Hi I'm Orville Fisher

I'm serving as a missionary at a church historical site. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the husband of a beautiful woman and the father of six sons and the grandfather of 19 grandchildren with one on the way. My interests are the Gospel of Jesus Christ and my family. My hobbies are working with my hands to create various things. I make things out of wood such as turnings on a lathe, cabinets, etc. I like to draw pictures of gospel scenes. I like to carve and sculpt. I like to write novels. I love horses and anything to do with roping and handling cattle.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Brigham Young University where I was fortunate enough to be able to play basketball. I had played my freshman year at the University of Saskatchewan for a coach that was a Mormon. At the end of that year, I needed to go elsewhere for various reasons. The coach had gone to BYU and suggested that. I agreed and was accepted at that marvelous institution. I arrived in Provo in August of 1964 and joined the church in December, being baptized by my room mate.

How I live my faith

Presently my wife and I are serving an eighteen month mission for our Lord. It is a wonderful experience for us and we love every minute of our time here. We give tours to members of our church and friends from other faiths that come to this marvelous place. Everyone we come in contact with has enriched our lives. When we have to return to our home we will take with us many cherished memories which will help us teach our loved ones things that will enhance their lives. When we are no longer serving on this mission, we plan to attend the temple regularly and seek out our ancestors at the family history center as well as spend time with our loved ones...our sons and their wives and children.
