Hi I'm Hyrum Rolihlahla Wainwright

I'm from South Africa and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love science and maths - going to be studying electrical engineering. I love all sports, I particularly love, swimming, waterpolo, football (soccer), rugby and table tennis! I love music, especially South African house, and I can dance. I love to laugh and make others laugh. I hate flying because pieces of metal should not be able to fly!! I love to cook, I also clean (if you pay me enough). I'm in love with the most beautiful woman, Amy Palmer. She is the love of my life and my best friend, and she lets me pop her pimples from time to time :)

Why I am a Mormon

What do you mean why?! Because this is Jesus Christ's church on earth. We have the fulness of the gospel in this church and the authority to act in God's name. This is where we can be most happy in life. This is the absolute TRUTH!!

How I live my faith

Well, I am a missionary right now, so I share the gospel full time because it's the most amazing thing I have to give (it's actually the most amazing thing fullstop!). Other than that I've tried to be the best example I can be to my friends (if you ever meet my friends, run away! - criminals). I live life to the full because I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ (as best I can), I don't feel restricted because when we understand our relationship in connection with Heavenly Father, we can know that He is always looking out for us. I love the scriptures, I study them daily, I contually try to learn what my Father in Heaven would like me to understand. I love prayer, it works because God lives. I guess that's how I live my Faith :)

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

What is being a Mormon like?

If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, just make a Mormon woman your wife. So from a personal point of view, get a Mormon woman to marry you. Really, this is the future! Show more Show less
