Hi I'm Peter

I'm from New Zealand. I love music & a good cup of jo .

About Me

Kia ora my name is Peter Cowan. I come from a place called Hastings, which is located in the green pastures of New Zealand, home of a tonn load of sheep and me of course :) . 2013 I graduated from Hastings boys' high school. I'm planning on furthering my studies after my mission. I plan on becoming a Physiotherapist . I find happiness through playing music and reading my scriptures. I have a love for performing arts such as choir and theater. Family and Friends mean everything to me and I'd do anthying for them. I am the eldest of 5, I'm an Identical twin ( which means i practically have a clone.. isnt that cool ? ). I'm proud to be a Maori boy! never to shy to whip out a haka anytime of the day I'm a Mormon. I live it and love it. I was originally called to serve and labor in the Japan Nagoya mission to preach the gospel in the Japanese language but now I'm completing the rest of my assignment in the Australia Sydney South Mission until August 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

I’m a Mormon because it brings happiness into my life and those around me I have found that if I put the Lord first in my life, everything else falls into place. I feel that being Mormon and having strong faith in God helps me get through any obstacles and trials that life throws at me and it also helps me appreciate things like my family and friends.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. I assist the missionaries with teaching lessons if they need it and attend church every Sunday. I try my hardest to live the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ everyday at home, workplace and community by being a good example and helping those in need weather it be by a few words of encouragement, a compliment or a helping hand.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries share a unique and simple message about how much God loves all his children. This message is centered on Jesus Christ. The importance of Families ties in with this wonderful message. This message is for all people. Show more Show less
