Hi I'm Porter

I grew up in Idaho. My favorite sport is rugby. I'm a mormon

About Me

My favorite sports to participate in are rugby and wrestling. I love to weld and build/fix things with metal. I am an Eagle Scout and have received two year round camping awards and two 50 miler awards. I love the out doors. I like hiking, rock climbing, horse back ridding, and just plain exploring the wilderness kinda like Bear Grills. I will be serving a Mission in Brazil soon and speaking Portuguese. I took 3rd place in a district wrestling tournament and went to the state championship tournament my junior year in high school. My senior year i tore my meniscus and ACL in my knee and had to get surgery which took me out of the whole season of wrestling my senior year. I love being a Mormon and all it teaches me.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church all my life. My parents grew up in the church as well. when i was younger i never argued with my parents about the church cause it all just seemed to make sense. as i got older i made so wrong choices and had to use the atonement of Jesus Christ and repent. i didn't just grow up and receive my testimony. i had to work at it with persistence and patience and faith.i now have a testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. i can testify of the truthfulness of this church. i have felt the confirming power of the holy ghost leaving me with the certainty that this is the true church. i testify to everyone that the atonement of Christ is real and it can and will make you clean. all you have to do is sincerely ask and look for god's forgiveness. i know that the power of the priesthood is real and very powerful. i have witnessed and used it's power and i can testify to you that it can work miracles. I know that Jesus is my savior and that he died for me. I know that Joseph was a Prophet of God and that he saw God the Father and his most beloved son Jesus Christ. I know he restored the fullness of the gospel to earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet of God and that he and the twelve apposels are inspired by god today to lead and direct us to return to hid presence. i also have a testimony of hard work and persistence. being a faith full member of this church isn't easy. it requires a lot of faith and hard work. I have a testimony of Missionary work and that it will change lives. and i leave my testimony with everyone who reads it in the sacred name of Jesus Christ Amen

How I live my faith

I will become an an elder very soon and receive the higher priesthood. I will be serving a mission in Brazil.

What is the Book of Mormon?

the Book of Mormon is a journal kept by the ancient prophets for us to read and learn by today. it is the key stone of our religion and can answer any question you have about the gospel. if only you take the time to read it then i know your heart will be filled with the spirit. remember to get on your knees and pray to know for yourself if it is true. i did and i have know doubt that it is a true record of the ancient prophets.
