Hi I'm Hunter

I was born in Arizona. I was raised in Seattle, Washington. I attend BYU. I love to play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play all sorts of sports. My favorites are soccer, hockey, and golf. I am an athletic kind of guy. My dream is to play soccer professionally in Europe. I intend on playing soccer in college after I serve my mission in which I have been called to Russia. I love my family and enjoy their company as much as possible. They are everything to me and I would not trade them for the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I could not imagine my life not being a Mormon nor would I want to. Being a Mormon allows me to know of a great happiness. This happiness is God and His plan for us. I have a knowledge of where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going. This brings such comfort to me and helps me live my life in a way that I know is pleasing to God, which brings an endless amount of happiness to me. I know that this is Christ's church and that it is the only true church on the face of this earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and also the Bible as far as it is the correct translation. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he helped bring about the restoration of this true gospel through Jesus Christ. I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson, that leads and guides this church in the way that God would want. I know that my Savior loves me and that I am a child of my Heavenly Father. This church is true and I would never deny it. It is what makes me so happy and I continue to be a member of Christ's church because I know it will lead me to an everlasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a day to day basis by being an example. Most of my friends are not members of the church so I try my best to be an example to them and also have a willingness to answer any questions they may have about the Mormon church. I have held a few callings within my church which are all voluntary. These callings help me serve the people in my ward and community. One special calling to me that I have is being a missionary for the church. I am serving a religious mission in Russia for two years. This calling is special to me because it is an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the people in Russia and bring them to the happiness that I have because of the church.
