Hi I'm Dallin

I'm a National Merit Scholar. I'm living in Taiwan. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm really into music--not modern music, but I love classical music, composition, and arranging. My favorite works are ones I've performed in. I was a member of the East Valley Mormon Choral Organization before I decided to serve a mission. I also was studying mechanical engineering at the university near my house, but also have an interest in linguistics, although it is a very elementary interest, and I haven't done much with it. I'm currently planning on returning to Arizona State to study Computer Information Systems. I love being a nerd, and sharing what I learn, even if sometimes people don't really care.

Why I am a Mormon

From both a logical and a spiritual point of view, this religion just seems to make sense. I was thinking about what religion could possibly be right in the world, and I realized a few things. 1) If Jesus exists, then Christianity is correct. The Bible, according to historians is true. 2) If Christianity is correct, then it's either Catholicism or Mormonism that's correct. There's no middle option (it's eith authority from ancient times, or the restoration of authority in these days.) 3) God is never going to change. This church is the only church on earth that claims full authority from God, in addition to a living prophet on Earth. Other than that, there's the simple truth of testimony. If any man prays to know the truth, then he'll know what's really up with eternal truth, and receive a testimony for himself. So that's what I did. And found out that what logic seemed to say to me is true, on a spiritual level as well as a logical level.

How I live my faith

Right now, I'm serving as a full time missionary in Taiwan, sharing the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. But any time you sacrifice for the Lord, the blessings he'll give you will be more than you can even imagine. So that's what I've discovered. Even though I'm sacrificing these two years, I've learned a lot about myself and grown so much as a result of this service. As well as learning about as fluent of Chinese as any white person can that lived in Taiwan for less than 10 years. I also volunteered by singing in a community Mormon Choir. I served in the church, as ward organist and a Sunday School teacher. And mostly just used it as an opportunity to grow.
