Hi I'm Randy Dunster

I am a banker, computer instructor, customer service trainer, Eagle Scout, husband, father and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a small farm of 60 acres in rural Missouri where I developed a love of the out-doors, plants and animals. I was home schooled through high-school and became an avid reader. I graduated from Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University and Utah College of Massage Therapy. I try to develop my knowledge in many areas. I would like to someday become a jack-of-all-trades and master of at least one. I love spending time with my wife and three young children. They are the joys of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. Both of my parents are life-long members. In fact, the first ancestor to join the church on my Mother's side was back seven generations before me and five generations on my Father's side of the family. As for myself, my questions to the Lord in prayer were answered early in my youth. I know the church offers the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and I would not leave that for anything. The Bible and the Book of Mormon are the word of God and provide understanding of Christ's teachings to the people in Jerusalem and the Americas. I have great peace knowing that my family will be together forever because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the authority that He gave his apostles to act in His name to bind on earth and in heaven such important ordinances as marriage. There is a living prophet who guides and councils us today just as the ancient prophets of biblical time. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides peace, joy, understanding and an eternal perspective of life and our purpose here on earth that is truly priceless.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is definitely a life-long pursuit on a daily basis. When I was 19, I served a two-year mission in Sydney Australia teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, which brought me great joy. In the church I help to coordinate the efforts of the full-time missionaries in our area on a daily basis in order to reach out to all those in need of service, strengthening or encouragement. To me, living my faith means to follow the council given in 1 Timothy 4:12 ..."be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
