Hi I'm Elder Hurst

I have lived in Pleasant Grove Utah my whole life. I have been called to serve in the Texas McAllen mission!

About Me

My name is Jeffrey. I love to be outdoors and love camping and hiking. I'm getting ready to leave on my mission to Texas. I love sports and played Lacrosse almost all through Highschool. I love to Scuba Dive and have been diving in many countries of the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church so I have always gone. However in my early teenage years I just went because it was excpeted of me, not becuase I wanted to be there. Then the church changed it's policy for when boys could serve their mission from 19 to 18. Up to this point a mission is something I had always wanted to do but didn't know if I could becuase I didn't feel like I knew the gospel was true for myself. Eventually it was my senior year and I needed to decide what I should do. Throughout most of my senior year I prayed every day to know what i should. In March of my senior year I recived the answer. After completion of the Book Of Mormon I prayed to know if it was true. Right after I said Amen I recived my answer. I was overwhelmed with the Spirit and knew that the Book Of Mormon was true. While I was in this spiritual state of mind I asked if i should serve a mission and I had the same feeling and knew without a doubt that I needed to serve a Mission as soon as I could. By recieving my own witness of the surety of the Book Of Mormon I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and he restored the Church. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and his son Jesus Christ. I know Jesus Christ came to this earth and ministered among his people and was crucified and offered himself so we can become clean and eventually return to live with our father in heaven.

How I live my faith

I just try to be the best example I can be. Living in Utah most have my friends have all been LDS but a few of them aren't so I just try and show them what a person is like who lives the gospel.
