Hi I'm Edward Hunt

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm currently serving in the Missouri Independence Mission.

About Me

My full name is Edward Moroni Hunt and i from a little town called Apple Valley located in the southern part of Utah. i went to Hurricane High School while there i participated in school sports such as wrestling and football. I'm a beast when it comes to Downhill Mountain biking! Before i Graduated i was called to serve my Mission In Independence Missouri where i am now serving for the period of 2 years. doing what i can to help people build there relationship with our Heavenly Father by inviting them to hear the much needed message of the restoration of the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and what felt like by the Church. we attended church on a weekly basis studied from the scriptures and used it to build our family as we all came closer to God. I can identify a lot of different ways the Church and the message we share has blessed my family and the lives of others. this Gospel is true its message is true and I Invite anyone who wants to know to read the book of Mormon and ponder the things in it. when you do you will be filled with the spirit and the Holy Ghost will testify to you of it's truth.

How I live my faith

In High School i attended seminary a class that is set aside to learn more about Christ and help build that foundation on Christ. one of the ways i live my faith is to attend Church weekly and learn how to apply what i learned there into my life to following week. another way is by studying from the Scriptures and applying the messages they contain. But the main way i show my faith right now is sharing it by serving a Mission. helping people come to Christ and to lean more about him even if we have to go door to door.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Edward Hunt
by studying the Book of Mormon and seeing to works of Christ you will learn of him and how he goes about his ways. but in order for you to KNOW him you need to pray about what your are reading is true. pray if god really is our god, pray about the book of Mormon and pray to know these things for yourself.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Edward Hunt
Jesus is the Christ. he is the son of God as said in the Bible in John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son". Jesus Christ came into the world to redeem his people and to be an example to others and most importantly he provided the "Atonement" which allows us to to be forgiven of sins as long as we make the proper steps. Jesus Christ is the son of God. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Edward Hunt
A Testimony is a "Decoration" of knowledge. when you share your Testimony with someone you are sharing the knowledge you have of Jesus Christ. this knowledge comes from the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost Answers questions and confirms the things we read in the scriptures. so when we do anything to build our faith or knowledge of Jesus Christ we build our Testimony. so if someone shares their Testimony with you they are sharing their personal witness of Jesus Christ or things he teach's.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Edward Hunt
When Jesus Christ came to the earth he established his church and gave Prophets and Apostles Priesthood Authority to run his church. Shortly after this Jesus Christ was Crucified, his Prophets and and Apostles were also rejected and killed. at this point the authority to run the church was no longer in the earth so after many years the Priesthood Authority to run his church was restored through a living Prophet just as it has been through out biblical history. Now that the Restoration has happened we can now do the Ordinances that are required of us to return to live with our father in heaven. the prof that this has happened can be found while reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know its true. When you know that it is true, you know that this book can only have been brought to pass by someone who god appointed to bring to use and that person was Joesph Smith. When you know the Book of Mormon is true, you will also know that Joesph Smith was a Prophet and that Priesthood Authority is back on the earth. Show more Show less
