Hi I'm Patrick

I'm a mechanical engineer. I'm a geek and my wife loves me for it. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young Mechanical Engineer working in Massachusett. I enjoy playing soccer and anything that involves the outdoors. I met, dated and married my sweetheart for all time and eternity while we were attending the singles ward in Boston.

Why I am a Mormon

I have an aunt and uncle who are first generation converts to the Church. They first introduced me to the gospel when I was 11. I was then a new immigrant from Hong Kong, still struggling to adjust to my new life in America. For as lost and confusing as I have felt then, the Church became a safe-house for me, a moral compass, even a place of spiritual refuge. My testimony of the gospel remained small during my adolescence until I decided to serve a mission to New York City. It was then I was able to see first hand of the power of the gospel and the effects it has in those lives that I touched. It was then I have received a even greater witness of the truthfulness of these things, namely in the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith and in modern day prophets. I've come to the knowledge that these things are true as I have witnessed and experienced the power of the atonement and priesthood in my life. And from these simple truths, I also know that Heaven Father lives and loves us, and that it is possible for us to return to live with Him again in which I'm very grateful for.

How I live my faith

My church life integrates very well with my day-to-day life. Like most people, I get up and go to work everyday for 9-10 hours, Monday through Friday. However, whenever I'm not at work, I'm usually doing something that is church related. For example, currently I've been called as the Young Men's President where I get to serve the young men of our ward ages 12 through 18. My responsibility to them ranges anything from instructing them the responsibilities of the priesthood every Sunday during church to going on any outdoor adventures on the weekends to even attending any play performances or sporting events they each may have individually. In short, my wife and I have basically became instant parents to all these boys each coming from different backgrounds, each with unique interests which we love so much.
