Hi I'm Hayden

I am a missionary in Kobe, Japan. I am from Florida, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am serving a mission for my church in Japan! I am loving it! Before my mission, I have a twin brother named Kyle who is currently playing football at Byu. I have two amazing little sisters and great parents! I also enjoy boating and playing with my dog (Bear). I want to graduate from Byu law school and become an attorney!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to the church and have grown up in it but there was certainly a time when I was "converted". In high school I realized that I needed to figure out for myself whether or not this church was true. I started seeking advice from family members, church leaders and friends and ended up praying and pondering about it. I was looking for some big answer from God in order to know whether or not the church was true. Slowly I came to know the church is true just by the good feelings i had as I read the Book of Mormon and went to church. It wasn`t quite the big huge answer i was expecting but overtime became just as powerful. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a member of this church. I have had some rough times in my life but the knowledge that I have a Savior in Christ and a Heavenly Father who love me so much has honestly helped me through those times. It is easy to feel alone in this world but we all have a Savior who loves us and who has gone through so much so that we can be happy and live with our families forever! He has restored his true church on the Earth today and I am so grateful that right now I am able to share this church with the people of Japan!

How I live my faith

Well right now as a full time missionary, i have left my family and friends behind and set my life aside for 2 years so that I can serve the people of Japan and help bring them unto Christ! It is such an amazing experience in which I am learning so much! I do my best to serve people by random acts of kindness, teach lessons about Jesus Christ`s restored gospel, and just by trying to be a good example to those around me! A big way that I try to really show my faith is by simply helping and serving others! Jesus Christ always helped others and thought about them before himself. I`m trying to do my best to follow his example and help others like that!
