Hi I'm Cole
I am from Great Falls, Montana. I can play 5 different instruments. I'm a Mormon.
I am from Montana. I love the mountains and the rivers. I kayak and love spending time outside. I am a musician. I play piano, organ, bassoon and saxophone well and then have also performed while playing the baritone. I play bassoon in the symphony orchestra at school. I am athletic and will play just about any sport. I played ice hockey at school.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I see all of the many blessings that come from a knowledge of who I am. I am a son of a loving Heavenly Father. I feel this love every day that I live. Because I am a Mormon, I know God's entire plan, The Plan of Happiness. The greatest expression of His love for me is His act of giving His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. The purpose of Christ was and is to help us return to live with God again. I have experienced and continue to change through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The basic principles are Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism by Immersion, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and then Enduring to the End. By living this pattern of the gospel, I have an increasingly abundant life. Part of God's plan for us is eternal families. The knowledge that my family is forever as I keep His commandments is a great comfort to me. My relationship with my family is eternal. It will never die. No matter what happens in this life, my brothers and sister will always be my siblings and my mom and dad will forever be my parents. I know this is true because I have felt the Holy Ghost witness to me that they are true. I read the Book of Mormon every day. I know that it is true. I study from the Bible, too. I know that it also is true and that both books of scripture testify of Jesus Christ and teach us of the blessings of living the gospel. I know that God has called another prophet to lead us through all of the trials and strifes today. Heavenly Father loves all of us and wants us to be happy.
How I live my faith
I live my faith every day. I am a full-time missionary. It is my calling to teach of Jesus Christ and His Gospel. I go about teaching people everywhere I go. I tell all that will listen to me about Jesus Christ. It is my purpose to bring others closer to Christ through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost and helping them endure to the end. I serve other people every opportunity that I get. I strive to be as like Jesus Christ as I can. Prior to becoming a missionary, I attended seminary every day before school. I went to seminary at 6:00 AM Monday through Friday. I also occasionally taught classes at church. I love sharing the gospel with others and seeing how it not only changes them, but how it changes me. I do my best to live how Heavenly Father wants me to live.
