Hi I'm Packer Wilkes

I have lived in Utah County my whole life and I'm heading to Guatemala for 2 years on a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and I am soon leaving for a missoin to Guatemala City. I come from a large family and have been a church member my entire life. After my mision I will be attending Utah Valley University. I love all sports and am a huge fan of all local teams.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and guidance that the gospel provides in my life. I know that god has a plan for me. I know that he is mindful of me and my stuggles. I have chosen to be a Mormon because without this gudiance that the gospel provides I would be lost. But with the gospel I find direction. Following the straight and narrow path is what brings me true joy and happiness. I know that god lives and that he loves us more than we can imagine.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to become better each and every day. In the gospel we are suppose to progress and become more like our father in heaven, the best way i can do that is by keeping my convenants and becoming better. I am called to serve in Guatemala and can not wait to begin progressing the work there.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Packer Wilkes
We can know our Heavenly Father by sincerely praying to him. We also can come to know him by taking action to follow him. When we do what he wants us to and follow in his footsteps we grow to become more like him and also to know him more personally. By keeping his commandments we show that we love him and in return he will show that he knows and loves us. Show more Show less
