Hi I'm Peter Lopez

I'm from California (specifically the bay area). I enjoy either telling or creating a good story. Also ball is life.

About Me

I grew up in Concord, California. I love doing anything athletic or outdoors. I am a big fan of being spontaneous and doing something crazy. I play basketball and I also play the violin. I love my family so much they're almost like family. I am currently serving in the Arkansas Bentonville Mission (previously the Oklahoma Tulsa Mission) and It's the most fun i've ever had.

Why I am a Mormon

Granted I was "raised in the church" but I think anyone who is a mormon or knows much about mormons knows that being a mormon and specifically an "active" mormon is not something you can do just because your parents said you should so you're just kind of going with the flow. Being a mormon is more of a lifestyle and not an easy one at that. But once you know or even just believe or desire to believe that effort and that journey of discipleship is worth every effort or doubt or ridicule you've ever received. Im a mormon because being a mormon draws me the closest to Christ and as affect of that offers me the most happiness. And I love being happy.

How I live my faith

Well as a Missionary I live my faith every day by working hard to share this happiness with other and to invite them to follow Christ more fully! But of course that wouldn't mean anything if I didn't live it myself and truly was grateful for all my blessings in life! So I do my best to be happy each day and to help other find that happiness and ultimately I think that's what this gospel is all about!
