Hi I'm Gage Dietrich

I'm serving a full time mission in the Alabama, Birmingham mission (Roll Tide)! I was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

About Me

I am serving full time in the Alabama, Birmingham mission. I'm 19 years of age. I LOVE sports. I played Basketball, Lacrosse, and Football. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when I was 10 years old. I have 2 younger brothers an older sister and 2 loving parents. I came to my mission from Utah, but was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I have also lived in South Carolina and Iowa. I went to a year of college before my mission. I was born into the church and have loved every second of it!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the church is true. I have personally felt the Lords tender mercy in my life. As I read the scriptures and pray daily and nightly, I can feel the spirit and I am comforted. I know that the Savior died for us so that we may repent for our sins and return to Him in the kingdom of Heaven. I know the Savior loves me and I can feel his love. I know that without the Lord in our lives, we would be lost and I know I am serving in Alabama so I can find those who are lost and guide them back to their loving Father in Heaven. Past events in my life have proven to me that God does exist. The spirit testifies to me every time I read the scriptures that what I am reading is true and every time that happens my faith in Jesus Christ grows. The spirit has truly converted me. That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by fulfilling my callings. I was a ward missionary and serve people in need and help in any way I can. I am fulfilling my calling by continually serving the wonderful people of Alabama. I strive to follow the teachings of D&C 81:5 "Wherefore, be faithful; stand in the office which I have appointed unto you; succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees."
