Hi I'm Parker Wilde

I'm a sports enthusiast, a world traveler, a missionary in the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up all throughout the world. I was born in Florida, moved to Virginia then to Paris, France then to Shanghai, China and now reside in the Bay Area in California. Through traveling and living in different parts of the world, I have learned to become open-minded to other cultures, lifestyles, and peoples. I have made friends from all different types of backgrounds and have learned to respect and understand the way they live. I enjoy sports and love the way it brings people together. I am a competitor but enjoy the sportsmanship and comradery that it brings. I am a huge Golden State Warriors fan. I have three brothers, one older & two younger. I enjoy playing sports (basketball in particular), listening to different types music, traveling, and being with family and friends. I am currently a missionary in the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Mission speaking the English language.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that the teachings of this gospel help bring us closer to God and provide the path back to his presence. I know that by following the commandments, a happier life will be achieved. I know that the principles of the church help to keep me on a straight and narrow course to having a moral and clean life which will help me and others as I continue along this journey of life. I have seen the gospel help and bless others which is a significant reason behind my choice to serve a mission. I am a friend, a missionary and a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Most of my friends are not members of my faith; however, I do not judge them and I respect their views on life. I strive to be an example of my faith through my actions and deeds. I express the importance of the church in my life and share my beliefs when the subject is brought up. Through kindness and respect, my actions do not go unnoticed. I enjoy serving the lord as a full time missionary for the church. I know it is important to be an example at all times and that we must be different from the world in order to make a difference in the world.
