Hi I'm Riley Wheeler

I grew up in southern California. I have been called on a mission to Kobe, Japan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports but more specifically all types of water sports, in high school I played water polo. I grew up all my life wake boarding and doing all types of lake sports and being from California I am a pretty decent surfer as well. Now I've been in Japan for a year now, I've realized I'm a lot different from the person I once was. My testimony has grown into my life, it ha changed the way I act, think and speak. I will forever be grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ, the power of which has changed me. Also I've become quite the biker in this last year.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and because I have an ever growing testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I know with all my heart that it is without a doubt the word of God and that through reading it and praying to our Heavenly Father you too can know of its truthfulness.

How I live my faith

Well now I'm in Japan and I've lived here for about a year now preaching the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. I try to show my faith through my actions, I feel that faith is shown in those moments that no one else is there. My testimony is that God sees us and that He knows us and He knows when we do what is right every single time.
