Hi I'm Declan O'Keeffe

I grew up in England. I am currently serving a mission in the England London South Mission.

About Me

My hobbies are painting and drumming and i love music. At College I studied Art & Design and Music Performance. I have done all sorts of paintings such as animals and landscapes, i mostly like painting waterfront views especially the seaside. I have painted all kinds of animals like eagles, tigers, elephants and dolphins. I like drumming to rock music, specifically country rock but i will play almost any kind of music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a born and raised latter-day saint. I was born into a family that are all members of the church and was taught all about my saviour and what he did for me. i was taught about the restoration of the gospel and the prophet Joseph Smith. I remember one church meeting when i was about 14 and we were learning about Joseph Smith and the restoraton and at the end of the meeting i just felt the spirit of the lord testify so strongly to me that it was all completly true and iv never been able to doubt it or deny it since. This is why i am serving a mission now because i know of a surety that the church is true and that God is my Heavenly Father, that Jesus truely did atone for my sins which is part of a plan of salvation and happiness for all of us. I love the gospel with all my heart and i know that it is the true church of Jesus christ on this earth at this time.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary, going round the London South area spreading the good word of the gospel and serving as many people as i can. Previously to doing this i would often go out to visit members in the stoke area where i lived and also those who didnt come out very often just to pay a freindly visit and see how they were doing.
