Hi I'm Pattraphan Yarak

I'm a คนไทย (Thai). I'm chillin' in Ubon in the hot palmy church. I'm serving as the family history specialist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to take care of animals and gardening in my spare time. I attended Ramkhamhaeng University in Bangkok, Thailand in education. I love to do family history and help others with their family tree. You don't want to be on the same road as me when I am on my mo-ped ;D. As of right now I am currently taking care of my ill mother in the hospital. I love to read the Book of Mormon while waiting at the hospital and at anytime that I can get my hands on it. I would like to share one of my most favorable verse with all of you who are reading my profile, turn to page 143 in Thai or 2 Nephi 27:23. I know that we have to do our part of the work before we ask Heavenly Father to help us and we will receive what we ask for.

Why I am a Mormon

I met the missionaries 27 years ago when I was attending the Ramkhamhaeng University. I chose to learn with the missionaries because I was astonished of why there were foreigners in my homeland, so I decided to take a chance and listened to the message that they had to share. I was impressed at the new knowledge of what I was learning from them about the Gospel. I know that this Gospel is true by the power of the Holy Ghost. I prayed many days and nights to receive my answer and simultaneously reading from the scriptures. I can feel the power that they have in my life and cause me to change to become a better person and a follower of Christ.

How I live my faith

I am striving to be a good example by helping out in the branch by serving as the family history specialist. I am also a return missionary who served in my homeland of Thailand. I also served as the seminary and institute teacher for 13 years. I love serving others and know that when I am serving others, I am only in the service of our God (Mosiah 2:17).
