Hi I'm Rily Perrigo

I grew up in America. I have lived in 4 of the states: Idaho, Utah, North Carolina, and Georgia. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I just got called to serve as a missionary in the Philippines Cebu Mission. I am currently attending BYU-Idaho. I will eventually graduate with my BS in Nursing. I love to sing and play sports. I love to be with people and meet new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church where each sunday i go to church and participate in partaking the sacrament, but i also needed to find out for myself why i wanted to be a Mormon. Growing up it was part of the culture in my house but i still had questions and doubts that i had to pray to my Father in Heaven to know if these things were true. As i have continued to pray and read the scriptures and follow a living prophet i have been time and time again reassured that this is the true church on the earth today. The spirit has born witness to me that this church is the church of God. There is such peace and comfort in the knowlege that we gain in learning about the Gospel. I know that this is the true church, that we have a living prophet called of God who leads and guides this church through direct revelation from God. I know that my Savior came to this earth to atone for my sins and for all those who live on this earth. I know that our Heavenly Father wants us to succeed and he wants the best for us, if we just turn to him in prayer he will guide us and help us along our testing life on this earth.

How I live my faith

I am currently in a YSA which is a young single adult ward. It is a college ward and my current calling is the visiting teaching coordinater. I love serving in the church and being part of such a great community where i get to belong and interact with those who share the same standards.
