Hi I'm Mitchell Payne

I'm a Mormon. I'm serving in the California Redlands Mission from July 2016 to July 2018. I report to the mission home soon.

About Me

I am a missionary. I serve in the California Redlands Mission from July 2016 to July 2018.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I was born in the Covenant. Because I know My divine Potential. To live with my family for Time and All Eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures, going to church, and praying day and night.

What is the First Vision?

Mitchell Payne
I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!” To me, Joseph Smith's First Vision is a testament to me that Heavenly Father and Jesus christ Live, and that they Still talk to us today through the Prophet, and through personal revelation.
