Hi I'm Elder Mayhew

I am from Eden Utah and I am now serving in the Taiwan Taipei mission. I have been here for over 7 months and I love my mission!!

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am now serving in Taiwan. I spend most of my time out on the streets or knocking on peoples houses to tell them about Christ and His gospel. I enjoy missionary work and the blessings that come from it. I am from Eden Utah. I enjoy watching sports and playing sports. Basketball, football and soccer are my favorite sports. I enjoy going boating during the summer. A couple years ago I restored a 69 mustang. I am a lover of cheese.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know this to be the true church. I know that we all come from a Father in Heaven and that He truly loves us. I know that He sent His Son Jesus Christ down to the earth to provide a perfect example for us and to Atone for all of our sins. I know that only through Christ and His example and Atonement can we find true happiness in this life and the life to come. I know that we have a living Prophet on the earth, President Thomas S. Monson. I know that he can receive revelation for everyone in this church and that God and Christ reveal important truths through him. I know that Joseph Smith's experience is true. I know that he did see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and They, through him, did restore Christ's true church once again on the earth. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I have prayed about it and have received and answer of it's truthfulness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by studying the Book of Mormon, Bible and other scriptures. By praying to God, my Heavenly Father, everyday. I go to church every Sunday. And right now I spend almost all of my time trying to find and teach other people about Christ and His church.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Elder Mayhew
We can come to know God, our Father in Heaven, by first having the desire to know Him and then acting on that desire. Through acting on that desire we show God how big our desire really is. We also say that we are willing to trust Him and follow Him as we act on that desire. A great way to act is to get on your knees and ask Him personally in prayer. Through prayer and really paying attention to any special thoughts and feelings you can receive a personal witness of our Heavenly Fathers existence and His love for all of us. Show more Show less
