Hi I'm Hunter Okerlund

I am a Competitive Power Lifter, I have received my mission call to serve in the Los Angeles California mission.

About Me

My name is Hunter, I just currently finished high school and are preparing to serve a mission in the Los Angeles California mission. I played pitcher on my high school baseball team and loved making new friends. I currently hold the national record for my age and weight. My family has 5 kids and a mom and dad. I love being outdoors and running around with friends, I love to hunt and fish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and joy it gives me to live my life with the promises that we make with god i love this gospel and know that without it me and my family would be lost. I have seen people go through experiences where they don't have the gospel in their life. I could not imagine going through a death in the family without knowing that you will see them again and that earth is just a short time in gods plan. I know that our heavenly father loves us and that he sent his son to show us the way, to show us what is right, to be the example and I know without Jesus Christ we would not be able to return to our heavenly father. The atonement is the only way back and I know that with whatever mistakes that we make he will forgive us and make us stronger with whatever weaknesses we have we just have to go to him with an open heart and be willing to do what he says. I know that families are a key stone in gods plan and that families can be together forever when we are sealed in the temple. Family is a big part in my life and they are just a big support system and willing to help you out with anything. I love this gospel with all my heart and wouldn't trade it for anything.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a role model to younger kids then me parents always tell you be an example they are watching, and that is true to every word you might think that they are not but they are. I am in charge of helping with lessons for Sundays and what activities we might do during the week.
