Hi I'm Hawke

I'm a missionary in the Washington Spokane Mission! I grew up on the Navajo Reservation. I love basketball. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I play basketball and go for runs to stay conditioned for sports and for life. I love to go hiking with my family and friends because I'm a family guy. I always placed my family and friends before myself.

Why I am a Mormon

So I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But I took it for granted growing up. I did everything that I was suppose to do because it was asked of me and not because I had wanted to do it. But there came a time when I had to make a choice. Through prayer I was able to understand many different things that I had been taught and things that I had learned growing up. Prayer has been an essential part of my life and when I come upon challenges that need divine direction, I turn to God in prayer and everything eventually works out. Not the way I intend, but the way God intends. This simple act had deepened my commitment to serve God by serving others. This is something that I want my family and friends to understand. They come first in my life. Regardless of circumstances that I may be in. They will always be first and foremost! Families are forever. Having this knowledge that families are forever brings peace to my heart and soul. That is what I cherish the most. My family.

How I live my faith

By serving a 24-month mission, I have the opportunity to be an example to everyone that I meet and talk with on a daily basis. Although the Savior, Jesus Christ, was rejected by His own, He kept on doing what He knew was right. He served endlessly and with love. As a missionary, I strive each and every day to serve others and teach others the Gospel the way Jesus served and taught the Gospel, with love and patience.
