Hi I'm Devin

I'm crazy, I love sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Devin, I come from a family of 5. My parents and my little brother and Sister teenagers and me, the oldest. Currently single. My hobbies are American football, drawing, painting when i can, paintball, hanging out with my friends, and watching movies. I may or may not like to do crazy things every once in a while. I am an Eagle Scout. I also love the outdoors expecially camping. I am currrently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church all my life. My parents have always been great examples to me of what christ like people are. I have had great leaders who have pushed me to become the best i can be expecially in church and the scouting program. I didn't really know that the church was true until i was about 14 when started reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. When i got the feeling that told me the church was true, i changed my life so i could start preparing for a mission. I wanted to share the love and happiness that i have felt with other people. I know that the church is true and that there is no way to find true happiness with out this gospel of Jesus Christ. Faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, repentance, Baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost (acts 17:1-6) and enduring to the end. I know that the church has a living prophet today and that this church has the authority of God to direct his church and perform saving ordinances like baptism and giving the gift of the holy ghost. (John 3:5)

How I live my faith

I live my faith now by proclaiming the Gospel to the world as a full time missionary for the church and helping others come unto christ.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Devin
Being a missionary myself, we talk about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel is faith in jesus christ and his atonement, repentance (from sin or when we break God's commandments), Baptism, Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. We talk about how God always reveals his gospel to the world by calling a prophet of God. After Jesus and the Apostles died, there was a great apostasy, where there was no prophet or the authority of God on the earth until Joseph Smith. That Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ and through him, God restored the Same church Jesus Christ set up on the church with the authority of God. You yourself can know through reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
