Hi I'm Patrick Veridiano

I am a Filipino, serving a full-time mission in the California Arcadia Mission. Lovin' every second of it! And yes, I'm a mormon!

About Me

Hello! I'm a little bit of everything, all rolled into one human being. Food makes me happy. Right now I am here in Southern California, learning the ways of the Lord and striving to be the missionary that He wants me to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, got baptized at the age of 8 and now that I'm already in my 20's, I just couldn't imagine myself not being a member of His church. I have strong testimony of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ because this has blessed me and my family in so many ways. I've seen miracles happen because of this message of hope and love. Every trial that me and my family faces, we know that if we obey faithfully and follow His teachings and commandments, we will get through it. And it feels good to know that Heavenly Father knows each one of us loves all of us. How beautiful and wonderful that feeling is!

How I live my faith

Living my faith requires actions. I strive to live the Gospel to the best of my ability. Right now I am given the opportunity to serve as a full-time missionary for the church, sharing the Good News to my dear brothers and sisters.
