Hi I'm Byron

I'm 20 years old. I'm from Aberystwyth. I'm the eldest of 4 children. I love sports. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports and musical instruments, eating lots of food and burning it off. I really enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family and friends. I'm waiting for a Visa so that I can serve a mission for the church in Los Angeles, California. Can't wait to get out there and spread the gospel which has brought me so much happiness! I love sharing the gospel with my friends and helping people learn about the things I know and love.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the Mormon church, but it is completely due to my agency that I am an active member of the church today. I love the principles and ordinances of the gospel, and the truths that it teaches. I recognise the happiness that living the gospel brings to me and I have complete trust in my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live a different life to many people in the world today, but the standards I live are there to make me a better person, both inside and out, and I know that the commandments I choose to keep are sent from God and are there to keep me clean and pure so that I can return to Him. In church, I have worked with the children, organising activities for them, I have taught lessons to the children on Sundays, I have done some office work for the church as well. I love serving the Lord and I'm willing to serve in any capacity I am needed!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

It's not 100% neccesary for everybody in the church to serve a mission, but for young men, from age 18, it is strongly encouraged. Also, many young women from age 19, are very enthusiastic and feel very strongly about their religious views and wish to share the message that has brought them so much happiness. Personally, I consider it an honor and a privilege to serve the Lord by spreading the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a duty that I am so grateful to be able to perform. Show more Show less
