Hi I'm Preston

Talofa! I am a missionary serving in the New York Rochester Mission. I'm a Mormon. I know it I live it. I love it.

About Me

I am a missionary and I have been called to serve in the New York Rochester Mission. I will report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on November 4th, 2015. I love basketball, frisbee, and volleyball, and pretty much anything that has to do with sports. A normal day in the life of Preston Peters consists of Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre quotes and a whole lot of cheesy pick up lines. I was born in Kirkland, Washington but grew up on Ozark, Missouri. I love the Pacific Northwest. Living in Missouri, I have come to love country music. So now, you can say that you know a Samoan who likes country. R&B and island music are also my jams! I will be attending Brigham Young University when I complete my mission. Go Cougs!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know the truth. I have come to know the truth through the gospel and the Spirit. I have seen too many blessings and have received too many witnesses of the truth to leave this gospel. I will always stay true to my beliefs because of this gospel. I was born and raised in the church. I love the Gospel! I lived it the best I could growing up and gained a love and a need for it in my life. Growing up in the church, I leaned on my parents' testimonies. I decided that I needed to know for myself the things that I knew my parents knew. So I dove in to the scriptures and prayed with all my heart. Because I did so and continue to do so, the Lord blessed me with the knowledge and testimony of the Gospel. It's true!

How I live my faith

I am a missionary so I also live my faith by sharing it with others. I want others to have the same kind of happiness that this gospel has brought to me. There are lots of other ways that I live my faith. I try to emulate my Savior in everything I do so that others can see who and what I believe in. As we strive to be more like Christ, we will be a light to the rest of the world!
