    Thanks for posting the documentary! I couldn’t watch it live due to lag (I think we ate up all of their bandwidth). It’s a beautiful documentary and I thank for for sharing it with all of us and bringing us along for your family reunion too(Uncle David!).

    David Thank you so very much for sharing your Mission journey. KSL, forever greatful for bringing this video to us, his fans. David you are truly a fabulous role model to people of your faith and to all people of other faiths. I admire your devotion to what you believe in. You have shown much love and courage to serve your church and the Chilean people. Bless you and yours. So glad KSL gave us a glimpse into your life on your Mission

    I honestly thought I had commented on this incredible glimpse into David’s spiritual mission. I apologize for the delay.

    I was immediately in tears watching the many ways David touched the lives of everyone he met. There was never a doubt in my mind that he would put his heart and soul into his mission, as he does with everything he encounters in his life.

    God bless you, David for sharing this MOST important journey. I wish I could find the words to express how deeply proud I am of you~ always have been! I feel so blessed to be your fan.

    We’re here if and when you need us during your “catching up” phase. God Bless You! ((hugs))

My whole family watched it and we’ve become not just fans of your music and voice, but more of your person and character! You have our love and respect.
    The future shines brightest for you, young man! All the best to you <3 STILL HERE #DA2014

    Thank you David and to KSL for letting everyone see a glimpse of your life as missionary. You truly are heaven sent to help brighten, inspire and change people’s life. I knew in my heart that you are a special spiritual being with a rare God given gift that connect to people of all ages. As Dean Kaelin said: “Some people just have a spark of greatness in them, that when brought out, benefits the world.” Thank you for all the decision you made in the past, It is with this decision that we were lucky to have found you. May God be with you and always guide you thru your life journey. Looking forward to what is to come David :))

    There’s an LDS church in this part of the world where I live. Whenever I see those young men in white shirts and black ties walking about, I would think to myself (albeit rather guiltily), “If they try to approach me, I shall cross over to the other side of the road. ..”

    Watching this documentary and listening to David sharing his missionary experiences have helped to open my mind. The next time I come across an LDS missionary here, I will stop, with a smile on my face, and listen to what he has to say.

    Thanks David, for showing the world your wisdom and compassion. I will try to follow the example you have set.
