Hi I'm Dayne

I am preparing to serve a mission in Kumasi, Ghana. I grew up in eastern Idaho and western Wyoming.

About Me

I am a high school graduate and a member of the Idaho Army National Guard. I went to Basic Combat Training between my junior and senior years and went to Advanced Individual training after I graduated. At the end of my senior year I recieved my mission call to the Kumasi, Ghana mission. I love hunting, fishing, and anything else in the outdoors. I especially love archery elk hunting. Spending time in the mountains helps me to recognize and be grateful for God's creations. I also played soccer and football in high school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member, but just like anyone else, I had to decide and discover for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one true church on the earth today. Through study and prayer, fasting, and constant self improvement I came to know that I do have a loving Heavenly Father. I know that his son, Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I know that he loves me and performed the atonement so that someday I can return to him. I am grateful that through Joseph Smith, the gospel was able to be restored to this earth in latter days. I know that we have a living prophet on this earth today. As I have been obedient to Gods commandments and promptings, whether I recieved them through the scriptures, the Holy Ghost, or recieved them through the Prophets and apostles (D&C 1:37-38), I have recieved blessings and a reassurance that I am loved. I know that God has a plan for me.

How I live my faith

As a missionary I have the opportunity to search the scriptures and apply the things that I learn. I am also able to share those things with those willing to listen. I am blessed by the atonement of Jesus Christ. It allows me to repent and become more like my Savior would have me be. That in turn allows me to share what I have learned.
