Hi I'm Pate

I'm from Andrews, Texas. Lived in east Texas for most of my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm extremely outgoing. I love sports, especially football, I mean come on, I'm from Texas. I was raised in Katy, Texas, and sometimes helped my Dad on his ranch, so I know the meaning of hard work. I enjoy any sport, but I prefer contact sports and extreme sports. I'm a car enthusiast. I was saving my money to buy a motorcycle, but that money is being better spent by going on a mission. I'm also really big into music. In school, I actually worked a soundboard for school/hobby. I'm hopefully attending Texas A&M after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My conversion story is pretty simple. My Mom remarried after she and my Dad had a divorce, and she married my now stepdad, who was already a member and he converted us to the Church. I was baptized at 10, and have stayed in the Church for eight years now.

How I live my faith

I participated in Scouting for about 11 years. In Boy Scouts, I was able to achieve the highest rank by becoming an Eagle Scout. I participated in FFA for three years, participating in many service projects throughout those three years. I was in many youth leaderships while I was young enough to participate.
