Hi I'm Wade

I am from Coalville, Utah and have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

Growing up in the mountains, I have always enjoyed hunting, fishing and just being in the great outdoors. I also love to play baseball. The New York Yankees are favorite team. I just barely finished up my first year of college up at Utah State University. After my mission, I hoping to go back there and graduate with a degree in Wildlife Science. But right now, I am looking forward to going on my mission and serving the people of Omaha, Nebraska.

Why I am a Mormon

Ever since I was a little kid, it has been a expectation of my parents to go to church each week. Even though they never forced me to go, I gained a testimony about the church through using my own agency. I don't know what I would do without the church in my life. Through the trials and tests that I have faced, I have gained a greater love for my Heavenly Father. I know that through faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ, that I can be saved from the trials in my life. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, and that he restored the gospel of Jesus Christ back to the earth. I know the importance of families, for without a loving family I might not have been active in the church. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve a mission full time in the Nebraska Omaha Mission. This is what I feel as the best way to serve others, even though it is not in my home ward. Though I don't have a church calling at the moment, serving a mission will be my main calling for two years. I try to look for opportunities to serve others around me in my home-town who could use assistance.
