Hi I'm Derek

I'm a missionary. I'm a BYU student. I'm an unprofessional athlete. I enjoy long walks on the beach. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was raised in southern California and have four sisters and a younger (bigger) brother. I'm currently serving in the Colombia Bogotá North Mission, and finish may 2016. I'm a BYU student majoring in neuroscience (super nerdy I know) and hope to practice medicine in the future. I love playing sports, mostly water polo, basketball, and volleyball. I love humor and creating things to make others laugh like cartoons, videos, and jokes. I always try to make what I'm doing fun and have a good time wherever I go (even the dentist).

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because this church makes me happy. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is truely Christ´s church. I have received so many blessings in my life by accepting Christ as my saviour and living his teachings. I can feel in my heart, and I kow in my mind, that He lives and that He loves us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly trying to better myself and grow closer to Christ. I try to be like him in the things that I do and I know that even though I will fall down and fall short, He can pick me up again. I am currently serving a two year, voluntary, mission in Colombia. I chose to serve because I know that serving the Lord is the greatest thing I could ever do with two years. God has blessed me so much in my life, and I want to help others receive the same blessings that I have. As a missionary, I teach about Christ and his gospel, or the things he taught, so that others can accept Christ in their lives and apply his teachings.
