My name is Elder Aaron Peterson and I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
I was born and raised in New Hampshire. I am the youngest of 8 Children from a very close knit family.
During high school I was very active on a US First Robotics team where I learned to love engineering. I went on splits with the missionaries and participated in temple baptisms whenever I could. I graduated from High School in June of 2014 and got my mission call shortly thereafter. I have had the opportunity to travel to Europe twice. My oldest sister took my sister and I to visit early in 2013 and then for her wedding June of 2014 in Koksijde, Belgium. After the wedding, two of my sisters and a cousin traveled to France, Italy, and the UK.
I spent the rest of the summer working full-time and saving for my mission.
I am very excited to have a chance to focus wholeheartedly on serving the Lord while bringing the message of the restored gospel and blessing the lives of the people of France.
After my mission I plan on attending BYU and pursuing a degree in Engineering.
