Hi I'm Hans Warby

Soccer and Music complete my life! I love learning the German Language!

About Me

I grew up in Utah, with 5 sisters and 1 brother! I am currently serving a mission in the great land of Berlin Germany, and after my mission I will attend Utah State University. My major will be Bio-Chemistry. I love reading, singing, playing the piano, playing soccer (goalkeeper), and backpacking in the mountains!

Why I am a Mormon

While I grew up in the Church, I needed to know for myself if what my parents were bringing me to was true. The first thing I did was to start reading the Book of Mormon. This is a great book that gives so much insight and answers that we have. When I finished, I knelt down by my bed, and asked Heavenly Father if what I had read was true. I received a confirmation of its truthfulness from the Holy Ghost. In a church class, we had an activity where we would look at things of significance from the Old Testament, which would have a scripture attached. I was looking at a picture of Christ, and reading from a scripture in Isaiah. I was invited to write down my thoughts about what i was reading, and while i was doing so, a wonderful warm feeling came over me. It was such an amazing feeling that i almost started crying. I knew it was the Holy Ghost confirming what i was writing and feeling were true. I knew from then on that I had a great start to a testimony about Jesus Christ and his sacrifice, and love for us. I am a Mormon because I chose to find out for myself and i know with a surety that this is the true church here on this earth. As I have served the people of Germany, I have realized that the Church is true. It really helps people to realize their purpose in life, and they are so happy when they find the Gospel.

How I live my faith

One of the ways that I live my faith is by serving a full-time mission in the wonderful country of Germany! I love being able to share my testimony with others and inviting the Holy Ghost into their lives. I have felt the love of Christ in my life, and I am always willing to share that testimony with others!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Hans Warby
Many people have asked me the same question. As men holding the Priesthood of God, we are expected to serve, but the decision really comes down to the induvidual. I remember when I was younger, wanting to go out and serve the Lord for two years, but when it actually came time to submit the papers, I felt a little scared. I asked the Lord if this is something I should do, and I got a positive answer. So here I am, on a mission. I have served for 1 year now, and will work hard for 1 more year! Show more Show less
