Hi I'm Donald

I'm regular guy. I like to smile. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a student at a university. I come from a normal family and we enjoy spending time with one another. I love to play sports and to play the piano, although im really no good at either. If i have tried to do anything with my life, it would be that i have tried to be a good friend. I really like to see other people smile and enjoy themselves. I know it doesn't sound like much but I think it is really important to be a good friend.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that I came to this world for a reason, and that reason is beautifully defined in plainess by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have made changes in my life, trying to align myself with those principles that He taught. I have seen others like me make similar changes. I believe that I can live a wholesome and healthy lifestyle if I live like a Mormon should. My life is beautiful. I am a Mormon because I believe in spiritual things. I believe in eternal things. The church teaches me that there is life after death, and that families are eternal. I have never heard of any other teaching that has had more meaning. My family is happy for this reason. I served a two-year mission for this purpose. And I was blessed to behold miracles and I got to help people make those important changes that I have made. And now they are as happy as I!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the little things required of me. I love to participate in church activities and functions. I also find it important to complete with family duties. I live my faith by following the Lord's counsels. In my family we do this together. As a community we do this. I try to help by encouraging participation in the programs of the church. I strive to follow the commandments found in the scriptures and those that we have received from living prophets. I love to obey, because God gives me blessings.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

I served in Spain as a missionary for two years. I got to teach people of many nations and of many cultures and of many colors. I got to see many of those individuals enter the church. The church is a beautiful array of colors. All are alike unto God. They are my brothers and sisters. Any who desire to enter the church can join and be happy! I count myself blessed to have been witness to such miracles. Diversity is beautiful. Show more Show less
