Mitchell Anderson was born in Bellingham, Washington with a smile on his face and a huge hunger for anything. He moved to Houston, Texas when he was 8, and then moved to Durango, Colorado when he was 13. He fell in love with the mountains and started to enjoy biking, hiking, and running. He was raised in a Christian home, continually reminded by his parents to serve others before himself. He grew up with two older brothers and a younger sister, so he quickly learned the importance of two very different characteristics-how to be as tough as needed when the going gets rough and how to be weak enough to show compassion and love for his fellow man. This message did not immediately take for Mitch, and he balked under his parents until he heard and took to heart the verse in Colossians 3 that states as follows: “Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other, as the Lord has forgiven you.” Since having been saved, Mitchell has helped out at Whispering Pines Bible Camp and he assists mission trips to Black Mesa Arizona. As of right now, Mitchell is preparing to go to basic training for the Army in Fort Benning in September. In the interim, he spends his time building robots, lifting weights, jeeping, biking, and eating copious amounts of food.
