Hi I'm Mark

I was born in Chicago. Leaving soon to serve our brethren and our Lord in Brazil for two years. I am a LDS!

About Me

I'm 19 years old. I love playing b-ball, reading The Bible and The Book of Mormon, and hanging out with friends. I completed a semester of college and am now serving a full time mission for the Lord. I think it's awesome that so many young people of this Church sacrifice 18-24 months for their life to share this gospel with the world. You rarely see that! I have the honor of sharing something that without a doubt of my mind is true. I know this not because any my church leaders have told me or my my parents, but because I sincerely have asked God himself in prayer if this is His church. I promise you all that this IS His church and I invite all you to speak to missionaries to find out for your self. You have everything to gain.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I have had the opportunity to have grown up in this church, I can personally testify that this is the only true church on Earth. I know this not because my leaders or family have told me, but because I have prayed directly to my Heavenly Father and have received a confirmation through the Holy Ghost of it's surety. Reading the Book of Mormon has been a blessing to me. Like The Bible, The Book of Mormon bears witness of Jesus Christ. I know this book is true, I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and restored the true church of God here on Earth through the guidance of our Heavenly Father (God). I choose to follow God's commandments and the teachings of his son Jesus Christ because we can only benefit from being obedient. I have been blessed and have so much joy to know these things. It's never too late to learn for yourself the surety of this church.

How I live my faith

I try my best to be Christ-like whenever I get the chance. I offer help to others and try my best to be meek and humble. Personally, whenever I'm in a tough situation I ask myself the cheesy question of " what would Jesus do? " This simple, but effective, question has helped me strive to be obedient to our loving Heavenly Father.

What is faith?

Have you ever physically seen your heart? Probably not, but you know without a doubt that it is there, even if you haven't seen it. Faith is the same way. Strong faith does not come right away, but comes when we are obedient to Christ's doctrine. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A person develops a testimony, a spiritual witness, when he/she knows something is true. I personally have a testimony that God and Jesus Christ live. Through studying this beautiful doctrine I have come to realize that this church is true. This is an example of my testimony. A testimony comes slowly but when faithful and obedient to commandments, it surely grows. Show more Show less
