Hi I'm Drake Allen

Lover of the outdoors, high school graduate, and 18 year old missionary.

About Me

Recent graduate of high school where I swam on the Varsity swim team and marched in the drumline. Love to film in the outdoors with my GoPro and travel around seeing the hidden wonders of the world. I'm departing to serve the Lord for two years on a mission to share the gospel and bless the lives of those who accept the message.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be Mormon not because it is easy, cause it rarely is, but because it challenges me and blesses my life. The things I learn I know to be true, as I've seen them to be true in my personal life and in the lives of others. I set myself to a higher standard so that I was become the best I can be and grow to be closer to my Father in Heaven. I love Him, and I know he loves each of his children. I'm grateful for the example of His Son Jesus Christ and for the perfect example he is to us. He suffered for all of our sins so that we may return to live with our Father again, something unfathomable for us on our own. I know the gospel to be true because of the confirmation the Spirit gives to me everything I hear of it's truths, the warm, comforting feeling that only comes in the most genuine of times. The love that exists in this church is rarely found anywhere else and it is my biggest wish to carry it with me through my life, and the challenges that await. I know that through Christ and the gospel we can do all things so I hold true to it through this new chapter I'm starting in my life.

How I live my faith

I've now been called to serve a mission and it has already began changing my life. I've learned to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit as I prepare and it helps me more fully understand what I need to do. I try to love others as Christ does and serve those around me selflessly, always being a friend to those in need. I keep high standards for myself so that I can be a beacon to those around me by setting good examples and exercising my faith in all I do.
