Hi I'm Derek

I'm an eagle scout, I'm a swimmer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play video games and spent time with my friends. I love to go camping but mostly backpacking. I have always loved water and enjoy swimming very much. I am going to college for architecture but am taking a break to go on a mission. I'm also a bit of a goof ball. (see picture)

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Well, I was born into a family that was members but I never tried to find out if it was the truth but I always knew that being at church and helping people made me feel good. When I was 17 I brought a friend to church with me. They ended up taking lessons from the missionaries. While in the lessons I felt the spirit and I just knew it was the truth. Since then my testimony has only grown as I lived the gospel.

How I live my faith

I let my friends know my standards and I live by them, I serve anyone in need when I can, and I am serving a mission in the Micronesia-Guam mission from November 2012 to November 2014.
