Hi I'm David

I'm a brother, student, choir member, and sports lover. I'm currently a missionary in Milan, Italy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a huge fan of the Arizona Diamondbacks. I love watching all sports and I enjoy playing basketball. My brother and I also love bowling and playing ping-pong together. I'm a board-game-player and I love reading. I was a member of the 2012 Arizona All-State Choir and have always enjoyed singing and the spirit that good music brings. I'm currently a missionary in the Italy Milan Mission and will be a university student in Utah when I return following my two years of service for the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of both the practical and spiritual qualities that accompany this gospel. On a practical level, I know that following the standards of this church increases the health and happiness in my life. This does not mean that I will always be happy or healthy as a result of my membership, but the spirit will bring me greater peace and strength during these times. Spiritually, I have a testimony of the truth of the Book of Mormon. I know that Joseph Smith translated its message from plates revealed to him by an angel of God, and that he truly spoke to God and His son Jesus Christ in what we now call the Sacred Grove. I know that Christ atoned for the sins of the world, including my own, and that my sins can be forgiven as I put my faith in Him and strive to follow his teachings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as a missionary in the Italy Milan Mission. I started my missionary Service October 2012, and I will return home October 2014. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share this gospel and it's blessings with the people of Italy! I strive to smile at all times so that others can see the happiness that the gospel has brought me. I avoid drugs, alcohol, and R-rated movies because I personally know that they detract from the spirit and can bring physical harm to those who participate in these activities. Additionally, I am actively involved in indexing, an activity that allows current generations to connect with past relatives and ancestors. Doing this strengthens my faith and positive outlook on life.
