Hi I'm Patrick Thompson

I grew up in Norman,Oklahoma. Im a convert. I love football, to sing, Im serving in the California Fresno Misson and im a MORMON!

About Me

My name is Patrick. I grew up in the pentacostal belief it was not easy to join a church that is so persecuted but just as the bible says the devil will roar like a lion against anything true and good. I knew the church was true and becuase of that i am serving a mission in the california Fresno mission. I love to play football and i coached back home. If you truly take the time to read the Book of Mormon you will find a witness of the truth and divinty of it. It changes lives. People do not understand the gospel because they do not have the Book of Mormon. It changed my life and it can and will change yours. I also love to sing back home i sing country music with blake sheltons former band and what a blast that is. It is my passion

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know this church is true. I have have had my answer recieved through sincere prayer i have a strong testimony of these things. The lord has been putting signs right in front of my face for a long time after i had prayed for a church. I love to preach the gospel to all who will hear because i know this is the true church that jesus christ has restored on the earth. He was our savior and our heavenly father loves us. I am serving a mission in the california Fresno mission. I know the book of mormon is true. My cousin who is a penacostal holiness says if its not in the bible we dont believe it well that night as i grabbed my BOM the next chapter in 2nd Nephi was 27 which compares to isaiah 29 prophesying of a sealed book coming upon an unlearned man. that was when i found this church to be true. I love this church more than anything i know its true and i say these things in the name of jesus christ amen.

How I live my faith

I lived by faith by praying and reading my scriptures. Following the lords commandments and trying to live as if jesus is standing right next to me. We must go to church and always strive to do our best to walk as christ. I share with everyone the gospel and the wonderful atonement of Christ and let them know how important Baptism is and will be in there lives as well as recieving the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands. Keep moving forward in the gospel and always make life interesting with the gospel.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Patrick Thompson
The definition of an occult is a religious gathering so all churches should be considered a cult. There is nohing occultish about this church. I have no clue where that idea came from but I Kno this church gives you agency meaning that you have th choice to do whatever you want. Show more Show less
