Hi I'm Porter

I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. I am currently serving a mission in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from high school in 2016. I was on the school swim team and track team. I swam breaststroke in swim team and did pole vault in track. I enjoy doing anything outdoors, such as hiking, camping, snowboarding, boating, swimming, and especially rock climbing. Right now, I am serving a mission. I was called to the Iowa Des Moines Mission. I left in June, 2016 and will serve for two years. After my mission, I plan on attending BYU Provo with a full tuition scholarship.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know it is true. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and testify of its truthfulness. I know that the gospel brings my family closer, strengthens us, and makes us happy. I know that following the commandments of God makes my life better and easier.

How I live my faith

I try to live in the way the Savior would have me live by serving, loving others, and studying the gospel. I complete callings given to me to show my devotion to Christ. I spend time with my family and try to be a good example for my friends. I love reading from and studying the scriptures to learn as much as I can about the Savior's life and teachings. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church in the Iowa Des Moines Mission.
