Hi I'm Peter

I grew up in Idaho Falls, ID. I´m a missionary in the Colombia Cali mission and, most importantly, I´m a Mormon.

About Me

I´ve lived most of my life in Idaho, however, I´ve lived in Missouri, Illinois, Montana, Idaho, and most recently Utah, for college. I attended college at USU (GO AGGIES!!) for one year after high school studying Biology, however, I´m now a full-time missionary for the LDS church. I really enjoy both skiing and snowboarding, mountain & road cycling, basketball, baseball, and soccer.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm often asked how I know the LDS church is the only true church on the Earth today. I can see why they would have this question, as I was born into a strong LDS family. Sure, I haven't attended all the churches out there, but the feeling I get from LDS teachings, leaders, and the Book of Mormon are so powerful and undeniable. I know that if anyone not familiar (or no longer involved) with the LDS church or Book of Mormon will open-heartedly read, ponder, and pray to God and Jesus Christ to know of the truthfulness of these things..That God and Jesus Christ will answer your prayers.

How I live my faith

I live my faith very strongly through my decision to serve a full-time mission. I put myself through learning a new language, being rejected over and over, leaving my family and personal life behind; all so I can give others the opportunity to hear and, hopefully, accept the one true church. Some people may think I'm crazy for leaving the US for two years, but I hope that people who are not familiar with the church will recognize that I must feel very strongly about my beliefs and become interested.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets roughly during the years 600 BC-400AD and is sacred scripture just like the Holy Bible. It is another testament of The Savior, Jesus Christ, as revealed to these prophets for the benefit of anyone who reads it. It was not written or any anyway altered, or edited by Joseph Smith. Rather, translated by the power of Holy Ghost to a modern language and is now available in MANY languages for the availability of as many nations as possible. Anyone who reads this book will draw closer to God, recognize the thruthfulness and power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and know by the power of the Holy Ghost that the book is true.
