Hi I'm Drake

I played a season with one of Mexico's greatest rugby teams, I´m a missionary in Brazil, I LOVE beans and rice, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19, grew up in a small town where all we have to claim is our world famous rodeo! A month after I graduated high school at 17, I moved to a place called Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico as a foreign exchange student. I joined the local rugby team, a university which had previously been 4 time national champions. I trained hard was asked to join the team! I later find out that I would be one of their starters and be allowed to travel all over the country to play for them. I lived there for 1 year, learning the language and culture, traveling, and playing for the Celaya Bulldogs! I returned and after another year of working and saving, I was called on the mission for the LDS church and i´ve been here ever since. I get back April 2014. See you all at the airport!

Why I am a Mormon

The Book of Mormon is evidence of the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are promised that if we pray with sincerity and with faith to God about the Book of Mormon, the truthfulness will be shown to us by the Holy Ghost. I have tested that principle personally; the Book of Mormon is the word of God.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by trying to "Love on Another".

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Drake
The Bible is made up of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The book of Mormon is "Another Testament" - front cover and subtitle of the Book of Mormon. God did and does reveal his Gospel in every dispensation to his Prophets. "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secrets into his servants the prophets" Amos -3:7. He revealed his Gospel to his prophet Adam, and again to Moses. Jesus Christ restored his Gospel when He lived on the Earth. After a falling a way, which is sometimes called the "Great Apostasy", God revealed his Gospel again to the Earth through a prophet, just as he did before; his name is Joseph Smith. God revealed the book of Mormon, a record of Christ's dealings in the Americas, through an Angel to Joseph in 1823. We read, study, and accept the Bible as doctrine just as we do the Book of Mormon.
