Hi I'm David Huckvale

I was born and raised in the Northwest. I love sports, politics, airsoft, and gaming. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Portland, Oregon. When I was 5 years old my family moved to Camas, Washington where we've lived since. In 2011 I graduated from Camas High School, home of the Papermakers. At high school I ran the Young Republicans Club and was very active in local politics. I follow high school and college sports very closely. My favorite college teams are BYU and the University of Washington. My two favorite hobbies include playing military-simulation airsoft and gaming. I also enjoy filming and creating Machinima on video games such as Halo. I'm currently serving a full-time 2 year mission in Jacksonville, Florida until January 2014. Afterwards I plan on attending Brigham Young University in Provo, UT.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because this is Christ's true church once again established here on the Earth. We have a living Prophet today, a prophet just like Moses, Noah, Abraham, or any of Jesus' Apostles who lead and guide His church. If it wasn't for the Book of Mormon I don't think i'd be religious at all. There's so many churches on the Earth today. Many are led by the wants of man. Such as money, power, politics, and people's own selfish needs and desires. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has no paid ministry. Everyone volunteers to do things, just like Jesus Himself did. This church is ran exactly how Jesus Christ's church should run. It is through the Book of Mormon that we can know that what I say is true. After we read and ponder the words in the Book of Mormon, we ask God, the Eternal Father if the book is true. We're promised if we do this, asking in Faith, we will receive an answer from the Holy Ghost, who reveals the truthfulness of all things. I put that promise to the test. The answer I received was more real than the words you are reading. Once you know the Book of Mormon is true, then we really have a Prophet, called by God, on the Earth right now! I follow what the Prophet says and my life is blessed. It is from this Gospel that you can find true happiness. I invite everyone everywhere to read, ponder, and pray about the book of mormon, so you too, can find out the meaning of life and be, for maybe the first time in your life, truly happy. I know that I can be with my family together forever someday.

How I live my faith

I was called by a Prophet of God, Thomas S. Monson, to serve as a representative of Jesus Christ and share the Gospel to the people in the Florida Jacksonville Mission and Georgia Macon Mission. I simply invite people to pray about the things I say and ask God if they're true. This is something I'll do for 2 years. Serving people everywhere of every faith. If I see someone on the side of the road with a flat tire, no matter what I will pull over and help them. If I see a yard that needs some work I'll offer my service to whomever needs it. We are taught, 'when you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service of your God.'
