Hi I'm Marcus

I'm a sports fan, I love to laugh, I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in Arizona. I love sports! I enjoy Basketball, Football and soccer. My favorite team is my hometown Portland Trailblazers. I also like music, movies, and making people laugh. I basically just enjoy having a good time in life and I'm always up for anything that sounds fun or exciting. After high school I did a semester at Brigham Young University. I have also worked as a lifeguard at my local YMCA and made pizza's at Little Caesar's.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always grown up in the Mormon faith. It was something I was taught to believe in ever since I was a child. While I was growing up though and especially in my teenage years, religion was not one of my top priorities. I couldn't see how following Jesus Christ's example and keeping the commandments could bring me the happiness and joy that I was looking for. After High School the time came for me to decide whether or not I was going to serve as a full time missionary for my church. I knew that I needed to find out for myself if everything I had been taught my whole life was really true or not. I couldn't devote 2 years of my life as a missionary if I wasn't certain that what I was telling others was the truth. I needed to know for certain that the doctrine I was going to be teaching was true. I had been taught that the only real answers come from God and I decided to sincerely pray about serving a mission and about a lot of things that were on my mind. As I prayed I had a powerful spiritual experience that I will never forget. I felt an amazing peace and happiness come over me. I knew that God did in fact hear and answer my prayer and wanted me to share my knowledge of the restored gospel with others.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary, so I live my Faith to its fullest everyday. I spend all my time teaching people about the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ and trying to share my powerful message to all who will listen. Its been amazing to devote my time to serving others and doing all I can to help them come closer to the Savior, Jesus Christ. I have truly seen miracles as people have prayed about the message of the restoration and have decided to bring there lives in harmony with the teachings of Jesus Christ. I have experienced an indescribable joy at the opportunity to help people change there lives for the better.
