Hi I'm Justin Wayne

I was born and raised in Utah. I love the great outdoors. I'm serving as a full time missionary for two years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah. I grew up surrounded by the mountains which I love to explore. The red rock of Southern Utah is my favorite place to be, I feel so close to the Lord there. I am the youngest of five, with two brothers and two sisters. Nothing means more to me than my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS faith, but I received personal witness of it's truth when I was 17. Wanting to know for myself if it was true, I prayed earnestly for the truth and received a powerful and indescribable feeling from the Spirit of the Lord and have since received further witness. I know that this is the only true gospel on the face of the earth and I love to live it. I may only be 19 but I know that this is where I need to be. I know that my Savior Jesus Christ lives and loves me and each of us personally. For those wanting to know the truth, read the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ, and ask in prayer if it is true. If you ask with real intent, wanting to know, the Spirit will come to you and you will know for yourself. I promise these things are true.

How I live my faith

I am serving as a missionary in Chile, where I am giving two years to the Lord to teach people about our faith. I love this church and it gives me more joy than anything in my life, so I share it with whoever I can. I don't get paid as a missionary, I am here at my own expense, but the Lord blesses me abundantly and I have never felt better.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Justin Wayne
Members of the church aren't paid for our service, we give it freely. We believe that God gave us all, so we give what we can back in service to him in church callings. These callings aren't chosen by the members but by inspiration from God. Show more Show less
