Hi I'm Quinten Wallace

I grew up in California. I'm going to New York for my mission. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I just got called to the New York New York North mission, and I was called to use Sign Language! I am someone who loves to be outdoors. I love to ride dirt bikes any chance I can get. It is my passion and joy! I love to camp and be out with nature, whether it be in the desert or the mountains. I also love to shoot guns, and find out a lot of the history behind firearms. I grew up in California, and have lived in the same house my whole life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and as a kid you had so much fun, because you got to play and sing a lot. I am a Mormon because I love the people, and love the feeling I get when I'm at church. I have had so many experiences good and bad that has brought me closer to my Father in Heaven. My mom got diagnosed with cancer and I thought my life was over, but instead of giving up, I started to read the scriptures, and prayed to my Father in heaven. I gained a true testimony of this church because of that experience. Now my mom is in remission, and has no cancer as of right now! I know that this church is true. I know that pray and fasting works. I know from experience that miracles do happen. I know I'm a child of God. I love this church. I know that God loves all of his children.

How I live my faith

In this religion service is a huge part of who we are. We are always asked to help out in our community. Through the church I was taught to use service everyday, whether it be big or small. I remember when I was going shopping, and I helped this elderly lady put her bags in her cart, and then I realized that she left her check book on the counter. I ran to her car and gave it to her. Even though that's something small, that lady still was very appreciative, and I made her life easier. In church we have something called callings. Right now I am a ward mission leader, which is something where I go and help teach with the missionaries, and I help give rides to church for people that are thinking about coming. These are just some of the things I do to live my faith, and try to get closer to my Father in Heaven.
