Hi I'm Samuel Colson

Oldest of four and love my family to pieces. They are the absolute best! Currently serving as a missionary in Chicago

About Me

I'm the oldest of 4 siblings. I love my family with all of my heart and would do anything for them. I love sports, anything with a ball and I will be there. Especially if it's golf, I always want to be on the course. Not many places better to be. Currently serving as a full time missionary in the Illinois Chicago mission! Best place on earth, and you can't tell me otherwise. I love this gospel and am so blessed with this opportunity to share it with the people here! I'm here trying to do my best and letting the rest come.

Why I am a Mormon

How could I not be? I love being a Mormon, there is so much good about being one. You are automatically plunged into the lives of so many wonderful people, because you just walk through the doors of church every Sunday. Plus you get to have the peace and understanding of Jesus Christ's full gospel. I know because of this that I will have my family forever. I know that every trial or affliction will one day be made up as we strive to be as He is. Plus you get the Book of Mormon. Probably the best book that has ever been written. It puts the principles of the gospel out so plainly that as you read it you can't help but understand, and feel of it's truthfulness.

How I live my faith

As of right now I am serving as a full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Best job in the world! I get to spend everyday of my life for two years preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. Plus I get to do it in the best city in the world, Chicago! Having this opportunity has been the greatest blessing I could ever imagine. I love doing His work, and I love being able to wear a name tag that has His name on it. I try my best to set the example of someone striving to become like the Master everyday, and even though I may fall short, he still loves and supports me as I go about my day to day life. Christ is there I know it, he truly lives, and because of that I want the whole world to know.
