Hi I'm Mason

I grew up in Mission Viejo, California. Now I am going to Barcelona, Spain to serve a mission.

About Me

I am 19 years old and have a lot of hobbies. Some of my favorite would have to be first, going to the lake and boating with my family. I have always loved spending time with my family, especially when we are on the boat tubing, wakeboarding, or just listening to music and soaking up some sun. Second, I have always enjoyed playing basketball very much; I played for 3 years in High School and play now whenever I have some free time. I am not the best and it doesn't help that i am only 5'10" but I have always just been the point guard so it works out. I attended college for my first year and absolutely loved it, I have not yet decided on a Major yet but I think that I will just take care of some generals and hope that i can figure out what i want to do soon enough. I am fun-loving and always seek to be around my friends and family to spend to quality time; whether that is rollin around in my Ford Taurus trying not to blow out the speakers in the grandpa car, or going to the beach. It doesn't matter to me, i love to just be around people.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been Mormon my entire life and grew up in the church, but that is not the reason why i am still Mormon today. I took upon myself to decide whether the things in the church that i have been taught for my entire life were correct or not. So i decided to pray about the Book of Mormon and truly wanted to receive an answer and i could feel in myheart that it is the word of God. It is difficult to describe the feeling that i felt, but because i felt so good about the Book of Mormon i knew that it was true. I know that since the Book of Mormon is true then this church is the right and true Church of Jesus christ on the Earth. If this Church is true then i want everyone to join, so that's why i decided to serve my mission.

How I live my faith

As of right now i am actually serving a 2-year mission for my church. I have been called to go to Barcelona, Spain and speak Spanish. I am loving serving my mission so far because i have plenty of opportunities to teach about the one thing that has brought so much joy, direction, and purpose into my life; the Gospel. I have plenty of opportunity to search the Bible and the Book of Mormon for wonderful teachings about Jesus Christ and learn many new things every day. Before I came on my mission I participated in a youth group where we would get together with young men and young women of your same age and talk about the scriptures and the Gospel. I always enjoyed going every week because it helped me to learn new things and to strengthen my testimony. It was a great support system as well, because whenever i needed help i knew that i could turn to the other young men to assist me. While at college i also participated in a leadership position where i would lead a group of about 100 or so college kids my age in a spiritual thought from the scriptures and a group prayer. This always helped to strengthen my testimony as well seeing the devout members my age striving to do the will of the Lord.
