Hi I'm Paden Burgess

I am serving a mission in the San Fernando Valley in California, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing both basketball and volleyball. I love being outdoors, and going on vacations with my family. I plan on studying Radiology after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, and was raised by its standards. As a teenager, I had many questions about the gospel, and felt like I was only a member because of my parents. I had read the book of mormon with my family and at church, but never put too much thought into it. I decided to read it again before I made any decisions regarding the church. As I read, I sincerely prayed that my questions would be answered, and if the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true church. By the time i finished the Book of Mormon, all of my questions were answered. I felt a warm feeling inside, and knew I was doing the right thing. I know that was the Holy Ghost testifying to me personally that I was where I was supposed to be. I promise that if you want to know more about the church, your questions will be answered if you pray to God with faith. I bare you this witness in the holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving an LDS mission in San Fernando, CA., where I can help others strengthen their faith in Christ, and be as happy as my family and I are.
