Hi I'm Adam Colvin

I live in Rexburg, Idaho and have grown up next to BYU-Idaho. I will soon be an LDS missionary in Maceió Brazil. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an eighteen-year-old boy. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I know it is the only complete gospel on the earth today. I enjoy studying languages in school and on my own time. I am fluent in Spanish and English. I like spending time with my friends and family, cooking, and running. I am an eagle scout and have been involved with the BSA program for ten years. I enjoy playing sports, games, and learning about history. I have been called to serve as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been assigned to labor in the Brazil Maceió mission. I report to the São Paulo Missionary Training Center on July 2nd, 2014. I will prepare to preach the Gospel in the Portuguese language.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, not only because my parents have raised me in the church, but also because I know with a surety that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know that The church is lead by true and living prophets, men ordained of God to lead the church in righteousness and faith. I know that The Bible and the Book of Mormon together is the complete word of God. Because I know this, I live my life in a way that I can call myself a "Mormon", or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love the gospel with all of my heart, and would sacrifice everything for it. I am a Mormon because I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith constantly, by holding to my standards when I am tempted to lower them, loving and serving others as Christ did, attending church meetings every Sunday, participating in group service projects, and fulfilling my responsibilities for my callings in the ward. I am a Stake Youth Family History Consultant, Ward Family History Consultant, and Priest Quorum Secretary.
