Hi I'm Harold Arvin Pedroso

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, currently serving in the California Redlands Mission.

About Me

I was born and raised in Baguio City, Philippines. I love sports! I play basketball and volleyball, and its always fun when you play with your friends! I love outdoor activities such as hiking,swimming,camping and many more. I love watching movies, listening to music, reading, and always up for trying new things. I play the piano. I do not play classical or jazz, but more on the pop and modern genre of music. I am urrently serving as a full-time missionary in the Redlands California Mission and will be released on July 2017. I'm planning to study in BYU Hawaii after my mission and just be a beach bum all day!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It teaches us how to become like Him and on how we can go back to the presence of our Heavenly Father someday. I love the fact that families can be sealed for time and eternity in the house of the Lord through His priesthood power on the earth. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon because I've read it, pondered it, and asked God to know if it's true and without a doubt, I know that it is, through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know that the Joseph Smith is the prophet of the Restoration and through him, the true gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the small and simple things that strengthen my testimony, such as scripture study and prayer. I love learning about the Savior Jesus Christ and his Atoning sacrifice for us. The scriptures always remind me of who I am and why am I here. I pray to Heavenly Father to ask for guidance and direction, and I know that He lives and He loves us so much! As a missionary and a representative of Jesus Christ I always try to act like Him around the people I serve. I love sharing the gospel to those who are seeking for a purpose in this life and are looking for the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
