Hi I'm Hunter Halverson

I grew up in Layton, Utah and was born into the Mormon Church. I love being a member of this church, its a blessing.

About Me

My life has been a quite one so far. I was born and raised in Layton, Utah and I have never lived outside of Utah or the United States. I do, however, travel a lot. I have been to many different countries in my lifetime from Honduras, to France, to Canada. I am about to graduate high school and have just received my mission call to Yekaterinburg, Russia. I will live in Russia for 2 years and teach the Russian people in their language. I am excited to serve the Lord and bring people unto His fold. My mission to Yekaterinburg Russia will be one of the greatest experiences that I will ever have. I am honored to serve the people of Russia.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but my faith in Jesus Christ didn't come until I was about 13 years old. The first time I read the Book Of Mormon my faith in Jesus Christ was affirmed immediately. I felt the spirit of the Holy Ghost in my life and in all of my doings, I love having Christ in my life because He has truly shaped me into the person I am now, and my testimony in Him is the best thing that I could ever ask for.

How I live my faith

I consider myself a very active member in my community and am very service oriented. I love serving others and being able to see their reactions when I give them a sincere compliment or when I perform an act of service for them. I know Jesus Christ wants us to serve our fellowmen and to do unto others as He would do unto them. I am involved in many youth groups within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and also outside of the church. I am a student body officer at my high school and a member of the National Honor Society, I also participate in the Utah Fire Corps and volunteer at a veterinary clinic. I love sacrificing my time to others because I can feel God's love when I serve His children.
