Hi I'm Elder Daniels

I am a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in the Philippines, Cauayan Mission.

About Me

I am the oldest of 7 children; 5 boys and 2 girls. I was born in Idaho, and then moved with my family to Pennsylvania after my freshman year of high school. I have been LDS my whole life, and so has my family. I love sports, music, reading, my friends, pretty much anything outdoors, video games, and the Gospel. I played soccer and football in high school, and threw javelin for the track team. I also participated in all my school choral programs and musicals as well. I am an aspiring orthodontist. After high school I attended a semester at Brigham Young University before coming on my mission to the Philippines. After I return from my mission, I plan on finishing my schooling and being married in one of God's holy temples. I am stoked to become a father and be sealed to my family for time and all eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the one True Church of Jesus Christ. I know for myself -and not because of what anyone has told me or forced me to believe- that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that Joseph Smith Jr. is a prophet called of God to establish His church once again on the earth, and that we have a LIVING prophet on the earth today. His name is Thomas S. Monson. I know that the Priesthood power of God, the same power with which the earth was created, Moses parted the Red Sea, and Christ healed the sick, has been returned to the true church here in the last days. I know that this one true church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that it is ONLY through this Priesthood power that we can receive all the binding ordinances we need to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father and become like Him, as is our right as His spirit children. I have a testimony of prayer, that through this communication with our Father, we can be guided, receive blessings and comfort, and remain on the correct path in our lives through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know for myself that the temple is the house of the Lord, and that nowhere on earth is more sacred or holy, and nowhere else can we be closer to our Father in Heaven. I know that God loves us, and that He wants what is best for each of us. I know that if we just do our best to keep His commandments, repent, and have faith in Him that He will take care of us. I love Him and His gospel with all my heart. I challenge anybody who reads this to inquire about the Church and this Gospel, because I know that by living these principles we are blessed and HAPPY in our lives.

How I live my faith

I am now serving as a full-time missionary for the Church in the Philippines, Cauayan Mission. I live my faith every day by reading my scriptures, saying my prayers, doing my best to keep God's commandments, and going out to spread His gospel every day in a shirt and tie, and wearing a black badge that carries the name of Jesus Christ. It is my job to share this glad message with anyone who will listen.
