Hi I'm Derek

I live in Utah, and I have my mission call to the Mexico Reynosa mission!! I'm a Mormon

About Me

I recently graduated from High School at Riverton High. I love to sing so I tried out for and made Acappella and Madrigals! The people I met there have become great friends for now and for life! I have recently received my mission call to the Mexico Reynosa mission! I flew through High School enjoying every second of it and made memories that I will cherish forever.

Why I am a Mormon

In the beginning, I am a Mormon because I was born into it. But as I have progressed through the stages of growth and adversity, my Father in Heaven has revealed to me that this is the true, and restored church. I have been born of goodly parents and there are many amazing leaders around me who bolster me up and strengthen my testimony because of the dedication and the wisdom they have obtained in their lives. I can say that I KNOW this church is true. I am so very grateful for the many blessings that come from being a Mormon and I love the eternal happiness that also comes with it. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves all of us and wants the very best for us. I know that He loves us so much that he created a Plan of Happiness for us so that we can live with our families together forever! That if we live our life on this Earth according to His plan that we will be in a blessed and happy state! I am so very grateful for the opportunity that I have to go to Mexico and to bring this knowledge of happiness to the people of Mexico!

How I live my faith

I live my faith through many different ways. I try to lead my fellow peers by example. I have been put in a position of leadership over my peers ever since I was 12 and I have absorbed every single bit of knowledge that I can about leadership skills. I try to live everyday of my life so that if someone met me there would be no question of my values and religious beliefs. I have culminated all of the things that I have learned in my life into one goal - serving a mission. On my mission I have been called to serve to go to the Reynosa, Mexico area for 2 years of my life to serve the people there in a way that is pleasing to our Heavenly Father. I will be there proclaiming the truthfulness of this church - the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
