Hi I'm Douglas

I have given up college, video games, a girlfriend, and my family to serve the Lord. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a mission for the Lord Jesus Christ! I love the people of Germany and love to teach about the Gospel. Though we may not seem it, the missionaries (and I) are still just young men. I love to make music! My favorite is drumming, but I also make music on the piano and guitar. I love the musical theater and singing as well. All sports are great to play but my favorites are Lacrosse and Wrestling. Most the time I just like to dance and have a great time! I have a amazing mother and father who are always helpful and supportive of me. I have 4 sisters and one brother that is my best friend. We talk about the most philosophical and theoretical topics, from politics to Star Wars.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of the Church. My family is all very strong in the Church.I don't remember exactly when I knew this Church was true but as I've gotten older my testimony has gotten strong. As a high school student life was not easy. My seminary class consisted of only 12 people and for most of my life I was the only boy in my primary class, so I have not had many LDS friends. I'm glad that the Holy Ghost helped me avoid the temptations and trials of high school. I have felt a joy and comfort from the Spirit that I know comes from nowhere else. I try to share my standards and the Gospel daily. I'm glad I have great upstanding priesthood holders to look up to including, my dad, grandfather, and uncles. My favorite song is "I Know that my Redeemer Lives" because I do know his love for me and I love him. He Lives.

How I live my faith

I have been called to teach the Gospel to the people in Germany! I have made many sacrifices to be able to do this. Though it may seem like the prime of my life I chose to dedicate myself to the Lord Jesus Christ. Daily, I talk to others about His love and plan for them. I teach about the Book of Mormon and serve those in need. I seek to exemplify the example of Jesus Christ in everything I do say and think. I recognize though I am imperfect but through my faith I can become strong.
