Hi I'm Dan

I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I serve a mission in the Philippines Davao Mission.

About Me

My wife and I have been married for 27 years and have raised four children. During their younger years, my boys were involved with Boy Scouts of America. So, I decided to get involve with them. I served for many years in the scouting program and was able to have many great adventures with my sons in the high sierras. We backpacked, we canoed, fished, and enjoyed many outdoor activities. All the time, my sons were learning the character traits necessary for them to become Eagle Scouts. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints fully supports the Boy Scouts and this really helped me and my wife in raising our sons.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always known that there is a God. The earth itself is a testament that He lives and loves us. I have felt his presence in my life and in my search for the truth, I have come to know that He truly has a plan for each of us and I know that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. And for this reason, I see the importance of a living prophet to be God's mouthpiece upon the earth. I also know that He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to be a perfect example and to atone for our sins and to die on the cross for all of us. I also know that he was resurrected. During his earthly ministry, he surely established his gospel and I know that that same gospel has been restored in its fullness in this latter days. And this I know through the Holy Spirit and that is why I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in a young single adult branch (congregation) and I am truly impressed with their desire to do what is right. I would invite anyone who is single from the age of 18-30 to join with us and feel the Spirit and strength of these fine young men and women. In this hard times in which we live, it is good to see and be part of positive things. This truly is a blessing in my life and helps me to remember the important things of life.
