Hi I'm Andrew Hugie

I was born in Mesa, AZ but have grown up in Logan, UT. I am serving my mission in the Finland Helsinki Mission.

About Me

I really enjoy playing golf and tennis. I love spending time with my family and being on the lake boating. In the winter time I love to snowmobile and ski. When I return from my mission in Finland I plan to attend BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because: one, I was born into this church along with a loving family that showed my how happy and important the church is, two, I have received a witness that Jesus is the Christ and that he atoned for our sins and that Joseph Smith Restored this church in the Latter-days, three, the knowledge of living for eternity with my family is the greatest thing on earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example of the believers. I live my faith by serving the Lord and helping "Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. As a missionary I am very blessed because I can live my faith every day.

What is the First Vision?

Andrew Hugie
As a young boy, Joseph Smith wanted to know what church was true. He turned to the bible for answers and came across James 1:5 that told him "If any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." Joseph did exactly what this verse said, he "asked of God." He went to a grove behind his house and knelt and prayed. These are Joseph's words describing what happened, "Nain valopatsaan aivan pääni yläpuolella, aurinkoa kirkkaamman, ja se laskeutui vahitellen, kunnes se lankesi minuun. Valon levätessä päälläni näin kahden Persoonan, joiden hohdetta ja kirkkautta on mahdoton kuvata, seisovan yläpuolellani ilmassa. Toinen heistä puhui minulle kutsuen minua nimeltä ja sanoi osoittaen toista. "Tama on minun Rakas Poikani. Kuule Häntä!" Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They told Joseph that none of the churches were correct and that he would be the one to restore Christs church on the earth again. Show more Show less
