Hi I'm Elder Elijah De Peiza

I love sports, i love to dance and sing, i want to be become a obstetrician. I love the gospel. I am a missionary. I am a mormon.

About Me

I like to play sports. In high school i played on the football, volleyball,basketball,handball,rugby and track team, i received 3 scholarships two in canada and one in las vegas for rugby, and one scholarship for basketball. I love music. I play the piano and guitar. I love to sing and i am a provincial gold medalist ballroom dancer and i hip-hop dance.I attend the gym 4 times a week. I go to a Body Jam exercise class and a Zumba exercise class with my mom every week. I will be going to U of Alberta or BYU to become a gynecologist and obstetrician. But my scholarships and school and a family has been put on hold because i am serving a mission for the church in Toronto, Canada. It is truly changing my life and it has been the greatest experience so far. My love for people has grown so much and learning about the gospel and teaching it brings joy to my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon becasue i want to follow christ. Following the gospel makes my life so much better. It has grown me into the man i am today. It has taught me the appreciation of serving others, the treasure and great blessing that my family is to my life. It has made me a contributing member of society. Being able to the truth of the gospel has open my eyes and has helped me in relationships with my friends, family and strangers. I have seen lives changed for the better from taking apart of the gospel. I cant see my life any other way and i know that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has made me a great person and will continue to bless me for my whole life

How I live my faith
