Hi I'm Derik

I am currently serving in the Canada Edmonton Mission. I grew up in Meridian, Idaho. I enjoy robotics and computers.

About Me

I enjoy programming computers. I was on my high school FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics team for four years. We attended competitions from Salt Lake City to St. Louis. I have 1 younger brother and 4 younger sisters. When I return from my mission in Canada, I will be attending BYU to study Computer Science.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into the church, but more importantly, because I know the church is true. I have read the book of Mormon and felt the Spirit confirm that it was translated by Joseph Smith by the power of God.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of the church my whole life. I have enjoyed the safety and security it provides in my life. It has steered my life in a wholesome direction. It helps me stay clear of addictions and bad habits.
