Diego before missionaries baptized him and his mom. Later, his own mission began in Honduras
– and his son is currently serving in the same mission.
He has served in several Bishoprics, as Ward Mission Leader, High Councilor, Stake Sunday
School President, and currently teaches youth Sunday School.
Professionally, he teaches Institute and Seminary in the Utah North Area. For 5 years, his team
wrote the Online Seminary Curriculum. He presents at BYU and BYU-Idaho Education Week.
He’s best known for his popular ‘brotherichards’ Instagram & Facebook accounts and he is the

Most of all, he loves teaching and being with valiant Latter-Day Saints.
