Hi I'm Elder Porter

I go to Williams Field High School and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Cole Porter. I was born in Mesa , Arizona. I currently live in Gilbert. AZ. Most of my youth I grew up just 2 blocks from the Mesa Arizona Temple. I attended Franklin East for half of my elementary education. I then moved to Gilbert and attended Gateway a K-8 school for 5th grade and then Franklin South for 6th grade. I went to Greenfield Junior High for 7th and 8th grade. I went to Williams Field High School for 4 years and graduated from there. I'm currently serving in the Tahiti Papeete Mission!!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon. I love the sense of being able to serve God and other people around me. I love attending seminary day and the chance it gives me to get away from the regular school atmosphere and be closer to God. I know the Book of Mormon is true. I've read it multiple times and each time i learn something new. I'm asked a lot why I continue to be Mormon if I'm not allowed to do anything. This is not true. Following the commandments is a choice I make everyday because I know it was given to a prophet of God. One of my favorite scriptures is Genesis 39:9 where it says "how can i do this great wickedness and sin against God". That's exactly my view point. If i know something is wrong and theres a consequence to it then why do that "wickedness". I have a testimony that Jesus Christ is the redeemer and Saviour of the world and that after dying on the cross for us he was resurrected. I know Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the grove and that he restored the true gospel of Christ.

How I live my faith

I'm called to preach to the restored gospel of Jesus Christ to the wonderful people of Tahiti. I'm going to be laboring for two years to help people find true happiness in their life. This gospel holds eternal truths and everyone needs a chance to accept it. My calling is to help guide people to their Saviour Jesus Christ
