Hi I'm Elder Clark

I'm a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love Jesus Christ and I am serving a mission in Oregon. :)

About Me

I've been Mormon my whole life. I love music, and I love Jesus Christ. I'm on a mission in the Oregon Eugene Mission now, but when I get back I hope to start my career as a performing/recording artist. I want to make good, clean music that people can listen to. Music that they can enjoy while still being able to feel the Spirit.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i truly believe in all of His principles and doctrine. I believe that He gives us commandments and guidelines to follow because he wants us at our best. He wants us to be happy. Truly happy. That's one thing that makes me want to convert others to my religion. Being Mormon seems to make everyone genuinely happy. I like happy people. So I am going out to give that happiness to others.

How I live my faith

I strive to live by the example of Jesus Christ. He died for me and suffered so much pain for me. It is the least I can do to serve a mission and give the Savior two years of my life. I love Him. I am devoting my life to serving Him, because I know that's all he asks of me.

What is being a Mormon like?

Elder Clark
A lot of people say that it must suck to be Mormon because of all of the rules. To me, they're not rules. They are guidelines to make our lives better and much, much happier. They say that they would be much happier without all the rules, but if u look at righteous Mormons in general. Don't they all seem pretty dang happy? I know I am. It's just like being a normal person, being a Mormon. I enjoy it and it makes me feel like I am worth something. It can do that for you, too. Show more Show less

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Elder Clark
God gave us a mortal body and an immortal spirit. Together they form our soul. To me, we try to keep our body healthy because it is a sacred gift from God and that alone should be enough to want to take care of it. If we mess up our body, it has an effect on our spirit. We want to keep out harmful substances and things like drugs and alcohol. It will make you happy to abide by this guideline. Show more Show less
