Hi I'm Mitchell
I'm a grandfather of one so far. My wife is a great cook and makes me very happy with her salsa and roast. We live in Arizona and the summers are very hot. I'm in the process of looking for a new career and I'm thinking about moving to Utah. I still want to pursue my education and work towards a graduate degree. I don't want my son to pass me up yet. He begins college when he returns from two years in Uruguay. I want him to go to Brigham Young University and so I'll move there if I need to to make that happen. He wants to get a PHD. I want to help him all I can.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born a Mormon, but I like many of my faith still had to come to know it was really true. So I did that. I was 18 when it all came together for me after lots of prayer and study. It was special to me and a combination of experiences I shall never forget. I found out that the Holy Ghost is real. It just gets better and better with time. You'll see what I mean.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
Mormons go on missions to share what we know with the world. We believe that Jesus Christ has commanded us to do so. We do it because we love the Savior and because we love our fellow man. I love the testimony of a new member of the Church. Missionaries find those that are looking for the truth. The Holy Ghost helps them find these good people. My son is serving a mission in Uruguay. He has grown so much. I miss him, but it makes me very happy when I read his emails each week. He is doing so well. He is so happy and teaching many about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I can't wait to hug my son again after two years. He has baptized a number of people and tells us how much better their lives have become and how happy they are. I served my mission to Spain.
How I live my faith
I live my faith every day. I wouldn't be comfortable doing otherwise. It's what I know and compared to everything else I ever knew before, there's nothing like it anywhere. I love the quiet because I'm trying to get better at listening to the Holy Ghost when it tries to help me make good choices and correct decisions. Mostly it's a whisper and its up to me to listen very carefully. It takes some work, but that's the way it should be. I get better at listening with practice. I have some very tender moments when I see the hand of God in my life. It feels really good and makes me happy.
