Hi I'm Andrew Pugh

I'm a missionary. I grew up in Washington. I am a brother, son and Uncle. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am one of six kids in my family, but the other five are girls. I am 6´ 7¨ tall and love basketball. Iam currently serving a full-time mission in Costa Rica. I love swimming, life-guarding, basketball, golf, and football. I am from and have lived in a small town my whole life. I love my family and love doing missionary work because of how much the gospel has blessed my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the LDS church, but I really didn't become truly converted until high school where I had to go head on with temptation and peer pressure on a daily basis. I know this church is true because I have read the Book of Mormon and found it to be true which proves that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and if he is a true prophet then the church is true. I know this beyond a shadow of a doubt. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for my sins and by doing so is my personal Savior and the Savior of the world. The Book of Mormon is the most correct book out of all the books on earth because it was translated by the power of God through Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

I try to live so others know I am a Mormon. I am going on a mission for two years to preach the gospel to people who need it and I cant wait to get the blessing from the experiences that will happen these next two years. As i have been studying the scriptures and the doctrine every day here at the MTC I have come to fully apreciate the doctrines of the gospel and I now know how to find the doctrine. Doctrine is not complex, but rather the simple answer to questions that lead to a better understanding. I love sharing my faith and what I know about the gospel doctrine with people.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Andrew Pugh
Missionaries proselyte because they know this is the only true church on earth and want to share the restored gospel to everyone. They know that you can have a better life through accepting the restored gospel because they have seen it bless their lives, their families lives, the lives of members, and other investigators of the gospel and recent converts. They dont want to change your faith that you have. They just want to add to it because of the joy and peace they have received. Show more Show less
