Hi I'm Dallin Wright

I hoped they'd call me on a mission, and they did, so now I'm in South Carolina! I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived my entire life with a deadly milk allergy, spent two years in South Africa when I was just a young lad, and almost lost the use of my right arm to a chainsaw. But enough about me, lets talk about my mission! I have the wonderful opportunity of serving as a representative of Jesus Christ in the South Carolina Columbia Mission. It has been the greatest experience of my life, and along with my Family, I wouldn't trade it for the World. I've enjoyed coming to know the Scriptures really well (that will happen to you in the bible belt). I've really grown to love me some nice home town southern cookin', and there's nothing I'd rather have then a nice batch of fresh cooked boiled peanuts.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love the Gospel! The hope and joy I have received from this gospel is amazing, and I don't know how I would survive without it.

How I live my faith

I was always taught to try and serve those around me. I try and always look out for those around me who may need my help. I've learned that you should always try to show love towards those around you, and so I do that by serving my fellow man. And that is why I am serving a mission. The lord has given me so much, its time for me to give to the rest of his children. I hope to bring the gospel into the lives of those who need it so that they can feel the blessings can bring into their lives, those same blessings that I have experienced. How could I live such a blessed life and not try to give other people the same opportunities.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Dallin Wright
No, we are not required to serve missions. But as we learn more about the restored gospel of Christ, and as we see how it can bless lives, we'd be crazy to not want to share that with the world. It is not a requirement, but a privilege, to go out and serve as a representative of Christ spreading his gospel to the ends of the world. We do not Have to serve missions, we Get to serve a mission. Nothing can bring more joy to a person, then when they get to help bring the fullness of Christs teachings into the life of another. Show more Show less
