Hi I'm Dan

About Me

Hi, I am currently a college student studying Political Science. Following graduation, I plan to attend law school and pursue a legal career. I am interested in property law and humanitarian efforts. I would love to pursue a career combining both paths, and work with people from around the world. I served a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Lima, Peru. I loved every day that I spent among the people, getting to know and appreciate them. I enjoy outdoor activities like rock climbing, slack lining, soccer and anything that will get me outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was members of the church. I grew up in the church learning and feeling more and more the truth that God once again called prophets to guide us. When I was 19 years old I served a mission for the church in Lima Peru. While serving I had the chance to teach others of Christ and see them come unto Him, while also cominng closer to Christ myself. Following Jesus Christ through a living prophet has been the biggest help to living my life. I have been able to come to know in a personal way who Jesus Christ is and what He has done for me personally. I have felt and wittnessed the joy the gospel brings. I have prayed and know that God and Jesus Christ live and love us. They love me and you personally and that makes me want to follow them and what they teach me.

How I live my faith

The experiences and friends that I meet at church and the different activities make living my faith much more meaningful. My local church group, which is called a "ward" becomes a family to me as I am away from home while at college. In my ward I am responsible for the missionary efforts. I work with the full time missionaries and also other members of the church to teach and help other to learn and come unto Christ.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes! Mormons believe in and worship Jesus Christ. We know Him as the Savior of the world. He was born of Mary and came into this world to die for each of us and our sins so that we can repent and one day return to live with our Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ is the one we worship and fallow through a living prophet on earth today. Show more Show less
