Hi I'm Raun Wahl

I love my family! Im an EMT and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well the first thing in my life that is very dear to me is my family. I love them so much and they mean so much to me. I work as a local EMT and I love it. I love and enjoy to help people and this job is one of the ways I can do it. I have a beautiful wife and four adorable children now, and I dont want to stop having kids. I have friends that cant believe i have so many kids and i want more. I just love them and enjoy the smiles and the love that they bring to the family. My children are awesome and I will give up everything that i have for them if i need to so they can succeed. I love my wife dearly. We have been married for aroud six years and working on eternity. She has been such a rock in difficult times and i really appreciate her. I am very familiar with sacrifice and rearing a family. Music used to be a passion for me and still is I love to play the guitar and sing lately. I have played other instruments and things and had a lot of fun over the years. But i would never put my family on the shelf because of my passion for music. It brings me great joy that the lord has moved me into this direction so that i can give my children what they really need. We live the gosple and are so happy because of it.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a mormon. Are you ready to read a novel? I love it. The Gosple of Jesus Christ rings true in my ears and in my heart. Even though I was born in the church I never really knew for myself of the truth untill i saught it out. I was like Joseph, very confused about all the different relegions of the world. I had tested the waters. I had an experement. I believed in a loving god. I believed in our lord and savior Jesus Christ. I read that daniel prayed three times a day. daniel was a prophet of god. So I worked on myself and prayed with genuine intent, and 14 days later I recieved a whitness that this is indeed the church that our lord and saviour jesus christ started. For truly he is the head of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. My sins are washed clean by his blood. I love him and am thankfull for the atonement that he has set forth. I cant wait to see him face to face and have him wrap his arms around me and say " well done thou good and faithfull servant". It is promised that we can recieve all that the father has I want that so bad. I want it for my family, and everyone else too. I know there is only one way anyone can get a conviction like mine and that is by seeking after his word. Seeking after richousness. living in faith and sacrificing the things of the world. I know it to be true I have felt the workings of the spirit so many times, but you have to have an open mind and a humble attitude and seek for his word, and he will show himself to you in spirit, and someday in person. The lord jesus christ is waiting. I know him and I cannot deny it he is my savior and redeemer. I can go on and on. I live the gosple and love it so much.

How I live my faith

Right now I dont have a church calling, but I enjoy talking to anyone who is willing to hear my testamony. I have been a ward mission leader and teacher. The calling ive enjoyed the most is being a dad. my wife and i really enjoy taking cookies to people. So do our kids. We have a genuine love for every one and wish to make everyones life peacefull when they are around us. I guess that is our calling lol.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Its not a requirement to go on a mission to be a mormon. But it is a blessing. I hope to go on one when me and my wife are able. Show more Show less
