Hi I'm Devin Luthi

I'm serving in the California Long Beach Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like being in the outdoors. I enjoy going kayaking and mountain biking. I play the guitar and I love watching old movies. My mother and father raised me in the church and taught me the values that they live. I am the third child of four. I've lived in four different states and have visited nearly every other state in the US. I am called to serve in the California Long Beach Mission and it has blessed me to be part of the Lord's work.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I want to be. I know that whatever god has in store for me is always for my benefit. I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the church that god wants us to join. Its not that Heavenly Father loves his children any less because they believe differently than we do. But I know that God wants us to join the mormon church because he wants us to be closer to him. I feel closer to him as i obey his commandments. I feel closer to him as I perform the ordinances of my salvation. I feel closer to him as I serve others. I am a mormon because I love being close to god.

How I live my faith

I am a Melchezidek priesthood holder and I love being worthy of it. As a Melchezidek priesthood holder, I have the authority to act in god's name. As I am worthy of it, the power of god is able to work through me and touch the lives of those around me. It is a sacred responsibility and duty. Both of my older brothers have served missions. They changes so much and have matured in the knowledge of right and wrong. I want to feel that change as well. I want to be a better man. I want to be able to change people's lives for good. I want to be the example that emulates Christ's.
