Hi I'm Mike Pesantez

I was born and raised in Connecticut. I am a business enthusiast. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I'm Mormon.

About Me

My name is Mike Pesantez and I am a current Brigham Young University student. I enjoy playing football and basketball. Besides sports, I enjoy helping others too. I aspire to travel the world. The church has blessed my life in so many ways.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents' decision to convert to the church in the late 90's is why I am Mormon. As a result of my parents' conversion, my life has been blessed in remarkable ways. The power of missionary work is also why I am Mormon. I am Mormon because of the joy the church brings to my life. I am Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ and his atonement. Because of the atonement, I can live with my family forever.

How I live my faith

Service and the gospel are two very closely-related ideals. Throughout my life, I have been privileged to serve in many church callings. All of which has allowed me to devote time to helping the youth of my area. It has been astonishing to see the lives of the youth and mine be blessed because of church callings. Like all things, they require time and patience. It is important to remain faithful and optimistic when serving the Lord.
