Hi I'm Colton Fairbourn

Called to serve in the Chile Santiago West Mission.

About Me

I have grown up as a part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all my life. My ancestors crossed the plains and settled here in Utah. I am 18 years old and leave on my mission on October 22nd! I love being active and serving. I am left handed and have type 1 diabetes.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that our church was restored by Joseph Smith. I also believe that God has created every person that has ever lived on the earth (that he created). I believe we all made a choice to follow God's plan. His plan is the only way to everlasting and eternal happiness. The center of that plan is the Family. I love Family. I am a Mormon for all of these reasons and also because of the love I have for Jesus Christ; who atoned for all of our sins so that we can live with God and be like him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by acting on it. "Faith without works is dead". I strive to be the best person I can be and be an example to everyone else. Service is huge! "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of you God." (Mosiah 2:17) I love my Heavenly Father, and He commands us to serve and love everyone. That is how I live my faith.
