Hi I'm Patrick

I grew up in Utah. I am serving a Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the Gospel and know of the joy it brings to those who embrace it. I love to read and write, I like to paintball, building legos has always been a hobby of mine. I'm learning German and Spanish but I'm heading to Indonesia to serve my LDS Mission and learn Indonesian.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member, but fell away from the Church before the time when I was able to be baptized. After a few years I started going again, but I wasn't committed and thought of it as a chore. After more years, things were very difficult, I didn't communicate with my family very well and school wasn't a big deal to me. I lost interest in things I used to enjoy, and felt alone and like I had nothing. But with the help of Heavenly Father, I was able to find my way back to the Church with the help of others as they were being instruments in Heavenly Father's hands. It took a lot of steps to get where I am now, but they were all small, and each one helped me become stronger in faith and obedience. I felt the Savior's healing power when I actually started going to Church because I wanted to be there, and knew that I can become better in this Church even though I still make mistakes, but Christ sees our progression and I know that is true.

How I live my faith

My ward is great. I love the adults who teach and prepare us through their lessons, planned activities and example. The youth in my ward have always been extremely friendly since the day I came into the ward and continue to this day. We help out in service projects to others by helping with home repairs or support to those in need. I home teach a few families with a companion who is a husband and father. We visit our families, seeing how things are and how we can help, provide Gospel lessons and bear our testimonies.
