Hi I'm Peter

I grew up in Crystal Lake, IL. I played travel soccer. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up being one of the few members that went to my high school. It was hard being one of the only Mormons because everyone seemed to pay extra close attention to me and what I did. I played soccer and I love to watch it. When I was younger I wanted to become a professional soccer player, but life got to me and I realized that it was not a possibility for me. My current passion is robotics and I want to work on exo-suits. I love art and I love to draw. I was attending college before going out on my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found joy in living the gospel and my life has been blessed by living the gospel. I grew up in the church but, I never truly knew the joy of being a member was until my senior year of high school. I gained my own testimony that year without having to rely on others. I love my family and I love knowing that families are eternal. I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God and through Christ's atonement we will be able to return to live with God, as long as we strive to live the teachings of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I made sure out at college to do my hometeaching out at college. I tried as best as I can to constantly be worthy to partake of the sacrament every Sunday. I try to help those in need as best as I can. In my ward in college, I was one of the teachers called to teach the men. I am always willing to teach anyone who wants to know about the LDS church.
