Hi I'm Erin Hunsaker

I grew up in Orem, Utah. I am nineteen years old, I am going to be serving an LDS mission in Chile, Osorno! I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 19 years old, I have been in college for 2 years now. I lived in and went to school in Hawaii, I love anything to do with the outdoors. I love to swim, camp, hike, and I love to play sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it truly makes me happy! There is no other church that can bring me this much happiness. Through prayer and scripture study I have come to know that this is the true church. By being obedient to His commandments and through repentance is the only way we will be able to live with our Father in Heaven again. I want others to be able to feel this great joy that I have, so I have decided to serve a full-time mission for the LDS church!!

How I live my faith

It is easy to participate in the community. What I love about being LDS is that I have learned to love doing service. I think that doing service helps me more than those I am serving. It is important to me to be involved in the community, any act of kindness is such a good example. I love helping those who cannot help themselves.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Erin Hunsaker
Of course not! We are taught to help and teach everyone, we do help one another, but by no means are we limited to only serving other members! Our church is very strong in giving aid to those in need. The Mormon church is very active in Humanitarian services, so as a whole our church does a lot of service. However, we also do service individually. One of the biggest acts of service a member can do is to serve an LDS mission, this is when a young man or woman leaves his/ her family for 1.5-2 years to go spread the word of our Lord. For the entire time period the individual devotes their time to serving those who are not members of our church. The purpose of this service is to show non-members what our church is about, to help them, and to show them how to receive eternal happiness! Our church is one of the most generous and charitable churches there is. Show more Show less
