Hi I'm Hyrum Orton

I'm a Missionary, an Athlete, a High School Sweetheart, and a friend you can count on. I love the Lord and desire to be "All In"

About Me

I'm a Missionary of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in the Ohio Columbus Mission. I come from a family of 13, we are all blessed to have great parents. I enjoy playing sports, being in the outdoors, hanging out with my family and friends, and going on dates with my Girlfriend. During my mission experience I tore my ACL and had to return home for surgery. It took 10 months before I could return to my mission. Those 10 months were full of many highs and lows, but with the help of a supportive girlfriend and my family I was able to once again return to finish my 9 month mission. Getting back on my mission is a decision I will never regret. I love serving the Lord. Each of us will all go through our own personal trials and tribulations in life. I know that as we have Faith in Christ he will help us overcome all things.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have a Testimony of this church. After reading the Book of Mormon I truly felt the spirit bring peace to my soul. I know that because God Loves All his children he blesses us with families. He then proceeds to bless our families with living prophets to teach us and testify of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith is a living prophet! He restored the Church of Jesus Christ on the earth again. I know this because I have read the Book of Mormon, pondered it in my heart, experimented with the principles taught in it, and prayed to know if it is true. I prayed with the intent to act, once I received an answer I became all in. As a member of this church I am not withheld from trials in life. In fact it seems there are more trials the more I follow Jesus Christ. I know that opposition is real and is there to help us become better. I desire with all my heart to follow my Savior Jesus Christ and help Others to do the same.

How I live my faith

I live my faith striving to follow Jesus Christ. I will never be flawless, but I sure can strive to be a good person. Right now as a missionary I'm sharing my faith with those in Ohio. I'm helping others come unto Christ and find true joy in him.
