Hi I'm Derek Walker

I am from West Jordan, Utah. I am currently serving the Lord in the California Ventura Mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from West Jordan, Utah but I'm currently serving a mission in the Great California Mission. I enjoy sharing the gospel with others. I am the oldest of 3 boys, and I have a brother who is serving in the Michigan Detroit Mission. I love playing and watching sports, especially basketball and football. I ran track in High School. I love the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that being a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has brought me blessings in my life that no other church group can bring. This is the true church on the earth. It has the fullness of gospel of Jesus Christ. It has the Priesthood, the authority to act in the name of God. This is essential. I am truly thankful that I was able to grow up in this wonderful church, and I'm thankful to go out and help bring others into it.

How I live my faith

I do my very best everyday to keep the commandments of our Heavenly Father. I continually strive to keep my commitments that I made at baptism. I am also helping others to feel of the same wonderful spirit and peace that I have felt in my life because of the gospel by going out and spreading the word about it. I am striving to help others come closer to Christ.
