Hi I'm Mark Leavitt.

I love all the good things in life! I absolutely love music, rugby, family, and the Lord! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love. . . life! That's just the best way I can put it. I love to play sports, the competition and the athletisism of it it just awesome! Well, as long as it's fun. My favorite sport is rugby! I just love being in the scrum. I love music! Especially Singing and playing instruments. I realized I could sing in 9th grade, and I've just ran with it. I love to play the piano, and the ukulele, with those sweet sounds. I love to act! Especially in musicals. I love to learn, in high school I took all the hard classes I could without sacrificing all my other activities (such as sports, music, drama, etc.) I had a tougher time in high school than I've had so far at college. I have New Zealand heritage. Right now I'm serving a mission in the best mission in the world! The Florida Tampa Mission! I love teaching the true gospel of Christ to all those who will listen. So all around, I'm just an. . . all around guy! Thus, I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've specifically prayed to my Father in Heaven to know if the Book of Mormon was true, and too know if this is God's true church. I've recieved my answer, so now I'm trying to bring others unto the true fold of God. My testimony is renewed every time I do something I know my Father wants me to do, and he blesses me for it. More often than not, I don't recieve earthly blessings. I recieve spiritual blessings, like praying for strength so I may better endure this trial I'm going through. The Lord blesses me every day, and I know it's because I'm doing what I need to be doing. It all goes back to that one moment, when I prayed to know the truth, and I know that my prayer was answered, and I know that the Lord answers all prayers.

How I live my faith

Right now I am called as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints in the Florida Tampa Mission. I try to teach everyone I come in contact with, so they can have and feel the peace and joy that this Gospel has brought into my life. I want others to have these same feelings of peace and joy, that is why I am out here teaching about faith in Christ and his atonement, repentence, how we must follow the example of Christ and be baptised, and how we must endure to the end. These things are the only way we can truly be happy in this life, and recieve eternal life in the world to come. This is how I live my faith, by trying to be a teacher to all, and by trying to live the life that Christ lived, and to follow his perfect example. Lets go and do the things which the Lord has commanded us!
