Hi I'm Derek

I am a amateur film maker, a cave explorer, a Missionary in the California Roseville Mission, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love making YouTube videos because it gives me something to work on and share with people. I like helping people feel happy, that is why I am serving on a 2 year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am serving in the California Roseville Mission. I also love going spelunking, hiking, and being myself. I have great friends and family to learn from. My mom is always there for me and my dad is a great example I have learned from. I wasn't always active in the church but that was before I knew God.

Why I am a Mormon

One night as I was struggling with some problems, I went to the one place I had not tried for a very long time and it was my only way out. I knelt down in prayer to my Father in Heaven. I asked "Heavenly Father, if you are really there, please help me overcome my temptations and struggles! Help me escape!". When I finished, I got up and the urge to do evil was no more in me. He helped me over come my problems and pretty soon after that I started feeling the Holy Ghost bear witness of the truthfullness of the Gospel of Christ. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love being a full time Missionary because I get to share the Gospel to a lot of different people, no matter who they are. I love the people of Northern California, where I am serving! I have seen blessings from living the Gospel, especially through daily scripture study and prayer. If I didn't share the Gospel with other people, they wouldn't know of the happiness that I have come to know with all my heart.
