Hi I'm Patrick

I'm currently serving my full time mission in Kennewick, WA. I reported to the MTC in early September and I love serving the lord!

About Me

I am currently serving my mission in Kennewick, Washington. I reported in early September to the Provo MTC and I am extremely excited to now be in the mission field.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the church, I had many struggles with its teachings as a youth. as I grew older, there were many occasions that I tried branching out to attain my own knowledge through my own experiences. Every time I tried to pull away from what I knew what was true doctrine, I discovered that which i was running from, was in fact what was best for me and what was truly right. I have a very strong testimony of this church and the prophets which have led it throughout history. I have a strong testimony and love for our brother and savior Jesus Christ. I want to do all that I can to spread the doctrine and gospel of Christ to all those that are willing to listen and accept him into their lives.

How I live my faith

I live in accordance to the teachings of the gospel. I am currently serving as a full time missionary and do all that I can to serve the Lord.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

this is the official church answer "there is a strong tradition of missionary service in the church. the Savior taught, “go ye therefore, and teach all nations” (matthew 28:19). church members consider it a privilege to show their love for other people and the Lord by sharing the gospel. missionaries generally begin serving when they are from 18 to 19 years old. many retired seniors, men, women, and married couples also serve missions. missionaries serve from 18 months to 2 years. missions are voluntary, and missionaries are not paid for their service. missionaries come from around the world, and they serve wherever the church calls them. while serving full-time, missionaries are official representatives of the church." i could not do anything to answer the question more perfectly, but i can indeed share why i will be serving a mission. i want others to have the same experiences and spiritual connections that i ave had. the church is by far the biggest blessing in my life and i love being able to share that with other. i am devoting two years of my life to give my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ that chance to have the same connection to God that i have found in myself through the lds church.
