Hi I'm Abbey Hafen

I leave for the Philippines in June to serve the Lord, I've got flaming orange hair, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am preparing to serve a mission in the Cauayan Philippines mission- I received my call February 27, 2013 and leave the Missionary Training Center for the Philippines on July 29th! I started the violin when I was just 4 years old and haven't quit playing since. I attend University of Utah (go UTES) and play in the orchestra here. I love to wakeboard, ride wave runners, take naps, play tennis, and go on looooong night drives.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon... I could go off about a bunch of stuff that probably wouldn't mean much, but if you want to know the one reason, I will tell you. I am a Mormon because It makes me incredibly happy. The love, assurance, and hope the gospel of Jesus Christ offers helps me get by each day. I rely on the gospel every day of my life and the knowledge I have of God's love brings me peace. By being a part of this church, I have learned so much; I have learned how Jesus Christ can bring us peace and lift our burdens- and THAT is why I love the gospel.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith? I think about how much I know Jesus Christ loves me, and I can't help but live my faith. I taught the women in my ward once a month and I absolutely loved that. Teaching is the best way to learn something, hands down. I now am preparing to share the gospel in the Philippines. I strive to rely on my Father in Heaven by praying several times a day, expressing my thoughts and fears to him. I attend church every week and strive to become like my Savior and older brother, Jesus Christ.
