Hi I'm Weston Hyde

I am from Layton, Utah. I am currently a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, My name is Weston Hyde. I am currently serving a mission in Fukuoka Japan. Before my mission, I went to Utah State University studying Business. I think after my mission I will continue towards my goal of getting my bachelors degree in that major. I love sports, mostly baseball, fishing, football, and skateboarding. I also love the ocean. Nothing is better than just laying on the beach on a sunny day. Actually, the only thing better is spending time with my family. I have a family of six back in Layton, Utah. I have one older brother and older sister, and a younger brother. I love every member of my family so much they are definitely all my best friends.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I choose to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is because I know that it is true. I have prayed many times for the Lord’s help at low points in my life and I have yet to not receive it. Other times when I am doing the things that I know are right, I feel that holy spirit upon me, and I know that I need to continue the things that I am doing. The Book of Mormon has also been a great tool for me to solve problems of my life. I may have been a Mormon all of my life, but not until I read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover did I truly understand the love that God has for us all. It is hard for me to express how much I love this church, and I can't wait to serve the Lord through missionary work.

How I live my faith

As a missionary of my father in heaven, I try to live my faith every day. I gt up at six and study my scriptures for an hour, i then study my language for an hour. After that, i study with my companion for a couple hours. When I'm done studying, my companion and I meet people and teach for the next six or seven hours. Later on in the day, my companion and i study more, and plan for the next day. So as a missionary in the field, if your being obedient, then your living your faith quite often.
