Hi I'm Derek Proctor

I grew up in Heber City, Ut. I love being in the outdoors hunting and Snowmobiling! Im a Mormon.

About Me

Well i am "DPRO" that is the nickname that i am usually called. I graduated from Wasatch High School in 2011. My passion in life is doing things with others in the outdoors. I ride snowmobiles, dirt bikes, four wheelers, I love shooting my bow and guns. I have worked in a few different places and most recently worked for a construction company. I love to work on things and fix them. I love buying and selling stuff. I am currently serving a FULL TIME MISSION in South Carolina!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i have seen the happiness that it has brought to others around me in my life. I grew up in the church and have watched many things happen in my family because of the Gospel. I have personally seen lives changed just from living the gospel and doing the things that the lord expects of us. I know that this is the Lord's only true Church established for us today and i know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and restored the priesthood authority to the earth. Without that authority we wouldnt be able to have all of this happiness. Im grateful that i have the Book of Mormon to read and study from to bring me answers to help people through hard times or bring them more joy. I know that by strieving to be our best we will once again return to live with our Heavenly Father, none of us are perfect and he knows our challenges. Our Savior does live and provides miracles for us everyday. I know that he loves each and everyone of his children equally. Answers dont come easy but as we continue to press forward and seek to do the Fathers will we will get our answers line upon line.

How I live my faith

Currently i am living my faith by serving a full time mission! I love being a missionary and helping people learn more about this gospel. I try to be an example to those around me. I go out everyday trying to find people and bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ into their lives. I continue to build my testimony of the gospel through prayer and scripture study. It doesnt always come as soon as we want it to but through faith and diligience we see the blessings. Its not always easy but it is always worth it. I know that serving others has strengthened me as i see those around me grow in the gospel. There is no other place on the earth i would rather be than on a mission!
