Hi I'm Tyrone

I'm this, I'm that, and some other stuff. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mutt, half-Japanese and half-Caucasian, and proud of it! It gives me a little variety. I was born and raised an army brat, moving all around the country, the oldest of three brothers (my best friends). Running is one of my favorite hobbies, I love to go out somewhere miles away from everything where I can take a break and just think about things. I also like to play sports, read, and I love to hang out with my friends and family, all that and whatever else is awesome. I'm striving to become a medical doctor of some sort when I go to college. But right now, I'm serving a mission in Idaho and I love it here. The people, the places, everything is amazing. It's awesome to serve here.

Why I am a Mormon

Looking at the world, I can't help but believe in God. Science is viewed as evidence against God. But when I see all the wonders of it and how everything connects together so well, no other answer suffices except that it all leads back to God. Why I've chosen to be a Mormon out of all the choices I have? I could go on a long rant about why this church is the true church. But it doesn't matter. All of its technicalities fall back on whether this is the true church lead by Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon gives an invitation to ask God in sincere prayer whether this is the true church. I asked, and I got my answer that this is right. I know that anyone can get that same answer too if they will hear the missionaries out and ask God.

How I live my faith

God has blessed me with so many things. He's given me an amazing family and friends, a purpose in life, and so much more. I owe him an incredible debt that I can never fully repay. Doing service to others is service to God. So the closest I can get to paying my debt, is service. But I've found that service is more than just repaying a debt. It's what makes me happy. On my mission, I've had the chance to serve others and see the differences it makes. From seeing people grateful for the small things I can do: like maybe clean up their yard, tell them about the blessings of the gospel, or just being there when they need it; I've found that there isn't anything much greater. I feel this is the most important commandment of God and this is what brings me joy. This is how I live my faith.
