Elder Steve Gwilliam "returned with honor" on Thursday, May 4 from his 2+ years of service to the Lord and His people in the Kansas Wichita Mission. The "plus" of his service came as the result of an injury - a badly broken left leg sustained during a sports activity only about 60 days after entering the MTC - which required him to come home for nearly five months to recover. Told he could count this as time served, he opted instead to finish what he started, serving from January 7, 2015 until May 4, 2017.
What's next for this tall, hardworking and dedicated RM? "Earning a degree in forensic science or criminology is what I hope will launch my future career," he states. He hopes to study at Dixie State University, but his father, commercial airline pilot Steve Gwilliam, Sr., must take mandatory retirement from United Airlines in September. To continue flying Steve, Sr. will likely need to move to a larger area with more employment options. As such, Steve, Jr. may have to look at furthering his career goals at Utah State University or Utah Valley University, depending on where his family lands!
In the meantime, he will continue sharing the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ in every way he can.
