Hi I'm Mark

I grew up in California and now live in Texas. I love my Family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California and I currently live in Texas. I served a full-time mission in Maracaibo, Venezuela where I loved preaching the Gospel to the wonderful people there. I work in IT doing Software Development. I enjoy Golf, Basketball, and Ultimate Frisbee. I love spending time with my beautiful wife and kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I followed Moroni's promise in the Book of Mormon and received confirmation through the Holy Ghost the Book of Mormon and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are true. When Jesus Christ was on the Earth he setup his Church and those same principles are found in his Church today. Through my membership in the Church I receive peace and hope because I understand where I came from, why I am here on the Earth, and where I am going after this life. Moroni's Promise: 3 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts. 4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. 5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending Church meetings each week with my family and regularly visit Church members to discuss Gospel principles. I find opportunities to serve others on Christ's behalf since he is not here in person to do so. I try to share the love Christ has for us through kind words and loving service to all. I help teach the Gospel at Church to kids, youth, and adults. I love to teach others because not only do I learn more about the Gospel but I can learn from others.
