Hi I'm Samuel Osorio Perkins

I grew up in Virginia. I'm a member of an A Capella group. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and will be serving in Joao Pessoa, Brazil. I was a Freshman at Southern Virginia University. I'm a dedicated Martial Artist. I sing with and am the professional DJ for a premier A Capella group, The Fading Point. I also LOVE Japanese/Peruvian infused cuisine.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with two LDS parents. Both were very active in the church and that caused my brothers and I to learn to live and love this gospel. I had to a lot of soul searching on my own and when I came to find out for myself that this church was the right one I loved it even more. There is just something about going to my church every Sunday and being with all of those people that I love, that lift me up and help me keep moving forward, that lets me feel the spirit and know that this is God's true church.

How I live my faith

I have had several opportunities to be able to serve with the youth in my church. I've recently been able to go around to different wards all over the East Coast and teach, uplift, help, and energize the youth there. I have held several callings and am about to serve a mission in Brazil.
