Hi I'm P. Rasmussen

I'm a Mormon. I have 1 wife, 6 children, & 17 grandchildren - I love them all. My wife and I are missionaries now; we're excited.

About Me

I was reared in and now live in Utah; but have also lived in Minot, North Dakota; Denver, Colorado; Peru; and Taiwan. I retired from the computer industry. I really enjoy being a grandfather; it's the greatest. My current favorite "hobbies" are serving in my Mormon church and volunteering for Amateur (HAM) radio service projects. I like to listen to uplifting music and my current favorites are "Alex Boye", "Lindsey Stirling", and "The Piano Guys" on YouTube - they are all musicians who are also Mormons.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an LDS family and was baptized the day I turned 8 years old. Some may think I was brain-washed but that is NOT so. I developed a testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and a testimony that He restored His Gospel and authority as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I prayed and the Holy Spirit confirmed that testimony -- I know it is true. I love Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the great family with which they blessed me.

How I live my faith

UPDATE My sweet wife and I have been called on a live-at-home full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We start August 3, 2015 for 18 months (and maybe more). We will be assisting international missionaries at the Provo Missionary Training Center (see https://www.lds.org/locations/missionary-training-centers). PREVIOUS I really enjoy attending church meetings every week. I pray daily and before meals. Occasionally I teach a lesson about the gospel to a class of adult males who hold the priesthood office of High Priest. Like many Mormon Church units, we publish a newsletter once a month -- I am the editor. I am also the webmaster for my ward. I really enjoy sharing information about the Gospel, about emergency preparedness, and timely topics for my neighbors.
