Hi I'm David Patton

I was born in Michigan but last 4 years I lived in Bardstown KY. I'm preparing to go on my 2 year mission in Atlanta, Georgia.

About Me

I come from family of 5, with 1 older sister and 1 younger sister. I was born in Michigan but grow up most of my life in Korea and I came back to United States as High school freshmen. I love playing sports especially Soccer and Football. I enjoying traveling different places and I enjoy having new challenges and learning new ideas. I like to read factionary book an history book. I didn't decided to go to college yet because I was called to serve my full time mission in Atlanta, Georgia. I'm thinking about majoring in Civil Engineer because I love designing and building but I also love to help others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and baptized when I was 8. I probably don't remember when I first baptized, But when I decided to go on my full time mission and went to the temple recently, I know that this church is true and the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know that I will be blessed when I follow his commandments and his living prophet president Monson. The gospel of Jesus Christ had blessed me throughout my years when I struggle to going to seminary, attending the church meetings on Sundays and finding my true testimony. I'm grateful for all things I can have a also grateful for the opportunity to serve my full time mission.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments and gospel of Jesus Christ. I also listen to our general authorities and follow their examples in daily lives. I help out the missionaries during the week with their lesson with the investigators. I love to helping others when they seek for help and guidance and even if they need little help, I always try to help them with their needs. I also study the scriptures and pray daily as I can learn more about gospel of Jesus Christ and follow his example and strengthen my faith.
