Hi I'm William

I'm 18 years old. I am from Bountiful, Utah and am serving a mission in Vancouver, Washington. I love soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 18 years old. I am the second of four children. I am from Bountiful, Utah and I went to Viewmont High School. I grew up in the church and most of my family are members of the church. I have an older sister that is serving a mission in Birmingham, Alabama and I am serving a mission in Vancouver, Washington. I have learned so much about the gospel while I've been out here and I am so excited for the rest of my mission, for this great opportunity to share it with everyone else. I love studying the scriptures, especially the new testament; I love to learn about the Savior's life and how he taught the people. I hope I continue to learn like I have during these first few months of my mission. I also love soccer; everything about it. I am a big fan of Real Salt Lake and also a huge fan of Manchester United. I love playing it too and I love watching it and learning all about it. I also enjoy mountain biking, camping, hiking, skiing and snowboarding, boating, music, and spending time with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the gospel and I have been an active member my entire life, along with the rest of my family members. But I have experienced what it is like to not have the Lord's influence in your life and I hated that feeling. I never wanted to feel that way again. Since that time I have had numerous testimony-building experiences that have strengthened my resolve to be the best person I can possibly be. So I decided to live the gospel to the best of my abilities and to try to become the man the Lord wants me to be and I know that is enough for the Lord.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission in the Washington Vancouver Mission. I will be preaching the gospel for 2 years and I am so excited to serve the people of Vancouver. I have learned so much more about the gospel just since I've been here. I've drawn so much closer to Christ and have learned a lot about how the spirit speaks to me and works through me to accomplish God's will. I am so excited to serve the rest of my mission and I hope my testimony continues to grow as I serve. I also have learned so much about how the members of the church that are not or cannot serve a full-time mission can still be amazing missionaries in their own community. I hope that after my mission I will continue to serve the Lord and those around me, because this gospel has blessed me more than I could've ever imagined. I strive every day to let the Lord work through me to bless other people. I love this gospel.
