Hi I'm Darren

Originally from American Samoa. Love football and rugby, and I especially love doing services for others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play football and rugby, but I broke my left hip twice from football and rugby. I will be attending Utah State after my mission (2017-2018) for medical school and for football. I'm a big Samoan guy, but don't let that fool you, I'm probably the only brown teddy bear you'll see alive.

Why I am a Mormon

My Grandma just passed away (Feb 2015), and I know that this church is the only church that has the plan of salvation or the plan of happiness. I know that because of Jesus Sacrifice, we can live again, and because of him I can not only live again but see my grandma in the next life. My grandma took care of me ever since day 1 and because of her, she brought me back in US and find a better opportunity in life and in the future. I know this church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is true without a doubt. I know God lives and his son Jesus Christ. I know because of Christ we can live again and be with are family forever.

How I live my faith

I'm a ward missionary, and I love visiting people that are members and non-members with the missionaries. I love doing services to any people that needs it, and getting to know them more and laugh. Love singing with the missionaries at people's home with the ukulele, it invites the spirit more and you can fill it so strong, even if we don't sound good at singing.
