Hi I'm Derek

I'm from California. I love computers. I'm studying Electrical Engineering. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently attending college and studying electrical engineering. I enjoy using computers and learning how to program on them. I love listening to music; it's such a beautiful art and I'm grateful for it. I like to read and browse the internet. I absolutely love making memes and finding memes online which I then send to friends to create a good laugh :) I lived in Paraguay for 2 years while serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I enjoyed my time there, met many people, and to this day still think about my time there and how much I have grown to love the country, the culture, and the people. Because of my mission I now can speak Spanish and I love being able to use it as often as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Lord has restored his gospel to the earth today into this church through the prophet Joseph Smith. I feel so blessed to be a part of His church. I am so grateful to the Lord for all that He has given me and blessed me with. As I follow the teachings of the Lord I grow spiritually and my testimony grows stronger. I feel so blessed to call myself a Mormon and I hope to be able to share the happiness I receive with all who are around me.

How I live my faith

I am in a ward at my college with other students and I am serving as a secretary for the men in the ward. I help out with planning and keeping track of attendance every week. I like to attend the activities the church holds and getting to know other people in my community.
