Hi I'm Walter Henry Balmer, Jr

I was born and raised in Saint Louis Missouri. I have been in the service twice ,once 1968-1970 and again1976-1989.

About Me

In 1966-1967 I joined Job Corp & worked for an all girl college till 1968 when I was called to the military & went to VIET NAM. In 1969, I was assigned to Fort McNair, Washington D.C. I moved to Arizona in 1970, attended Mesa commuity Collage, took up Landscape Nursery. In 1973 I was married to Betty Ethington. She passed away in 2003. In 1976, I was recalled back into the military till 1989 and served in Korea and Germany during which time I developed some health conditions leaving me with disabilities. Right now, I am looking to remarry due to meeting a loving angel that is helping me to be more happy and give me a more active life since my wife passed away.

Why I am a Mormon

You ask me why I am a member of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or a Mormom . . . This is due to be true because of ALL OF THE TEACHINGS OF CHRIST contained therein. I believe that Joseph Smith, Jr. was called to be a Prophet and the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I believe the Book of Mormon is true and was translated by the power of God through Joseph Smith, Jr. and is a second witness of the truthfulness of Christ's teachings and mission.

How I live my faith

I listen to the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I learn line upon line, precept upon precept. I listen, ponder, and I pray and continue to learn as I experience life on a daily basis. I believe in a life of doing good, in doing good to others, and in serving my fellowman.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Walter Henry Balmer, Jr
AS SAID IN AMOS CHAPTER 3;4 ,THE LORD REVEALETH HIS SECRET ONLY TO HIS SERVANTS THE PROPHETS. EZEKIEL CHAPTER 37;16-23,THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT AND THE BOOK OF MORMON AS THE STICKS OF JUDAH, AND ANOTHER FOR JOSEPH OF EPHRA-IM. WHOSE ANCESTORS CAME TO AMERICA ABOUT 600 YEARS BEFORE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST. JOHN 10.4.I KNOW MY SHEEP,THEY HEAR MY VOICE. JOHN 10,14-16 OTHER SHEEP I HAVE THAT WHICH ARE NOT OF THIS FOLD. THEM ALSO I BRING INTO THIS FOLD. ALL TOGETHER THOSE OF THIS NATION, THAT CAME 600 YEARS BEFORE CHRIST. JAMES CHAPTER 1:5,6: IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY, AND UPBRAIDETH NOT; AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM. BUT LET HIM ASK IN FAITH NOTHING WAVERING. FOR HE THAT WAVERETH IS LIKE A WAVE OF THE SEA DRIVEN WITH THE WIND AND TOSSED. THIS PROMPTED JOSEPH SMITH, JR. TO SEEK THE TRUTH FROM A LOVING FATHER IN HEAVEN. Show more Show less
