Hi I'm Derrick

I am currently serving in the Oklahoma Oklahoma City Mission!! I love life, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and at this time in my life I have chosen to devote my time and efforts to serving the Lord. I'm serving in the Oklahoma Oklahoma City Mission and am having a blast! This truly is the Best Two Years!! I love my family and friends and I just love getting out and having a good time!! Anything with sports, count me in!!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, and throughout my life I was really just going through the motions; going to church, reading the scriptures, and participating just to make my parents happy. But then there came a time when I really needed to know for myself so that I could make some really important decisions in my life. Through reading the Book of Mormon and praying, I received my own testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel. It has been the best decision of my life and I do not regret it one bit!

How I live my faith

Well, for me I've set apart two whole years of my life to the Lord. I could be going to school, looking for a job, maybe even getting married, but I've chosen to serve instead. The Lord has blessed me so much in my life and what a blessing it is to just give back two years and devote everything I have to him and bringing his children back to him. It truly is a HUGE blessing being able to spread this glad message to others. The gospel has brought me so much peace and happiness in my life so what a blessing it is to help others more fully understand the Atonement of Jesus Christ and apply it in their lives and change for the better. It may seem like a long time serving for two years, but it doesn't even match up in the long run.
