Hi I'm Andrew Perkinson

I grew up in Arizona. I love the snow. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of five kids in my family. I enjoy hanging out with my family just as much as being with my friends. During the summers growing up, my family, including cousins, would often go to the lake. I love board sports like snowboarding and wakeboarding. I also enjoy music, playing and listening to it. I'm horrible at playing it, but i like to mess around on the guitar and piano every once in a while. I attribute my liking of music to my mothers persistence in telling me to practice the piano. My father on the other hand, is more businessly inclined. I definately get that attribute from him. I aspire to major in accounting from BYU and later get my MBA in marketing. But thats too far in my future to think about right now. Right now I am just focused on being strong in my beliefs as a young adult.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a mormon? Well to be honest, I was born and raised as a mormon. But thats not why I am mormon now. I believe that I am a convert just as any one else is. It took a lot of prayer and scripture study for me to finally truly believe in this Restored Gospel. I had a lot of doubts as a teenager. But now that I have grown and tested this belief for myself, I know that it is true. I know that God lives and loves each and every one of his children that are living on the earth. I I know this to be true because I have prayed and asked the Lord if it is true. And he has born witness to me through the Holy Ghost, through the feelings in my heart and in my mind, that it is true. I know it is true and I invite everyone everywhere to find out for themselves if it is true.

How I live my faith

I attend church every sunday. I look for those in my ward and community who may need help in any aspect of their life. I take every chance I can to serve others in my community. I often help young scouts with their eagle service projects. Those vary from painting fire hydrants to assembling care packages to cleaning trash from the streets. Anything I can to do help make this world a better place. I am currently serving a two year mission for the church in the Washington Everett Mission.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Andrew Perkinson
Missionaries proselyte to share the hapiness that they have found in this Gospel with others. Show more Show less
