Hi I'm Colin Gill

I'm a triathlete from Colorado, I love Kentucky and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I had the time of my life serving a two year mission in Kentucky . I love competing in triathlons, I love colorado all that come with it (skiing, hiking, running, fishing, cycling, denver nuggets, and the denver broncos!!!!!!) My favorite motto is JUST DO IT! I wish I could speak chinese, spanish and american sign language. maybe one day. I am a student currently at Brigham Young University. Its a great place, Ive met a lot of people there who have influenced me in positive ways. One of the biggest is Amanda Horrocks - I look up to her a lot. She is a great example to me of what it really means to love and care for others. She is currently serving as a missionary - what a great way to show and live the light and love of Christ that is in her. She's my favorite person ever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - baptized when I was eight. Of course, when I was baptized I didnt know everything, I still dont. And that's ok. But I knew then that I wanted to follow the example of my Savior Jesus Christ and be baptized. That's all I needed to know. From a young age, I was invited to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As I did so, I began to see blessing and happiness in my life. When I do what is right, I feel great. I know who I am as a son of God. I have found eternal truths that God has given for his children's beneift and happiness. What keeps me motivated to do what is right is the Book of Mormon - Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Over and over again I have read from it and prayed about it. I always get the comforting assurance that is truly is God's word and therefore that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints contains the full gospel of our Savior! What a great book! Yet more impressive to me is how the God seems to always answer my prayers and send encouraging words and lessons through the Book of Mormon at times when I need them most.

How I live my faith

I just returned from serving a two year mission in Kentucky. I look forward to serving and helping others the rest of my life wherever i am! There is something about just getting out a helping others. I love it. Doing small things for other people always make me feel better when life throws hard days my way.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Colin Gill
"if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought. But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it lest haply ye be found to fight against God." The truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly and independent! The Church and its members often are faced with severe opposition. I believe that is a testimony of the truthfulness of the work. This does not, however, mean that the church wont grow. Despite opposition, this is the Lord's Church, He runs it and is gathering his sheep. that is why it continues to grow so much everyday.
