Hi I'm Mitch

Baptised Dec.20th 2009.

About Me

I'm an easy going person who loves to help people. I'm an EMT and I'm currently going to school for firefighting.

Why I am a Mormon

I learned of the Gospel through my girlfriend, Stacie. We had been together for three years and yet I had not given any thought to her church. In September of 2009 when she left to School at BYU Idaho I decided it was time for me to give it a sincere chance. I chose to do so when she was gone so I could learn on my own and have no outside influences. Following my first lesson with the missionaries I was astounded! I could not believe it had taken me so long to open my heart and just listen. From that day forth the lessons only became better and on December 20th of that year I was baptized. Since this time the blessings of the gospel have given me so much good in my life and I encourage anyone to do what I have done, to open your heart and listen to these teachings and i promise you will come away with something special. I am still with my girlfriend and it has now been about five years. Recently, Stacie and I got engaged! We are getting married June 2, 2012 at the Newport Beach Temple. I could not ask for a more blessed life.

How I live my faith

In the church I have a calling. My calling is to be a ward missionary. It is my responsibility to basically take care of the new members of our church and those who wish to learn. On a regular basis I will join our full time missionaries on lessons with people who are investigating the church. When we have activities or sporting events it is my responsibility to make sure any new members or investigators are welcome. This calling is a true blessing to have. When I first received this calling I was very excited. When I was learning of the Gospel I was taught by ward missionaries and i was able to see the importance of them. They made me feel very welcome and were able to answer any questions that I had. When I go out and teach an investigator of the church I can see and understand their questions, for I too had once had the same or similar questions before I became a member of this church and can explain to them my own experiences.
