Hi I'm Orion

I love astronomy and science I love engineering and im a missionary in Santa rosa California, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name Is Orion and because of that as long as I can remember I have loved the stars for years I wanted to be an astronaut and go out among the stars. after the space shuttle challenger exploded I lost the dream of going to space but I still loved the stars, and so I then pursued the career of astronomer. when I was 12 I was a scout and at the age of 13 I did the astronomy merit badge. it was at this time that I interviewed a real live astronomer. I learned that it was not all I thought it was I learned at that time that you only spend a few nights looking at the stars and the rest of the time you are teaching at a College or university who was sponsoring you. so that dream went out the window. I have retained my love for stars though it is just a hobby now. I now am pursuing the field of engineering, and want to be a civil engineer and build homes for people. I am an eagle scout, and have an amazing family that I absolutely love. I am a missionary serving in The Santa Rosa California mission. I have been out nearly one year and I love it. I love being able to help people out on a daily basis. I love seeing people come closer to Christ and the light that comes to them from living the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Christ atoned for our sins I know that god is our literal father in heaven I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of god sent to restore the fullness of the gospel back on the earth. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is the prophet today to lead and guide the church. I know that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints ( or Mormon church) is the one true gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example I teach those who are in the ward and try to be an example to those who are not yet members. I live my faith by being kind and accepting of others but standing tall in my ethics and beliefs.
