Hi I'm Dennis Black

I grew up in California. I'm a missionairy who loves the Lord!

About Me

Hi my name is Dennis Black! I am middle child out of five kids. I love listening to music and enjoy it alot. I like to play pretty much all sports. My favorite sports are cross-country, soccer, basketball and volleyball. I appreciate hanging out with friends and going to activities. I am currently serving a mission in Maryland and have the opportunity to increase the faith of others in Chirst. It has been nice so far because lots of lessons have been taught from it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of the church because of gaining a testimony of the divinity of the Christ's atonement. I prayed humbly and sought out for the truth of the the gospel. I have come to know of God's infinite love for me, Jesus Christ being my Savior and of Joseph Smith being a chosen prophet by them. I love the book of mormon and the plainess and simplicity of it in testifying furthermore of Jesus Christ. I know that ancient prophets were inspired to record the history for the establishment of the book of mormon. I work hard to follow the example Chirst set and to improve myself. I am much happier now because of reading the scriptures constantly and praying diligently.

How I live my faith

I participate in the community by helping out with service. I like serving those around me and strengthening them. I have grown to love those that I work to build and uplift. I feel satisfied as I help God with his work and realize that as I help others I am really serving him. I am thrilled when I can see someone else's life blessed. I am eager to do my very best to obey Chirst's teachings. I could feel of the compassion he had for mankind and that inspires me to follow his ways.
