About Me

I am a 52 year old Father of 3. My wife and I live in Torrance, California. I work as a Component Engineer. My church calling is presently Ward Mission Leader. I have served in avariety of church callings, including Elders Quorum President, Deacons Quorum Adviser, financial clerk, Sunday School teacher, Employment Specialist, etc. I served a mission in the french speaking Switzerland Geneva mission between 1977 and 1979.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Mormon church today because I gained a testimony of the gospel as a youth. Wonderful people in my youth reached out to me and made me a part of their ward family. I have continued to learn and grow in my faith over the years through service to others and accepting church callings. My life is richer today because of the fellowship and testimonies others have shared with me.

How I live my faith

I live the gospel by serving in the church, attending meetings, going to the temple, and teaching the gospel principles class.
