Hi I'm Winston Hilton

I'm an Academic Decathlete, I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I recently graduated from high school and decided to serve a mission. My favorite subjects were math and science, so I've decided to major in civil engineering once I get home. I participated in a couple of extracurricular activities at my high school. I was on the school swim team and the academic decathlon team. I really enjoyed both, but for completely different reasons. I managed to win a state championship in the decathlon this past year so that was cool. But I am putting my education on hold for two years in order to serve a mission in Tokyo, Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

I am not a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was born into it and, like Nephi, was born of goodly parents. My parents have raised me and my siblings in the church and have set a great example for us. They took and still take us to church every week. Their testimony is incredibly powerful and has given me something to lean upon every day for my whole life. Recently I have started to gain a testimony for myself and I've never been stronger in the church. I know without a doubt that Jesus Christ lives and knows exactly who I am. He loves me and atoned for my sins. Through the atonement He knows everything that I go through in my life and is willing to take away every pain that I might suffer. If I am willing to rely on Him, nothing is impossible. I cannot deny the truth of the message I have been called to share. I know with absolute surety that this Gospel is true. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it. I am serving a mission in Tokyo, Japan and I'm incredibly excited for this opportunity. I try to share my testimony of the gospel through my actions. I go to church every week and I try to serve others whenever possible. When I'm given a calling I do my best to magnify it, to do everything I can to make sure my responsibilities are taken care of.
