Hi I'm David Wayne Howell

I like to hunt, fish, and Comic Books (but Super Man is the best!). I like to go for walks.

About Me

I am a father of 3 kids. I love comic books and to cook fried chicken. Actually I just love to cook in general! I love Alabama football, Roll Tide! I like to fish and hunt as well. I enjoy walking too!

Why I am a Mormon

Basically, everything that the missionaries made sense to me. If I had a question, I could ask the missionaries and they would always find an answer for me. One of the things that really stood out to me was the fact was when I was in the hospital for a while, the members of the branch would come and visit me and make sure that I was doing ok. No other church would do that for me. One other thing that really helped me out was the fact that there was always an answer to my questions. In 2012, my liver went bad. The doctor said I only had about a year to live and then leave the rest up to God. In 2013, I went to the doctor again, my liver was at a 13, if it was any higher I would have been put on a liver transplant list. Recently I went back one more time to the same doctor and my liver had dropped from a 13 to an 11. I thanked God that day because I knew that I was living the true Gospel and that he has given me so much and blessed me so much. I know that if I can still live the gospel as close as I can, he will heal my spirit and will heal my body.

How I live my faith

I was recently baptized and am now working with the missionaries to help bring people come closer to Christ. I hold a bible study at my house on Monday's with the missionaries. I also help out with our local Family Home Evening by teaching some of the lessons.
