Hi I'm Elder Dorian Achaval

Im a musician, science enthusiast, long boarder, and full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

About Me

I cant get enough of the world around me and have always been on the adventurous side of things. I have been a member for two years now and half of that time has been while on my mission. My best friends were the ones who introduced me to the Gospel. Talking and listening to others has always been one of my favorite ways to view the world and to experience what really matters in life. I love to share my testimony of Jesus Christ and of the Restored Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because a few of the closest friends that are near dear to my heart decided to share what they knew was true with me out of sincere love for me. I will always be thankful for that blessing. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me such immense joy and has made me realize that I truly am a child of Heavenly Father. My testimony is very special to me and always will be. I know that The Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and Jesus Christ is the living son of God.

How I live my faith

I am not only the first missionary to serve in my family, but I was also the first one to join. At first it was a lonely start, but as I continued to read, pray, go to church, and prepare for my mission, I was able to find strength and comfort even in the hardest of days. Jesus Christ has always been the greatest for all of us and as I set goals for myself to live what I learn and be more like Him.
