Hi I'm Dallin

I'm 20 years old. I love football, basketball, and just staying active. I play the Violin. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving a full time mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West mission. I played football (Runningback and Linbacker) through high school and I love to play basketball too. I have two sisters and three brothers. Four of my siblings are adopted, two from the Marshall Islands and two from China. I am planning on going to college and hope to go into Health Care as a profession.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints but didnt realize how important that was until probably my senior year of high school. It was then that the possability of going on a two year mission really hit me and I really needed to find out if this church was Christ's true church on the earth today. So I started reading my scriptures more and praying a lot. I talked to a lot of my friends that I played football and basketball with about what thier beleifs were and why they beleived the way they did. After studying and asking questions I came to realize how much of God's love I already felt in my life, how being with my family forever is something I really want, how having a prophet and apostles on the earth today just makes sense. I learned that we can receive answers for ourselves directly from God. He really does love us and will answer our questions if we ask in faith.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a full time missionary in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. This means I am spending all my time devoted to teaching about Jesus Christ. I love what I do and I hope that by doing this I can bring the same joy and happiness into other's lives as I have had in my own.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Dallin
When we attened church the men usually go in a white shirt and tie with some slacks. and the women usually go in a dress. Just to show respect when we worship our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. As far as holidays go... I'll take any excuse to get together with a bunch of friends and family. I love Christmas and Thanksgiving a lot! Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Dallin
No... We believe Joseph Smith was called to be the prophet to restore Christ's church on the earth toady. We do not worship him at all but we are definitely grateful for what he did and the sacrifice he went through to restore Christ's church. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Dallin
Yes! why not now if there were others throughout history? Show more Show less
