Hi I'm Mason

I was born in California. like to juggle, hang out with friends and do some occational off-road unicycling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California and am the oldest of 4 brothers; but my parents are currently in the process of adopting a 5th. I enjoy seeing movies, juggling, mountain biking, hanging out with friends, and riding my unicycle (Both at the skatepark and off road whenever I get a chance). Right now, however, I am currently serving a full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother was a member growing up and I was born into the church. After I was baptized at 8 years old and until about age 14 my family was not very active. We moved out to a very small and friendly town with a very strong LDS influece. A lot of the new friends I made were members and my family was friendshipped into attending church regularly. It wasn't long after the rest of my family (including my dad) got baptized and I made the decission to go on a mission.

How I live my faith

My faith is a part of my everyday life. It positivley influences what I do, say, and how I interact with other people. I have participated in innumerable service and community projects for people both of my faith and not. The church has helped me on my way through the scouting program as well to help me achieve my goal of becoming an Eagle Scout.

How does the Church finance its operations?

The church undergoes many operations to increase the growth and sustainment of the church; all to help the gospel reach more people. Building church buildings, temples, funding many aspects of missionary work, and even aiding to victims of natural disasters. This funding mostly comes through tithing and other offerings members make to the church. The blessings of tithing in my life have been amazing, but those blessings extend out also to people all across the globe. Show more Show less
