Hi I'm Hunter

I grew up in Provo, Utah. I love biking and spending time outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was called to serve as a missionary in Morristown, New Jersey. I will be entering the mission field in October of 2014. It was not an easy journey for me to get on a mission. It took a lot of changes and personal sacrifice for me to be called to serve. The theme scripture that I have chose for my missionary service is in the Doctrine and Covenants section 58:4 it reads: For after much tribulation come the blessings. Wherefore the day cometh that ye shall be crowned with much glory; the hour is not yet, but is nigh at hand. This is not your usual missionary theme scripture, but it really does describe my journey to get on a mission. I spent 16 months working very hard to become more physically prepared to serve. As I look back on my journey, I am amazed at how wise Heavenly Father is. This was not the path that I wanted to take. I just wanted to simply submit my papers and have a call issued. If things had gone my way I would not be the strong person that I am now, better prepared to serve the people of New Jersey.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the church, my parents were members when I was born and have raised me in the church. Being a member feels right to me. Although I was born in the church, I have chosen to still be a member. I love going to church because of the way it makes me feel. I can feel the spirit when I am there, and I know that going makes me a better person.

How I live my faith

Before going on my mission I served with the youth of the church. I would help teach on Sunday and go on camp-outs with the boy scouts. As I am entering a new phase of church service as a full time missionary, I will be literally turning all of my time over to the church. I am doing this because I know this church is true. I also want to share the happiness that the gospel brings me with other people. I also love to help other people and hope to make that a large part of my missionary service.
