Hi I'm Josiah Pugmire

I grew up all over the place (Airforce brat) but I claim Albuquerque, NM as my hometown. I'm a missionary in Portland.

About Me

I'm currently a missionary serving in the Oregon Portland Mission and loving every minute. I play drums and plan on making a career out of music (wish me luck). I love rock climbing, longboarding, reading, slacklining, smiling, sleeping when tired, eating when hungry, helping others out in need, everything outdoors. I went to college at New Mexico State University for one year and plan on finishing my education after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am still a Mormon is a better question as I was born into the church and was raised Mormon. I've kept the faith of my parents because I have found out personally that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and that it is God's will for me to live it.

How I live my faith

Learning what God's commandments are, finding out for myself that they are indeed from God, and then living them. The blessings follow! I read about God and His commandments in the holy scriptures: The Bible, The Book of Mormon, The Doctrine and Covenants, and The Pearl of Great Price.
