Hi I'm Joshua Hunt

I was born in Spain and now live in Arizona. I am serving a mission in Santiago, Chile. I love basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

If you ever need to find me, I'm usually playing basketball with my friends. I plan on going to BYU-Idaho after my mission in Chile. I love music. Playing the drums and piano and making music on the computer. I'm usually always listening to music. At school I had my headphones on my person at all times and it made school surprisingly more enjoyable to go to.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church but I feel so lucky to be a member. It is so easy to take the blessings of the church for granted, but I do my best not to. My parents divorced when I was a little kid and my mother left the church so I have had the opportunity to live in a home following the gospel and one that doesn't really have any religious affiliation. As weird as it might seem, I consider it a blessing because for a very long time I've been able to recognize how big of a difference it is to have the Spirit in your home. You can really feel the difference just when you step into the home. It makes a house a home. I know the church is true and I intend to stay a member and hopefully one day get my mother and my brother to rejoin the church.

How I live my faith

In the church, I bless the sacrament for the entire congregation and bring sacrament to the homes of those who aren't able to attend church because of a sickness or disability. I try to help out in any way I can. I also visit two families in my ward at least once a month. My dad (who goes with me) and I have been visiting these two families for over ten years and have created a bond unlike any other I could relate to. They are family to us.
