Hi I'm Dallas

I'm a high school graduate, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from High School this past June, and worked over the summer as an intern at a Healthcare Data Analytics company. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a missionary in the Ukraine Dnepropetrovsk Mission where I speak the Russian language.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God lives, He loves me, and He has a plan for me. This church has given me direction and meaning in my life. I know that God has prepared certain tasks for me in this life that exist to help me learn and come back to Him. Challenges exist and trials will come, but knowing that I can turn to the Lord has given me the strength to carry on. Everything that He does is to help me come back to Him, and to live with my family for Eternity. I am a Mormon because I not only learn these things, but I do these things. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we have the priesthood, which makes it possible for us to perform the ordinances necessary to come to God. And these ordinances are available to all who will come unto Christ and and accept His gospel. Lastly, I am a Mormon because the things that we learn are true. I know that Joseph Smith really saw what he said he saw, I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book that was inspired by God, I know that we don't have all the answers now but God is there waiting for us to ask the questions, I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that through Him I can be forgiven and become the man that God wants me to be.

How I live my faith

The biggest way that I live my faith is through service. I have participated in many different service projects ranging from building a wall in a river, to helping a new family move into their house. When I see others, I try to think about how the Savior sees them and about how much He loves them. With that in mind, serving becomes a natural response. I know that we are all brothers and sisters because we are all children of our Heavenly Father. My purpose as a missionary is to help others to come unto Christ, and I love the time that I have to serve others and help them learn about the message of the Restored Gospel.
