Hi I'm Preston Burkhart

I'm a musician, a sports enthusiast, a dreamer, and most importantly... I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love music. That is the first and foremost hobby in my life. I love to write it, play it, and listen to it. I play saxophone, ukulele, and sing. I am missionary for the Church serving in two small countries in West Africa called Benin and Togo. I love to serve others and help them in whatever way I can, I get the most satisfaction out of life when I see someone smile.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, My mother was raised in the gospel as well, my father is a convert. I'm a Mormon today because it is what makes and keeps me happy. I know that my life could not be the way it is today if it weren't for the gospel. I have been faced with many choices in my life and if it weren't for the Gospel of Jesus Christ I would be living with many regrets right now. But I am happy that I have chosen the right and have avoided that road. I have a burning testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I have seen it change people's lives for the better. And that is just one of the many reasons why I have a great testimony.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in West Africa. I have learned that the Mormon religion is not just a religion but its a way of life. My model is the Savior Jesus Christ. I strive everyday to become like him. In these latter days we have guidance, an instruction book for life, if you may, called the scriptures. As a missionary I have found much power from the scriptures and how they can be used to solve almost any problem in our daily lives. Love abounds in my heart, as I stated above I LOVE serving people. Its what makes me who I am. I love to see people be happy. That's one reason why I love serving a mission; to share a message of everlasting joy. When I get home I will be focused on continuing my life and serving others.
