Hi I'm Rick

I'm from Cave Creek Arizona. I'm a sports guy. I'm a missionary. I'm a mormon.

About Me

Some things that i like to do are go to the lake and wakeboard, I love to golf with my family, and enjoy hanging out with my friends. I just graduated from highschool and am on a mission in Milan Italy right now. I love serving the lord and am happy to be on a mission right now.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up I went to church because my parents went to church and shared the testimony of my parents and never really had a testimony of my own. Everyone has to have a conversion and mine didn't happen till I was 17 and my brother was on his mission in Rome. My brother would always send home awesome letters from his mission and wonderful miracles that had happened on his mission. He always bore his testimony. I always thought to myself, how did he gain such a strong testimony in the book of mormon and the holy ghost, and all these other things. I finally told myself that I have never asked God for myself if the things that i was studying in church were true and didn't really have my own testimony of these things. I then decided to read the book of mornon and prayed if what I have read and the things I have been taught in church were true. I got an answer that was so sure that all this I have learned was true and after that answer and the feeling I got I can never reject or deny the truth of this gospel. Because of this experience I am on a mission right now.

How I live my faith

Right now I serve as a full time missionary in Milan Italy. Before coming out on my mission I served as a hometeacher and absolutely loved it.
