Hi I'm Marcus

I'm a Texan, a volunteer missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently, I am serving a mission in the Nebraska Omaha Mission field. I feel like I've grown more in this short time of serving than ever before in my life. I meet new people everyday and love being a missiononary. Prior to coming on a mission I went to LDSBC. I plan on getting a degree in business. I'm not quite sure the direction I want to take but I enjoy all aspects of business.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. But that's not why I consider myself a Mormon. Growining up I had always lived by the testiomonies of my family and friends, but the time came when I needed to gain my own testimoney. I didn't have an amazing conversion story, I just reflected on my life and thought about how blessed I was. I have two loving parents who follow the commandments and who have taught me the same. I looked at the rest of the world and saw how so many people don't have what I have. I thought about how blessed I was. Then I just kind of thought to my self. "You know this is true. Why are you even asking?" So when people ask "Why are you a Mormon?" I tell them I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know it is Christs' restored gospel on this Earth. I know that this church is lead by a prophet of God. I know the Book of Mormon, the keystone of our religion, is a true book. And I know this because I have seen the blessings that come from this gospel.

How I live my faith

I feel like living ones faith takes more than just going to church. Our faith should affect every decision we make. And my faith helps me make the right decisions everyday. I am living my faith right now by serving as a Missionary. I have set apart two years of my life to teach the gospel. It hasn't been easy and I have had to sacrifice a lot, but what I have sacrificed is nothing compared to the joy that comes from teaching others the gospel. I love this work!

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Marcus
No. We believe in teaching corret principles, and letting man govern himself. As members, we paticipate in political activies. But only as concernded citizens, not as memebers of the church. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Marcus
Because the Bible is the word of God. "We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly." God speaks to the world through prophets, and the Bible is a teaching of the Prophets. By learning from the Bible we are, in turn, learning from God. Show more Show less
