Hi I'm Derick

I have a passion for sports and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have been call to serve as a missionary in Bolivia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I Graduated from High school a year ago this June. Sense about August of last year I began preparation for an LDS mission. Beginning with saving up for my mission fund. Sense August I have maintained my night job working as a server. I switched my morning jobs about three times because I had opportunities to make better income. I now have settled down with just two jobs. They both are as a server positions and I am very blessed to have these jobs. Other than this I have proceeded in my mission preparation and received my mission call on July 2, 2014! I have been called to serve in the Bolivia Santa Cruz North Mission. I report to the Colombia Missionary Training Center on November 19, 2014. I will be speaking Spanish! I can now express how honored, humbled, anxious and excited I am to serve the people of Bolivia. Along with that I will take an institute class in the fall in English and Spanish. I will be using Roseta Stone to lean Spanish as fast as I can. This is my plans for now till I leave. Other then this I love to be out doors hiking, playing sports, swimming, or boating I love to be active in my free time when I'm not working. I like to be outside mostly in the mountains of Utah these amazing creations have given me another example of our heavenly fathers amazing power. This is the life of Derick right now. Things are looking up and pray that they continue to do so.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the gospel and the people in it. I have been blessed by the spirit to have witnessed the lords hand in my life daily. I have been able to read the book of Mormon and not only that I have prayed to know of its truthfulness. Through the Spirit that I feel when read this book and having received an answer to my prayers that it is true. It shows me that all that the LDS church teaches must be true and they teach us morals and values. That has and is helping me keep the commandments and grow closer to my heavenly father. Through the gospel I have never felt more joy in my life and this is why I am a mormon

How I live my faith

Other than working towards the mission this is how close I am to serving. I received my mission call on July 2, 2014. I have been called to serve in the Bolivia Santa Cruz North Mission. I report to the Colombia Missionary Training Center on November 19, 2014. I will be speaking Spanish. I can now express how honored, humbled, anxious and excited I am to serve the people of Bolivia. Along with that I will take an institute class in the fall in English and Spanish. I will be using Roseta Stone to lean Spanish as fast as I can. I may also take a Spanish class. This is my plans for now till I leave. I am a teacher in my ward of the youth. I teach the ages of the 9 and 10. I am blessed to teach in my ward with one of my child hood best friend. We also work together at both of our jobs. He has blessed my life immensely in staying close to the gospel and helping me gain my jobs through his recommendations to our boss. This as provided me with the ability to pay for my own mission which I have accomplished as of the month of May. This has been such a blessing and relief for me to not have to worry about money at this time.
