Hi I'm Derek Arrington

I was born and raised in Arizona. I played football, baseball, and ran track. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am Derek. I love to play sports, sing, and be with friends and family. I am currently on a mission, I am going to serve in the Cuernavaca Mexico mission. I love to learn and be able to help all of those around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church my whole life. I am a Mormon because I am converted to this Gospel. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true it blesses my life every day. I know this because the Holy Ghost has testified to me of its truth. I know that Jesus is the Christ. I know that he lived and suffered for our sins and made it possible for us to return and live with our Heavenly Father again. I know that Joseph Smith restored christ true church today. I know that he saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that as we read this book that we will receive answers to any question that we have. I know that as we put our strength in the Lord that we will be able to do all things. I know that we have the opportunity to live with our family for time and all eternity. I know that the Lord want to bless us, we just need to put our faith in him. I am a Mormon, I love it, and I want everyone to be able to have it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. Currently I am serving the Lord on a mission for two years, but before I was a member of the young men program and was in varying leadership roles in that program.
