Hi I'm Marshall

I'm a drummer. I'm a pretty social guy. I'm told I have good hair. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Sydney, Australia, but spent most of my childhood living in Taipei, Taiwan. When I was ten, my family moved to Texas in the United States. It was there, when I was ten, that I began drumming, and I've been doing it ever since, playing in symphonies, jazz groups, and drumlines, not to mention several rock n' roll bands. It's pretty fun and I love it. I really love some quality jazz and lot's of newer less known music. My favorite band is Dr. Dog. I love my family more than anything else. I'm so grateful for my parents and all they have done for me to get me to where I am in life. My brothers and sister are best too. Nothing will ever beat spending time with them. I'm currently serving as a missionary in Toronto, Canada. I love the service that I'm doing. It is so rewarding to help people to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the Gospel by my parents. They taught me from a young age how to follow Christ's teachings and that I could find real happiness by living it. The Holy Ghost has, countless times, confirmed the truthfulness of the Gospel to me. One of the most prominent experiences was when I was sixteen and decided to read the Book of Mormon for myself. It took me several months to finally finish, but I will always remember the night I finished the book and knelt down to pray. I asked Heavenly Father if it was true. He answered me with a overwhelming feeling of his love, and then through the feelings in my heart and through my thoughts, He confirmed to me that it is true. More than anything else, I'm a Mormon because I've seen how much it has blessed my life. It brings my family closer together. I can see directly how the principles help me to be happy. It gives me direction and motivation.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a full time missionary for the Church. I spend all day every day, for two years, teaching people about the Gospel. I love what I do because I see others finding the same happiness I have. While I was at university, before I was a missionary, I worked together with a girl in our ward (congregation) to put a gathering together for a little bit of fun each Monday night. It was called a FHE group. All of us students were away from our families and it was just a little way for us all to have extra support and friendship. We did things like ice blocking, hide n' go seek in the campus library, and games including strapping balloons to feet and trying to pop other's balloons. It was a grand ole time. And I'm proud to report our FHE group had highest attendance.
