Hi I'm J.R Waith

If you cant find im in purple in the back. I grew up in both Auckland,WellingtonNZ) Gold Coast(AUS) and Im a Mormon,loud and proud

About Me

Hello, My name is J.R and I'm just a normal kid in the gospel trying my hardest to be the best I can and making a profile because it looked like fun. :) I play pretty much any sport but my main one are Rugby Union, Gridiron, Volleyball and basketball. I love music and that's why I am going to study at BYU Hawaii to be a music teacher and a chief.

Why I am a Mormon

Like most I am born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints but as time goes by I have learnt to not rely on my parents testimony. Through sunday school, youth, seminary and other church activities. I find that as we attend these activities we gain knowledge that catches us as soon as it is said it sticks in our heads. I am blessed to be in a school with members that exceed 50 LDS youth and that it is a great help because they help you to stand strong in the gospel and that it is easier to convert new members as youth help you with the conversion of a friend and i can testify that there is strength in numbers as the Coomera Ward,Gold Coast (AUS) youth has converted 3 new members.

How I live my faith

I live mine like others, trying my best to keep the commandments of god. I am a member of the Coomera priest and always take the opportunity to share our gospel and to answer all the questions that non-members ask to the best of my ability and if not i'll call upon other youth to help :) I help add a little spark into youth to make it alot more fun to go to youth and constantly invite school friends to youth, camp and multi/stake youth dances.
