Hi I'm Ethan Despain

I'm from Arizona. I love music and learning. I'm a missionary serving in the Washington Kennewick Mission. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I sing and play piano and guitar. I am enrolled as a Pre-Mechanical Engineering Major at BYU and will attend after my mission. I want to eventually be an aerospace engineer and raise a family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and grew up living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Over time, I was able to recognize the peace and the blessings that I have received by keeping the commandments of God and having the Spirit of the Lord be with me. I am a Mormon because I know that following the example of our Savior and living as He lived is truly the happiest way to live. I know that by following Him, He can make me more than I could ever be on my own.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have left my family for two years and dedicated those years to my Savior, Jesus Christ, so I can help other people find the joy and peace that His restored gospel has brought me.
