Hi I'm Mark

I am a returned missionary. I love to draw and paint. A university student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am now been home from my mission: Oakland/San Francisco Mission, for almost a year now. I learned so much about who I truly was or who my Heavenly Father saw I was. Now I am trying to figure out this next stage of life: dating, marriage, and career. Its not easy but it is an adventure for sure. Im currently in Open Studies, exploring my career options and at the same time look for my eternal companion:) For my favourite things to do: I love to draw portraits. I find the human face very fascinating and beautiful. With a simple movement in the facial muscles, a very profound expression can be portrayed. I also love to watch feel good movies to inspire to live better.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know my faith is purely centred on Christ and His Atonement. From the teaching of the living prophets and the teachings of the Book of Mormon, I have come to know that God is our Father in heaven and He loves us. Christ lives. I love him. I am thankful for His grace to help me with my everyday struggles. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It has testified to me that through the Prophet Joseph Smith, the original church of Christ is fully restored once again on the earth today. President Monson is God's living prophet. I am thankful mostly that the gospel Jesus Christ allows families to be together forever.

How I live my faith

I attend my young single adult congregation weekly. Its starts at 1 pm, thank goodness! Its great to worship with people my own age, with similar goals and challenges in life. I find it very empowering to have people to counsel with that understand the things that i am going through. I also attend institute at the university campus during breaks in between classes to help me stop for an hour in my busy school schedule and focus on the things of the Spirit. I love it! Its a wonderful opportunity to find my future wife:)
