Hi I'm David

I was born in California, and grew up in Salt Lake City. I'm a rock climber and will be serving in the Philippines.

About Me

My name is David Petersen I was born in California and lived there until i was 7 but now I have lived in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was raised in the church and love the happiness that it brings to my life. I love to rock climb in the mountains near my house as well as just be outside and explore. I love my friends and family and especially look up to my friends that are already on missions. I will be serving in the Philippines, Cauayan City mission and will be leaving in just about a week from today on October 23rd, 2013.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ because it is applicable everyday. It may nt always be easy to follow through with some things but it is awesome that it is clear on a day to day level the things we should strive for. I love that the gospel can help us become happier as long as we strive to follow and live it just a little more every day. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to true happiness in the life and the life to come so I am so thankful that I have been able to grow up in a knowledge of it and have a huge desire to share this truth and knowledge with all those who wish to eel the same happiness and reap the same blessings.

How I live my faith

In my ward I have been teaching people in their homes for the past few years. I love to help do service activities and would like to teach with the missionaries before I leave for the missionary training center next week. I enjoy helping my mother in her calling in the nursery and love all the little kids in our ward. Soon however I will depart for my 2-year full time mission teaching the people of the Philippines about the restored and everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ.
