Hi I'm Joseph wilt

I grew up in Eugene Oregon. I love sports, hanging out with friends and music is my life, I am currently serving a mission.

About Me

I love sports any and all I try to play them before I knock them so far I haven't really found one I don't like! In my spare time I like to hang out with some friends or my family and watch movies or tv shows or just play some games! I am currently serving a LDS mission in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania mission (PPM) and am loving every minute of it! I love seeing all of the different cultures that are in the world and meeting all the people and hearing all of there life's stories! Music is my life! It was the thing that helped me get through all of the hard things in my life! Especially high school with out music I don't know where I would be, I am teaching myself how to play the guitar so I'm not good yet but some day I will be!

Why I am a Mormon

Unlike some member of the church I am a convert meaning I was baptized into the church and not born into it. My conversion took place when I was being taught by the missionaries about Joseph Smith, the amazing experience he had just blew my mind. I was twelve so to me it was so cool that God and Jesus Christ showed themselves to a farm boy at the age of 14. A simple farm boy and when I heard that I thought that it could happen to me and at that moment I knew that it had to be important if God appeared to young farm boy and not someone who was well known or had a lot of money. And ever sense I made the choice to be baptized I have seen a huge change in my life when I am following the teachings of Jesus Christ and when I'm not. The feeling you get when the Holy Spirit testifys is amazing you could be reading the bible or just listing to someone teach and the feeling you get is amazing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving! If it's one thing a missionary do its serve I can't tell you how many things I have learned just by serving others and the joy you feel when you do serve its amazing! I also I've my faith by going to church on Sunday and one thing I love about being a Mormon is I get to live it everyday of my life and not just on Sunday just by being myself I can brighten someone's day and when you can see how much joy you bring someone joy it also brings you joy and happiness.
