Hi I'm Robert Waddell

I’m a nurse in the British Army and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I am a nurse working in the British Army. I love both aspects of my job, which has taken me to many beautiful places across the world. I absolutely loved my time in the States, Germany, France and Holland. When I am not away with the Army, I work in a hospital caring for orthopaedic patients. Both roles are highly rewarding. Out with work, I am a keen equestrian. I have completed my BHS PRT 1 and 2 tests, working towards 3. I am also training to represent the Army Medical Services in both show jumping and dressage.

Why I am a Mormon

After many years missing "something" in my life, I was fortunate enough to represent the UK Armed Forces in the States for 3 months. My host is a member of the Church, and through speaking with him on a daily basis my interest in the Church grew. Through my research and conversations with my host, I grew to understand and accept that the teachings in the Book of Mormon are true and that Heavenly Father truly does love each one of us. After returning to the UK, I met with the local missionaries and I was baptised on the anniversary of our Church's first prophet. This was an especial event as it truly did mark a turning point in physical and spiritual life. One I am glad to share with all of my brothers and sisters within the Church today.

How I live my faith

I have recently been baptised into the Church (23 Dec 17), so my journey is only just beginning. However, I have been called as a Ward Missionary, which is a role I am looking forward to pursuing over the course of the next few months. I am grateful for the opportunity to grow as I serve, and to help others do the same.
