Hi I'm Devin Patterson

I am a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love to share the gospel. I love to smile:)

About Me

Currently I am serving as a missionary in The Michigan Lansing Mission. It has been the greatest experience of my life. I love to play basketball, and i have a super sweet sneaker collection back home. I used to rock a pink mowhawk before I put a part in my hair (pink mowhawk isnt really an approved missionary haircut). I am most definitely a momma's boy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it has given me more happiness then any other thing. I went through life looking for something more. I felt like I was missing a piece of my heart. I searched for lots of ways to fill that void but nothing would work. I was challenged to read The Book of Mormon by one of my seminary teachers. As I began to read, things began to change very quickly for me. I started to find answers the questions that I had. My soul began to enlarge and I started to feel an amazing change within myself. As i finished the book I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if it was true. I received my answer from Heavenly Father as i realized that the hole in my heart was filled. The gospel of Jesus Christ had given me that when nothing else would. I know that the church is true because I asked Heavenly Father if it was true and He told me that it was.

How I live my faith

I LOVE The Book of Mormon. I truly know that it is the word of God. As a missionary I am so lucky to be able to teach people from all walks of life about its message. I have seen it change peoples lives including my own.
