Hi I'm Mark Burkey

I'm a missionary serving in the California Fresno mission. I grew up on some farmland in Houston,Texas and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up and worked on a farm which mixed with attending church, helped me grow to help others and give service through the small talents that I have. One talent is my ability to fix cars. I see a broken car, find the problem, and loose any sense of time while fixing it.If theres someone on the side of the road broken down, I will always do my best to help them out.

Why I am a Mormon

Through high school I didn't know what to believe. I wanted to do all the fun and dangerous things I always heard of others doing. But I realized that all the cool cars I could get, all the crazy stunts I could do are just in this life. Just like in 2 Corinthians 4:17-18, I know that I need to focus on things that are eternal, like families and knowledge.This gospel has blessed me so much in my life that I feel that I need to share it with everyone that will listen so they can have a greater joy in their lives. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I decided to give service to others by going on a mission. I wanted to give back the things that god gave me, but I figured out that I'm just digging my hole deeper because I know what I'm doing is right and god continues to bless us for every good thing that we do.
