Hi I'm Carter Andrew

I grew up in Meridian, Idaho. I love the outdoors, being with my family, and serving the lord In the Houston Texas East Mission.

About Me

I am a missionary serving for the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in the Texas Houston East mission. I love to talk to people about anything, but mostly the gospel and how much it can bless there lives. I enjoy swimming, boating , and being outdoors. I will be going to college after my mission. I love my family and I am looking forward to having a family of my own. I love the cold weather and especially the snow. I love being able to be a missionary and having my own personality. I like being goofy and singing really loud and off pitch. I love riding my bike all day everyday in the hot humid sun and letting the spirit direct my path.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God is my loving Heavenly Father and that Jesus Christ is his son. I know that our Heavenly Father blesses us with a family so that we can come to earth and receive a body and to have the agency to choose right from wrong. I also know that he has blessed us with prophets and times of old and he has again blessed us with prophets who have the preisthood authority to reastablish and to organize Christ's church. I know that Jesus Christ performed the Atonement for us so that we can repent and become clean as we return to our Heavenly Father. I know that the world fell into an apostasy and the power of God needed to be restored. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God to restor Christ's church and translate The Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and is another testament of Christ and his dealings with God's children. I know this is true because I have studied the Book of Mormon and prayed to know its truthfulness.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by being a missionary for the next two years of my life and sharing Christ's gospel with everyone. I also live my faith by being the best me , that I can be. I don't want to be anyone else. I just want to let my light light shine and grow closer to Christ.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?
