Hi I'm Paul Philip Frenzel Jr.

Born and raised in Utah. Love volunteering and working with people. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I like to build computers and work on them. I was attending Weber State University for my first year as a freshman in the Nursing program but it is just generals for now. Right now, I am focusing on my mission that I will be serving in Nicaragua. I also tutored junior high and high school students in all general subjects such as Mathematics, English, History, and Science.

Why I am a Mormon

To be honest, I really questioned the church and it's beliefs when I was young because I felt that Heavenly Father had abandoned me. I went through many traumatic experiences in which I had to find ways to cope with them. I prayed and prayed everyday and felt like I had no answers. Many times, I asked and questioned if he was truly there. Still feeling a sense of abandonment, I rebelled. I did not want to be part of the LDS church anymore and that becoming inactive was my only choice in my later years. However, a very strong and warm feeling came over me and I started questioning myself if I had truly searched for the answers. I realized that I had neither searched nor made little effort to search for the answers. So then I started to read the Book of Mormon and began praying again. While I read the Book of Mormon I began to realize how much potential it had, and that the information provided within it will make me happy. I had finally got my answer, and that answer was to serve on an LDS Mission.

How I live my faith

I was called to serve as a ward missionary. I visited peoples' houses and talked to them about their activity within the LDS church. Many were inactive and it was mine and my companion's responsibility to help them with anything that they needed as well as to encourage to attend the church. Many times the visits were just to check up on them to make sure their family was provided with everything that they needed and to open up to us about personal problems they or their family is facing. I loved visiting every single one of my home teaching families as well, just to share a lesson and talking to them really made me feel like they were my own family members.
