Hi I'm Cole Bangerter

I love my family and friends, speaking spanish, and wearing Vans. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 19 year old kid from the 435. I've always loved to have a good time and do fun things! I love playing sports, long boarding, ride motorcycles, skiing etc. Whatever gives me a thrill, I'm down to do it! I've been blessed with the best family and friends someone could ask for. My family has always been there to help and support me in whatever I am doing in my life. My friends are a bunch of goons and so dope! We've done so much stuff together that has just made the life that much better! I now live in Santiago de Chile and am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love this place, the people, and my life in general!

Why I am a Mormon

I´m Mormon because I know it is the truth. I know it is the truth because I asked God. And He answered. Through diligent study and prayer of the Book of Mormon I have strengthened that testimony. Like it says in Alma 5:46.... The Holy Ghost bears testimony to the truth. I know that a normal man couldn´t have wrote a book that brings so much light into one´s life. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet called of God to translate the Book of Mormon and restore the Lord´s gospel. The gospel is the key to having happiness and enjoying life. The answers that the gospel of Jesus Christ give and offer us is more than we can ask for. The blessings and love that my Father in Heaven has offered me in my life is something that I could never change. The Book of Mormon is the word of God, Joseph Smith was the Prophet of the Restoration, and Jesus Christ is our Savior. It is the through Him and His Atonement that we can be forgiven from our sins and better ourselves everyday. He is what gives us hope and makes it possible to return to live with our Heavenly Father. Because of that, I am a missionary teaching this gospel to those who don´t know God´s plan and His truth. I love every moment and opportunity that I have to teach and share this good word with others. I love it. Soy Mormón y soy feliz!

How I live my faith

The faith you live is determined by your actions. I live my life happily and enjoy what comes at me! I live my faith in a way that I can better become like Christ. I believe that you can always better your life and as long as you act upon it and strive to have the mindset to accomplish it. How do I live my faith? I put all of it in the Lord Jesus Christ and trust in Him and His promises. If we have faith in Him, impossible is nothing.
