I am Elder Hunsaker

Hello friends.  I am Elder Hunsaker.  I am a missionary serving in the Montana Billings Mission.  I am currently serving in Missoula, MT and I love it.  Before I came to Missoula I spent 6 months in a small town called Livingston, MT.  I worked hard and faced a lot of adversity throughout my stay in Livingston.  I love the people there and hope to return someday.  Before Livingston I served in Powell, WY.  I loved it there also.

  I've used different forms of the word, "serve" thus far and I'd like to expand on that thought.  While in Missoula, I talk to people, on the street, on their doorsteps, in their houses, anywhere.  My goal is to teach them about God's restored church.  Yes.  Our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ have restored their church to the earth.  They have called a prophet, who holds the authority to act in God's name for the salvation of His (God's) children.  This authority was lost to the world for centuries and it is restored in its fulness, never to be taken again from the earth.  With this authority came the structure God intends for His church and ordinances, such as baptism, that cannot be performed without this priesthood authority.  For the past year I have shared this and more glorious truths with God's children in Wyoming and Montana.  By doing this I am serving these people.  I am helping them to come closer to their Father in Heaven and their Savior Jesus Christ.  I am also serving God by aiding His purposes.  This service may seem selfless but from it I have gained more than anybody could imagine.  I have seen Christ's gospel change lives.  I have seen it change my life. 

I love this service.
