Hi I'm Collin Ray

I have lived in Utah my whole life. I am going on a mission to the Argentina Cordoba Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In high school I participated a lot in Drama. I was the Head Technical Director over the auditorium in my school. I have not yet gone to college but I will upon the returning from my mission. I spend all the time that I can out with my friends be it hiking, wandering around the local stores or going to a mall. We joke around all the time and I don't know what I would do without them. I love spending time with my family as well. We love playing board games and another games we can together. I worked over the summer and well in to the fall at the zoo closest to me. I loved getting to know all of the people who worked there and it was the best first job I could have. I love getting to know and interacting with people.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life. My parents taught me at a very young age that this is the true church and I have never had any reason to doubt it. I believe that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the Earth, I believe that President Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet and that he receives revelation from God. I believe that my family can and will be together forever if we live worthily. I know as I leave on a mission that it is what I need to be doing and that I will help bring souls unto Christ that would not have had the chance if I had not gone. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that if you read and pray about this book that you will come to know that it is true. I believe that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ hears our prays and knows our struggles. Christ suffered and died for us so that we may return to live with our Heavenly Father. He is our close personal friend if you let him be. He will be with you no matter what you do, he will hear you. This is only a short part of my testimony, but I hope you feel and know what I say is true. I humbly say in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am going on a mission to teach those who have not learned what I have learned. I have taught several lessons in my ward, both to the youth and to the adults. I strive to be the best I can be in my daily life. I know that I am no where near perfect but I keep trying to be better.
