Hi I'm Colby

I'm a Mormon! Are you?

About Me

What to say, what to say? Well, the first thing that someone would probably notice about me is that right now I'm serving as a full-time missionary. What does that mean? Basically it means that I have the opportunity to spread the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ all day every day. Why? Because I want to, and because its one of the most rewarding things (if not THE most rewarding thing) that I've ever done. Where? In the Great Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission (basically from West Palm Beach FL to the Keys) speaking Haitian Creole. When? All day every day 'till February of 2012. At that time I'll go back home and recommense a "normal" American life-- look for a job, go to school, and hopefully start a family of my own. Apart from being a missionary I love pretty much anything to do with technology. Particularly computers; take 'em apart, put 'em together, in a hardware or a software sense. If I'm not found working on a computer, I'm probablly reading a book, riding my four-wheeler, mowing my lawn, playing xbox, or at the movie theater.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because, after having read a certian book (The Book of Mormon) I followed the advice given within and asked God if the book is true. I got an answer. The Book of Mormon is a "true" book. What does that mean? It means that the person who translated it nearly 200 years ago (Joseph Smith) was a Prophet called of God. And does God let prophets lead people astray? No. So, that means that all of the other things that Joseph Smith claimed-- that God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to him and called him as a prophet, that the authority of God to baptise and perform other saving ordinances was restored and resides within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and that Jesus Christ leads and guides His church on the Earth today. And then there's the fact that I can listen to the words of the living prophet today (and the words of the twelve Apostles) and put them to the test to see if the really are men called of God (and I've come to know that they are.) And then there is the way in which the church is run, the way it helps others, and the way it grows. All these evidences work together for me to show that the true Church of Jesus Christ is on the earth again today, and that it is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? Well, all day every day I'm a full-time missionary for the Church. What exactally does that entail? Find the link on this site to invite the missionaries over to your home. Then use the link and invite them over. They'd be more than happy to describe what it's like to be a missionary. Apart from being a missionary, I follow the words of the living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson.
