Hi I'm Dustin Baker

I grew up in Orange County, California. I am currently serving a mission in the Colorado Denver North Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving a full-time mission in the Colorado Denver North Mission. I plan of playing college basketball in the future. Things i like to do are workout, go to the beach, play sports, and hangout with family and friends. I have 7 brother and sisters who are all my best friends. Im an Uncle to my 2 nieces and nephew's. Im a die hard Laker and Angel fan. I enjoy spending lots of time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon and knew growing up that it made me different then the rest of my friends. I didn't fully understand the gospel until i was in High School. Thats when i noticed the difference in my life compared to the life my friends had. I always felt happy and secure with my family and i noticed people didnt. When i saw my oldest brother come home from his mission i decided then when i was 12, i would serve a mission when i had the oppurtunity. As the fourth member in my family to serve a full time mission i have seen the difference serving the gospel has made in my siblings life's. They were happy, they were loving, and they were better. In preparing for my mission i found true joy in studying the gospel. While serving a mission i have learned that everyone is an investigator even myself. I am just a little farther down the process then the investigators i am teaching. I am learning and repenting everyday and with that comes joy. I know this gospel is true and i will live the rest of my life helping bring others unto thee. I know that Joseph Smith was the prophet of the restoration and brought forth the Book Of Mormon which is his "fruit" to show the world he was a Prophet. When i read the Book Of Mormon i am inspired to be a better person and i feel the peace and joy it brings within my life. In the end, Im a Mormon because this gospel is true and i have seen the blessing in my life when following Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by striving my best to be happy and loving towards everyone. I am serving a 2 year mission to help bring others unto the true church.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Dustin Baker
God loves everyone of his children and has provided a way we can know if the mormon church is true through the power of the Spirit. Also called the Holy Ghost the spirit testifies of truth and we can know if something is true such as by reading the Book of Mormon and taking Moroni's promise in to play. By praying with real intent, a sincere heart, and faith in Jesus Christ we can know if the Book of Mormon is true throught the spirit. Which we testify it is true by feelings of peace, joy, and inspiration. I have applied this promise into my life and i have seen a complete differences in the way i carried myself, i was happier, and more loving. If we can know the Book of Mormon is true then that means Joseph Smith was a Prophet called forth by God, and if Joesph Smith is a prophet that means that God speaks to us today through prophets to help guide us in our life. We then will desire to be a better mormon because we know it is true. Show more Show less
