Hi I'm Gregory Hirst

I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm serving a mission in the Philippines. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my freshman year at Brigham Young University in Provo. I was called to the Philippines Urdaneta mission, leaving on May 30th. I love being outside, but I especially love being in the mountains since my favorite activity to do is rock climbing. I am very excited to be serving the people of the Philippines.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church my whole life. But I have still had to gain a testimony for myself. I love Christ and this gospel. I have a strong testimony of Joseph Smith and of Christ's Atonement. I am very grateful for this church because I know that it has changed my life in numerous ways, and I would not be the person I am today without it. I know that this church is the only true church on the Earth.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission in the Philippines, which has required a lot of faith. I love helping other people, and am so happy to be serving others. I know that God has prepared people and families for me to teach, and as long as I listen to the Spirit, I will be successful in teaching the gospel to others. Even though someone might not need to be baptized at this time, I know that God knows exactly how I can help other people.
