Hi I'm Elder Zachary Houghton

I am currently serving a mission in the Germany Berlin mission. I love the work and enjoy serving the Lord.

About Me

My name is Zach. I come from a very loving family. I was born in Pocatello, Idaho in the year 1995 and moved to Idaho Falls when I was four years old. I was raised by amazing parents that made sure I understood the importance of the Gospel in my life. I have an older brother and a younger brother and two younger sisters. i love spending time with my friends and my cousins. I really enjoy summer but winter is amazing. I really enjoy cross country skiing and being outdoors. If I could, I would go up into the mountains everyday. I worked at a day camp for kids 8-12 years old and it was the best job I could have asked for I made great friends with many of my co-workers. I also worked at a garden center and learned a ton about plants and made more great friends. I am currently serving as a missionary and I love it more than anything else in the entire world. I have seen the atonement of Jesus Christ work in the lives of so many and have seen to many miracles to doubt that this is the true church of God.

Why I am a Mormon

I know without a doubt that this is the Lord's church on the Earth. I have also seen the atonement work in my life and I have experienced the love of our Father in Heaven. I have felt the freedom that comes through repentance and keeping the commandments of the Lord. I have truly witnessed miracles and have gained a personal testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and I know that it gives my a plan for my life and through it I can stay on the path that leads to eternal life. I know that Joseph Smith really saw God, the Father, and Jesus Christ. I know that I have a Savior that supports me in my times of hardship and that makes me strong!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary. I am helping others to come unto Christ by inviting them to come closer to Christ and to exercise faith in him and his atonement. I love talking to everybody around me about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I have seen the changes it makes in the lives of others. I try to focus all my time on my holy calling as an Elder of the Lord's church. I know that as I do so I wee see so many more blessings.
