Hi I'm Rhett Martin

I grew up in Arizona. I have four brothers. I'm preparing to serve a full time mission in Argentina. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a home of all boys, plus my mom. My family is a huge part of my life and I love all of them. I have one older brother and two younger brothers. My older brother is one of my best friends and greatest examples. He served a full time mission, which has furthered my resolve to do the same. I have been called to serve in Argentina and I'm so excited to serve my brothers and sisters in that country. I graduated from high school in 2012. I grew up playing all kinds of sports, but in High School I did Track and Field. I like learning about the why and how things work. Upon completion of my mission in Argentina, I plan on going to school to eventually become a Pediatric Surgeon. I haven't decided yet what I want to specialize in. I love the church

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that what this church proclaims is the truth. I have discovered this for myself through prayer and study. I know that Jesus is the Christ. He is my brother and Savior. My Redeemer. He is the reason that I am on this Earth and the reason that I can return to my Heavenly Father and be like him. I love him and owe everything to him. Joseph Smith restored the Lord's true church to this Earth, after the order that it was first established during the time Jesus Christ lived on the Earth. Joseph Smith was given the authority to do this, the Priesthood was restored to the Earth through him. The Book of Mormon is the Word of God, a record of the people that lived in the America's and their dealings. A record of Christ coming to them and the things that he taught them. We have a Prophet on the Earth today. This man is Thomas S. Monson. He speaks for God and receives modern revelation that is relevant to all inhabitants of the Earth. Through this church families can be sealed because of Priesthood authority and can be together forever. And because of the Atonement of our oldrer brother, even Jesus Christ, we can dwell with God and be like Him. I know this to be true with every fiber of my being. I cannot and will not deny the truth that has been revealed to me. God is there, he knows and hears us. Find the truth, and hold to it.

How I live my faith

Church shapes how I live my life, so naturally the individuals that I interact with will become aware of my faith. I enjoy attending church with my family. I have only had a few church callings since graduating high school, but I have been able to serve the youth of my ward. I also have had the opportunity to be a home teacher with one of my former youth leaders. I feel like I have learned more in this calling than the people I have the opportunity to serve.
