Hi I'm Dennis Alexander VanBuskirk

I'm the oldest of six brothers, I'm an Eagle Scout, I'm from California, but I'm going to Mexico to serve a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i'm an Eagle scout. I love hiking, camping, and riding my bike. I love to bake cookies!!!!!! I have won prizes for my snickerdoodles at the county fair. I play water polo and swim with my brothers. i have five younger brothers and no sisters. We have fun together.I'm going to miss them when I leave on my mission in two weeks. When I get back some of them will be gone on their missions, but I know we will always be there for each other.

Why I am a Mormon

I want to serve a mission in my own well not anybody else. I know that the church is trure also that we have a living prophet here on earth. And also that going on a mission is a comandment of the lord. And also that Jesus died for me and for all. I know these things to be true in the name of jesus christ amen.

How I live my faith

I go to church and every morning for my four years of high school I went to an early morning religiuon class called seminary. It was fun and I learned a lot about the scriptures. I have attended youth activities regularly as well as boy scouts at my church. I also work right now as a ward missionary helping out local missionaries, but in 2 weeks I will leave my home and family to be a full-time missionary in Tuxtla Guiterriez, Mexico. I'm nervous because I don't speak much Spanish, but I know if I work hard and study everyday the Lord will help me to communicate with the people there. I am excited to go and do the work for the Lord for the next two years. I'm glad that I get to be an example to my 5 younger brothers. I know my sacrifice will bless my life and the lives of those I serve.
