Hi I'm Colter Hughes

I'm was baptized when I was 18 years old. I am the only member of my family. I love this gospel and the happiness I have found.

About Me

I am 19 years old and it took me until a year and a half ago too find true happiness. I was a kid who was mad all the time and got into drinking and smoking pot. I was legally homeless for around 6 months. Missionaries found me and my life began too change. Thanks too them and my amazing friends I was saved. I got out of the nasty habits and my life began recieving many blessings. After I was baptized I found a home with members of the church. I am the only member in my family. I am currently serving a mission in Concepcion South Chile. After my mission I will be attending BYU-I and look forward too it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my life was saved by this Gospel. I was into the party scene, half my vocabulary was profanity and my priorities were screwed up. I didn't appreciate my family and it was constant turmoil to the point of divorce. In the Summer of 2010 I was found by Missionaries. Two Sisters. I took lessons from them for 7-8 months and then was baptized. I made this decision because of the power of their words, 100 percent sincere and the Spirit filled my soul. They taught me the importance of family, and I want that. I realized that I didn't need to unsuccessfully try to fill a void through alcohol and pot. I found something that permanently makes me feel good about myself. I felt happiness and peace for the first time in a long time. I read what they asked me too read and I truly prayed too God for the first time in my life and the answere I recieved I could not deny it. I know this church is the one true church. This gospel has given me something that everyone needs, sincere hope. I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet and that Thomas S. Monson is a Prophet today. I know this is the way too be truly happy and by living the principles that are tought in the gospel of Christ I have always been able to say that I am happy. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

Before I came on my Mission. I was a home teacher, a Primary teacher, a Ward Missionary and a Priest Quorum Advisor. Primary I taught 8 year old kids and as a Priest Quorum Advisor I taught 16-18 year old kids. Home teaching I went too other members' house and discussed doctrine of our religion and just talked about how they were doing and i could do anything too help them. I have done 250 hours of Community Service from cleaning up nature and fixing fences, to putting tracking devices on owls. I love too serve others. I am a return missionary. I am now Elder's quorum 1st counselor and do my best to help those brethren and sisters. I strive to read my scriptures and pray everyday.
