Hi I'm Elder Payne

I'm a missionary for the LDS Church. I love videography, the outdoors, and grilled cheese. I love the gospel. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've lived in Utah my entire life but have really enjoyed traveling to different states and countries; I love traveling and the outdoors. I have been engaged in videography and photography throughout high school and have tried to use them to enrich my school and community. I've been a member of the LDS church for my entire life and have been called to serve as a missionary in Melbourne, Australia. After serving my mission, I plan on returning to Utah and going to college.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the biggest foundations of my testimony of the Mormon church is that I know I am absolutely happiest when I follow its teachings. This church is centered around Jesus Christ; I know that he lived and I know that I can be perfected through him and his Atonement. As I have read the Book of Mormon and listened to the leaders of the Church and heeded their counsel, I have come to a knowledge of their truth. To me, this is truly the restored church of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the latter days. I invite any and all to come and learn of it and its message.

How I live my faith

I believe that the most important way I can live my faith is by trying every day to be more like Christ. By loving and serving my fellow men, as well as serving an honorable full-time mission, and one day raising and supporting a family in the gospel that I know and love. What better way to spread the Gospel than to live happily and serve others. I am happiest when I am trying to be like Christ.
