Hi I'm Patrick

I am 18 years old, and attend BYU Idaho. I leave soon to serve my mission in Guatemala Retalhuleu and I am a mormon

About Me

I am to serve a mission soon, and i leave March 19, 2013 and fly down to the Guatemala's MTC. I love just to stay all around active, and am always up for trying new things. I love to bike, run, and absolutely love swimming. I want to study Excercise Physiology at BYU Idaho, and later on become a Physical Therapist. I can honestly say that what consumes almost all of my time right now, is just a desire to learn and study all i can right now so that i am prepared to bring the gospel unto those who are waiting for it. I am learning spanish as much as i can right now before my mission, just thought i would try and get a head start haha. I am grateful for all that the gospel has brought into my life, and thank God daily for the opportunity to experience life and to live another day.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the book of Mormon and understand all the knowledge and information it contains. I know that this is the true church and the Lord shows that his work will be fulfilled through those who are willing to serve and have a sincere desire. I know that is why Joseph Smith was able to translate the Book of Mormon, and restored the gospel on the earth today. I know we are led by true Prophets, and Apostles today. That they truly are worthy of receiving council from the Lord to help guide us throughout our life. They are the Lord's mouth piece and excercise faith constantly to remain that way. The spirit is the key component that reassures me of the truthfulness of this gospel. I read the Book of Mormon and followed the instructions provided in Moroni 10:3-5, and i did recieve an answer reguarding the truth of the things i had read. That the church does provide the whole picture, and all of the doctrine to back it up. I would testify to anybody that you will find no other happiness on earth like the amount you will have when you finally recieve an answer to your prayers concerning this church.

How I live my faith

I strive to live the teachings that have been set forth by the church. I have had an overall change over the past few months preparing for my mission. I try and help wherever and whenever i can. I will do just about anything to help turn someones day around and just lead by example. All that i do is in showing my love for all that the Savior does for me. I have always had an eagerness to teach others about the gospel, for i have experienced all the joy and happiness it has brought into my life. I just try my best live everyday it as the Lord were right there beside me.
