Hi I'm Elder Peterson

I grew up in Draper Utah. I am now serving a full time mission in New Jersey, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now, I am serving a full time mission in the Morristown, New Jersey mission. I like to ride motorcycles, drive and fix trucks, and spend time outdoors. When I get home, you will probably find me on the lake wakeboarding, or up in the mountains taking it easy.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager, I decided that I needed to make my own decision about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and not fall back on only what my parents knew. I decided to read The Book of Mormon and ask God, in the name of Christ, if it was true. God answered my prayer, and because I knew the Book of Mormon was true, I was able to know that Joseph Smith, the prophet who translated it from the original ancient record, was a true prophet called by God. Because I know that Joseph Smith was called by God, I know that the original gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth today, and it is only found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Some things a full-time missionary does for the community is serve. We try to find any opportunity to help anyone and everyone. One thing that we do a lot is helping others learn about The Gospel of Jesus Christ and how they can become closer to Him.
