Face Trials with Smiles

If you want to get to know one of the most genuinely good guys out there, read “Face Trials with Smiles” in this month’s New Era. It’s about Porter Ellett of Loa, Utah, a young man who lost his right arm in an accident when he was four years old but hasn’t let it slow him down a bit. He is a great athlete and has a great attitude. To see pictures of him in action, read the PDF version of the article.

  1. Great article! These member profiles are examples of the New Era at its best.

    Two interesting things were Porter’s perspective on those of us with two arms and his dating experience.

    Keep the article spotlights coming!

  2. Thanks for the comment, jnilsson. I think one of the strengths of the article was that it was left mostly in Porter’s words.
