Hi I'm Garrett Ourth

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a recent convert. I converted at the age of 18. I'm currently preparing to serve a mission in Puerto Rico San Juan. I love to play all kinds of sports, my favorite being football. I love my Kansas City teams, the Chiefs and the Royals!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is Christs true Church on the Earth today. I was a member of the RLDS church, or known as the Community of Christ church now. Church leaders made decisions that I knew werent in harmony with the teachings of the gospel and so it led me to seek out a church that did. This led me to reading the Book of Mormon. After reading the Book of Mormon, I knew that it was true, that it was the word of God. And that Joseph Smith was truly a prophet and restored Christs church on the earth today. I then began taking discussions from the missionaries and knew that what they were teaching me was true. I was baptized on May 24th, 2014 and it has been the best decision of my life!

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a committee member for the activities. Along with 3 other members, we plan regular Monday night activities for young single adults to come together to have fun and to fellowship with one another. I love it because it is so much fun getting to watch everybody bond over and activity that I helped plan.
