Hi I'm Carter Allen
I am currently serving a two year mission for my Lord. I love it! I am dedicating these two years of my life to help others receive the countless blessings that I have received by being a member of His church. I plan on going to school when these two years are up to become a Collision Repair Technician. I love playing with cars and working with my hands. I am the oldest of 3 boys. I like spending time with my family and friends.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book of scripture given to us through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that this is the True Church of Jesus Christ in these latter days. I know this because I have sincerely read the Book of Mormon and taken upon myself the challenge given in it: "We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true." I have received my answer from Heavenly Father just as the promise is given: "Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost." I know the Book of Mormon is true because of the power of the Holy Ghost, and I know that anyone who sincerely desires that same knowledge can receive it by that same power. Being a member of His true church has blessed my life and my family greatly.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
We go on missions to share what we know to be true. We have been greatly blessed by the knowledge that God has called another prophet to lead and guide us. We have been blessed by the Priesthood that was restored through God's prophet. We want every person to have the opportunity to experience those same blessings individually and in their families. We know that the Priesthood is necessary for salvation, and for families to be together forever. We simply want to share this with everyone.
How does making right choices help us make more right choices?
When we are obedient to God's commandments, He blesses us. These blessings lead us to desire to do good, which in turn results in more right choices. Our Heavenly Father loves us, and he rejoices with us when we make right choices.
Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?
I share the Gospel because I have been greatly blessed by the knowledge that God has called another prophet to lead and guide us. I have been blessed by the Priesthood that was restored through God's prophet. I want every person to have the opportunity to experience those same blessings individually and in their families. The gospel has blessed me so much in my life, and I know that it can bless any person who seeks it.
How can we develop greater harmony in our homes?
My family is always in greater harmony when we spent time together. We would always try to eat dinner as a family. Also every Monday night we would hold Family Home Evening, where we would study the scriptures and do fun activities with each other. These thing truly blessed my family.

How I live my faith
I live my faith by dedicating these two years of my life for him. I am a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I teach people about his doctrine and his church here on the earth in these times. When my two years are up, I will continue to live my faith by keeping my promises I've made with my Heavenly Father, which include serving all those around me and being the best person I can be.
