Hi I'm Robert Patterson

I grew up in Alberta, Canada. I'm a musician. I have been called to serve a mission in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a musician. Out of the many instruments I've learned to play my favourite is the acoustic guitar. I love to write my own music. I love the outdoors and other sport activities such as hiking, basketball, snowboarding, soccer, longboarding etc. I operate heavy machinery at a landscaping company, but I aspire to one day be a doctor.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in this gospel, because my parents were members before i was born. I was supported by their testimonies and faith till I grew up and had to decide for myself if I knew what I had been taught my entire life was true. Slowly but surely I have over my teen years prayed, searched the scriptures, and sought a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I have, through sincere intent and the mercy and love of God, attained a testimony of our Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith the prophet and the restoration of Christ's church on the earth today in our dispensation of time, the Book of Mormon and its legitimacy, and the fact that this church is led today by living prophets and apostles of the Lord and that revelation from God still happens today. I know our Heavenly Father loves us, for He sent His son, Jesus Christ who atoned for all of our sins, afflictions, pains, heartaches, trials and so much more. I know we can repent because of Christs atonement, be baptized by immersion, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end for as we keep the commandment and follow Him, we will be blessed and receive eternal life and one day return to live with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating and assisting in youth and young single adult activities. I also am serving a full-time 2 year mission for the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. I have left the comfort and familiarity of home to serve the Lord with all my heart, might, mind and strength.
