Hi I'm Weldon Hill

Raised in Utah. Worked 35 years in Missouri. Now headed to Adelaide, Australia for two years as a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Father of six children: three boys and three girls. Grandfather of twenty-six: sixteen boys and ten girls. Retired now at age 65, I will miss time with the grandchildren, but look forward to meeting many wonderful people in Australia. Certainly FAMILY has been and is my most valued temporal treasure.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my family and my desire for them is that they may enjoy the blessings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ not only in their own lives but also in the lives of their generations to come. My wife and I are planning to serve for two years in the Australia Adelaide Mission as volunteer missionaries.. During this time away from the family we love so dearly we hope to invite others to Come Unto Christ. I believe it is important for our children and grandchildren to see by our example that the most important things come into our lives by the service we give to others.

How I live my faith

It has been my privilege to serve in a variety of positions of responsibility. First moving to a small community in west central Missouri in 1978, where the dependent unit of LDS Church members consisted of six or seven families. Participating in their growth until 1985 when we were able to build a phase one church building. Subsequently witnessing a full size Chapel and the designation of LDS Ward status some twenty years later. Like waiting for the water to boil, good things take time. Best just to dive in and get to work. We know the end from the beginning.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Perhaps the time will come when you may need to live off of your food storage due to a natural disaster or prolonged unemployment. Or maybe you will never need it for yourself. Either way you may feel a sense of peace in your life just knowing that you are prepared and have the ability to assist someone else who may be in need. Show more Show less
