Hi I'm Devon

I grew up in Chicago, Illinois and later moved to Columbus, Ohio. I'm currently in Santiago, Chile as a missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I used to be an avid soccer player and later moved on to rowing for a crew team which I had a lot of fun with. I am an Eagle Scout and am very proud of that. I am a highschool graduate and am now serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Chile Santiago South Mission where I am preaching the gospel in the Spanish language!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon you ask? I have chosen to be a member of Christs church as I have come to see his light and feel his love. I have prayed to know if this Church is true and if this is the path that is right for me and my prayers have been answered. I have come to know for myself that this is the true church of God and that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God. That Joseph was instructed to restore his true Church and to translate the Book of Mormon so that we may have another testament of Jesus Christ inorder to have revelation directly regarding our dispensation. I know that this is all true, and this means a lot to me. It brings me peace and an understanding to why we are here and what our purpose is. It gives me an understanding, and brings me joy knowing that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are a prayer away anytime I need them. It gives me strength knowing that my Father in Heaven will only give me trials that he knows I can handle, wether I know it at the time or not their is a purpose for everything. Their is so many reasons for why I am a Mormon including the gift of Repentance, and the list could go on and on and that is why I love my faith. But in short, I am a Mormon because I have come to find for my self that this Church is true and that is what I now ask of you. To simply pray to know the truth with true intent and with a open and willing heart.

How I live my faith

Currently I am living my faith by serving as a full time missionary and being a representive for our Savior. I do all I can to make sure Christ is a part of my life and that I am living in a manner that is Christ-like. I share the message of our Savior to all those that have been put in my path and invite them to come unto Christ. As a missionary I do not strive to persuade or to convince people that my Church is true, my goal is to help people build a stronger relationship with their Heavenly Father and with his son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. I want to be able to share that light of Christ with all I come to meet and to love the people I meet just as Christ would. I want to be able to show the people how much their Savior loves them, just as much as he loves me and just as much as he loves all of us.
