Hi I'm Mark

I grew up in Utah, I am now kickin it in the South, I am the Ping Pong Master, and i'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 20 years old and love life. I am not going to school right now but after one more year in the mission field i will go back. I do not know what I want to become when i grow up but I know it will be something cool. I love doing things outside. Hiking, fishing, frisbee, if it is outside i am down. I also really like to play and watch sports. I love my family and some of the best times i have ever had has been with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because just i prayed to know if it was true just like the Bible and Book of Mormon tell us to. I grew up in the church and probably wasnt as thankful i should have been for all the blessings i enjoyed. But I did pray and I know for myself that I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows me. I know Christ and that He is my Saviour. I know that Joseph Smith prayed and saw God and Jesus Christ. I know that he was an instument in the Lords hands to restore all the truths of the gospel back on the earth, just like all the Prophets of old. Io know that families can be together forever because of the Restoration. I also know that everyone can ask Heavenly Father to know if something is true and that He will let them know, if they ask in faith. I know this because i have seen it.

How I live my faith

Right know I am living my faith by sharing my faith. A full time missionary and talk to people about how they can strengthen their faith in the saviour and come closer to him. I am having the time of my life doing it and it gets better my the day. It is a shame that it only lasts two years.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

Mark
These terms are all used for the geographic organization of the church. because our churchs, the teachings and beliefs, are the same all around the world there needs to be organized areas that help organize worship. After all God's Kingdom is a house of order. Small areas or areas with fewer members are organized into Branches. Areas with more members are organized into Wards. Wards and Branches are all organized into Stakes. Show more Show less
