Hi I'm Andrew Howe

I grew up in a small town in California, I am a college student, and on January 30th I will be a full time missionary!

About Me

I love the outdoors, especially the mountains that surround my little valley, I love to climb them, and to hunt and fish in them. I love to sing and make music! I jump at the opportunity to use my talents in order to entertain or to uplift others. I have completed 5 semesters of college now, I am now taking a break from school to serve a full time mission in the Chile Santiago West Mission. It is incredible to me that I am to learn a whole new language in such a short time so that I can help those individuals that the Lord would have me serve. I cannot wait to spread the gospel and bring others to Christ! The greatest gift I can give to others is the opportunity to come unto Christ as I have striven to do in my life and feel His love as I have.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to great parents who were already members of the church. Their faith and devotion to the gospel and to serving others has been a great example to me throughout my life. When there have been times in my life that my faith has wavered the members of my family have stood as a testimony to me. I know that I want to have the same happiness in my future that my parents and siblings have achieved through living in accordance to the laws and principles of the Gospel. Thanks to their example I have been able to trust the Lord and come to my own knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel and the reality of the atonement.

How I live my faith

Lately I have recognized the importance of loving and serving others. I know that Christs dealings with man were the ultimate example of love and charity. I have made it a goal of mine to become more Christlike in my dealings with others. Though I sometimes fail as we all do, I know that if I turn to Christ and strive to emulate Him and carry out God's will for me, that I will be forgiven of my shortcomings by the power of His atonement and my weaknesses will be made into strengths.
