Hi I'm Hunter

I'm currently a missionary in the Nevada Las Vegas Mission. I love sports, theater, and being with family and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Hunter and I have lived the majority of my adolescent life over seas in the middle east even though I am an American citizen. Being in a military family, I have moved many times. In fact, the longest I have ever stayed in one place has been three years. Living overseas I learned many things such as a great cultural awareness and love for all of God's children, as well as a passion for helping others. I am a high school graduate and will be off to college after the closure of my mission. I have an interest and passion for theater. It was something that caught my interest very early and has stuck with me since. I have been in many plays and even wrote one of my own. I love sports, both playing and watching them. I ran cross country and track during high school. I also participated in Boy Scouts of America and even got to become an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a family of Mormons. My mother and father both found the church when they were young and have lived it ever since. I was lucky to be raised by them. I am a Mormon because this life makes me be a better person, I am happy when I live it, and unhappy when I don't. I have seen both sides of life. From those who do and do not have this gospel in their lives. I am a Mormon because I believe that this is the true church of God on the earth. I have had experiences beyond my understanding between men my age. Shared sacred experiences of God's power among us. This is why I follow, this is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have always tried to participate and serve the community and my church. Over my adolescent years I have had many church leadership positions over the youth my age. I have participated in many service projects such as cleaning up beaches, and parks, making hygiene kits for third world countries that need them, participating and organising many school activities. Some of these include plays, talent shows, fundraisers, and lifeguarding. I have had several opportunities in church to teach and speak. In my most recent home, I helped lead and organize the anual youth conference both years I was there. In Boy Scouts I have had several opportunities to lead the boys as Assistant Senior Patrol leader, Patrol Leader, Historian, etc.
