Hi I'm Mitch

I am serving a mission in the Sao Paulo, Brazil North Mission, I love fixing computers and anything broken, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Federal Way, Washington. I have two sisters and a brother. I am 19 years old. I grew up playing baseball and some basketball. I also was on a couple different swim teams. At the age of 15 I started Ballroom Dancing and did so until now. I am now serving a two year mission for the Church in the Sao Paulo Brazil, North Mission. Some of my hobbies are playing guitar and other musical instruments, fixing computers and anything that is broken, playing videogames with friends, reading, watching a good movie or TV show, swimming, playing or watching baseball, playing anyother sport with friends, ballroom dancing (which I might now compete my whole life, but will always dance with whomever I marry), and of course eating good food.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon by my parents. But, around the age of 14-16 is when I really started questioning for myself whether the Church was true or not. I read the Book of Mormon for myself and prayed to know if it were true. I received my answer, even though it wasn't instant. And I know this Church is true. The Gospel of Jesus Christ blesses my family immensely, and I know my future family will also be able to reap the blessings of this Gospel as I will lead them in the ways that my parents led me.

How I live my faith

I go to Church every Sunday and attend all meetings I can pertaining to the Church. Before I was serving my mission, I tried my best to read the scriptures and pray every morning and evening and I usually succeeded. Now that I am serving a mission, I pray every morning and night (and also when I am feeling alone or down), and I read the scriptures constantly. It helps that there is a lot of time for that, but I also know that I will carry the habit into my life after my mission. I hope that I can always try my hardest to become closer to God, and I hope that I can lead my future family in the same direction.
