Hi I'm David Peterson

I'm Canadian and Mexican. I am currently serving a mission in Scotland and Ireland. My friends call me Batman, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Scotland Ireland mission. It is so exciting doing missionary work! Its nothing like I've ever done before. It is a unique opportunity to help other find the light of Christ and help them to have better lives. Before i started my mission, i worked as an electrican on oilfield equipment. I love to spend time with my friends and loved learning about technology. I started longboarding almost two years ago now and it is something I absloutley loved doing before my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. And it has been such a great blessing in my life. I grew up with the church all around me and it has made me who I am today. I have always had a strong testimony of Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon, but I wanted to find out for myself if this was really true. So I prayed to Heavenly Father and asked Him if this was true. A sense of overwhelming peace and comfort filled me. I Know that there is a loving Heavenly Father and I know that this church is true. And because I know this church is true, I will always try to uplift those who are having a hard time, always accepting anything that my leaders need me to do. I try to live as Christ lived when he was on the earth. I love Him, and I and eternally greatful for what He has done for me.

How I live my faith

I take every opportunutiy to help out the members of my church to learn and to grow. I've been called as a teacher to teach the children in my ward about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love working with the youth. They have so much engery and life! I try to help them guide that energy to help them become better and give them a greater sense of direction in their lives. I love to longboard and play Xbox, and i make sure that i keep a healthy environment about it. Not doing dangeours stunts and playing clean games. I just simply want to to do my best and be a nice person. Never talk down about anyone and have some fun. You dont need to be too serious in life, but you need to make sure you stand for what you believe, even if you are the only one.
