Hi I'm Vic

I live in Medical Lake, WA. I served in the Air Force 24 years and now work as a carpenter at a veterans hospital. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 39 years and have four children. I lost my son in the war in Iraq. We miss him very much. While I was in the service, we were stationed in England for eight years. I enjoy sightseeing, fishing, camping and wood working. My family is my life and we are very close even though we live so far apart. I enjoy going to visit our children and especially our grandchildren. My wife and I enjoy spending time together walking and going out to eat and talk. I also enjoy gardening and movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe that the family is the most important thing we have and this church does everything that is for the family. They are one of the largest sponsors of Boy Scouts, that develop our young men. The young women have programs to help them develop into well rounded mothers. The primary organization teaches the young children about our Heavenly Father and his love for each and every one of us. This church teaches that families can be together forever even after this earthlife. I would love to be with my family for eternity. This church teaches us to be of service in our community, country, and family. They have programs for the men and women that help them develop a love for life, family and God. Through Prayer and study, I know this church is true, God loves me and that I am important to him. This is not just a Sunday church but a way of living everyday. I invite anybody to check it out for themselves. You will find what I found, something that makes me a better person.

How I live my faith

I serve in the church as a High Priest group leader. I work closely with our branch president in organizing service projects for the community and members. In the Priesthood I also serve as a hometeacher in which I visit the homes of some of our church familes and make sure they are doing alright and present a short gospel lesson. I also encourage and arrange for members to attend the Temple. I consider my calling to be a call from the Lord.
