Hi I'm Mason Parkes

I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. I am going on a mission to Monterrey, Mexico and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm preparing to go on a mission to Monterrey Mexico. Some of my hobbies are playing and watching sports, like lacrosse or football. I also like tv and music. I went to a semester of college at BYU in provo, and am looking foward to continuing that after my mission. My dad was deployed to Iraq twice and my mom is a kindergarten teacher, also i have two sisters. I am an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church but as I have grown I have learned a lot more about the Church. I believe the things that I have learned and I believe that this is God's true church on this earth. I think that it is important to know that many of the things that Christ did on this earth were lost after his death but that they are now back. Due to modern day revelation to the Prophet Joseph Smith and his successors the things that Christ did on earth are now back in full. I believe that this church teaches the truth and that it is the true way to return to live with God, our Heavenly Father, again.

How I live my faith

I'm going on a mission. I am preparing for my mission by reading the Book of Mormon. I love to learn about the Savior. I like to read about his life and his ministry and atonement. I try my best to follow his example in all that I do. I think that one of the best ways to show faith is through trying to live the things that the Gospel teaches and I try to do this every day.
