Hi I'm Jason Nye

I have been born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa and I graduated high school in May 2016

About Me

I graduated from Valley High School in May 2016. I have been called to serve in the Benin Cotonou mission and will serve from October 2016 through October 2018, and afterwards I plan on going to BYU. I wrestled all four years of high school and loved it, I also enjoy rugby, ultimate frisbee, tennis, racquetball, and almost all other sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents are Mormon. I've stayed a Mormon and lived by its principles and teachings because I have received a witness from the Holy Ghost that this is the true church and that it is here on the Earth in order to help us become like God and live with him for Eternity. I know from watching my friends and peers and how they handle life, that this church and its teachings are the best way to handle life's obstacles and struggles. It will bring more joy to anyone than any other earthly method could come even remotely close to.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending all church meetings and by doing whatever I am asked to do. Some of the things include serving as an assistant with the youth, as a youth. I also visit families that have been assigned to me and my father and help them in any way we can.
