Hi I'm Monte

I grew up exploring the backwaters of the Snake River as a child. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family struggled financially while I was growing up which helped us draw closer together. My childhood was a wonderful experience. My mother would read me stories after my siblings had gone to school about two brothers that were mean to their younger brother. I didn't know at the time why the story was so important to her until I read the complete book myself. When I did read it, I gained a testimony of it's truthfulness. When the people of the Book of Mormon followed Christ's teachings they prospered. I committed at that time to do whatever the Lord wanted me to do. I served as a missionary in Germany for two years and came home and met the sweetheart of my life at college. We were married and had seven children. Five of them have served missions. They have all married and have blessed us with, soon to be, twenty nine grandchildren. I worked as an electrician and facility manager for forty years without ever having been laid off work. I have been blessed beyond my wildest imagination. My wife and I have now decided to share the joy we have enjoyed our entire lives with others by serving the people of the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Christ is our savior and loves us individually. He will comfort and guide us if we will simply follow his council. That council is found in it's fullness in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it and was given an understanding of it's truthfulness when I was a young teenager.

How I live my faith

I never know what unexpected curves life will throw at me but I know it will turn out for the best if I will trust that it is all part of God's plan.
