Hi I'm Elder Preston Akagi

I have grown up in the Church my entire life. I have experienced happiness and joy through my Savior, Jesus Christ.

About Me

I attended college in the fall of 2012 and spring of 2013. I love to read and play basketball and Ultimate frisbee. I love to learn, and my favorite thing to learn about is chemistry. I love to learn how and why the world works.

Why I am a Mormon

I have prayed to know if God is real. He has answered my prayers, and I know that God is my Heavenly Father. God has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to show the way we should live and in order to save mankind from their sins. I know Christ payed the price for my mistakes and sins. I know He can make me clean. Christ was killed and rose on the third day. I know and take great joy that death is not the end of life. I will see my family and friends I love after I die.

How I live my faith

I attend all of my meetings at church. I try to help others in whatever way I can. A kind smile and greeting is a simple but powerful way to brighten someone's day.
