoors. Specifically rock climbing, camping and mountaineering! ive played baseball, football, and threw shot put and discuss and ran the 400 and 4x4 relay in track.

Why I am a Mormon

Ive grown up in the church. When i was in high school i started to loose focus on what was most important in life and even though i went to church pretty much every sunday i didnt understand the importance of it and exactly why i was still going. Towards my senior year i was starting to decide whether or not i was going to serve a mission. A few of my friends were preparing for theirs and it caught my attention. I started to think more and more about it and commited myself to reading the book of mormon through in a month. i did so and continually prayed about what i should do and if these things were true. i recieved my answer and am currently serving my mission. it is one of the greatest experiences of my life. i love being apart of the church because of the happiness and peace it brings into my life.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission in the Tacoma, Washington area. It is for 2 years. I go out each day trying to find people who want to hear about Jesus Christ and how he can help us out in our lives as well as teach people about the Book of Mormon and its importance. Being out here has greatly strengthened my faith and continues to with each passing day.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Tyler Wainner
We are not required to serve missions. It is strongly encouraged that all young men that reach the age of 19 serve a mission. It is still our choice. Since being on my mission i finally realize the significance of why they strongly encourage us to go. Not only did Jesus christ Say to teach all nations but if we really want to follow in his footsteps then missionary service is the way to go. The things that you learn about yourself and your whole outlook on the rest of your life changes. Also being able to see someone come unto Jesus Christ and follow his example is indescribable. Not to mention you are showing our Heavenly Father how much you love him and are thanful to him for everything hes given you by giving up 2 years of your life to serve him. Show more Show less
