Hi I'm Dayton Newell

I was born and raised in Olympia Washington. I love to play football and soccer. Scuba diving is my passion. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 and am preparing to serve a mission to Busan Korea. I grew up playing football and soccer. i played a left guard in football and was a keeper in soccer. In my spare time I love to hike in the Olympics and go scuba diving around the Puget Sound.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but I was never committed to being a part of the church until a few years ago. I decided to commit myself after I started attending again and realized that there was an emptiness in me with out the church. Since then I have attended church and I have received countless blessings and personal happiness. I have relied on the Lord through many tough situations, and I have received help many times from him. Being a part of this church has benefited and blessed my life without a doubt, and I know that I would not be where I am today without it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best person I know I can be. I have helped serve others not only in my church but also in my community through school projects and camps. In my church I have served as a leader for different age groups and as a leader for camps. I now have a call to serve as a missionary, and I am assigned to labor in the Busan Korea Mission.
