Hi I'm Luke Green

I've lived in Bakersfield, California all my life. I'm about to leave on a mission for the church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Before my mission, I attended one year of college at my local university. I'm an engineering major and previously a mathematics major. I have junior standing, because of the AP credits I received through my high school classes. I graduated in the top ten of my high school class. I've played the violin for seven years and the viola for the last four years. I also played tennis and football on my high school teams. I was a boy scout growing up and earned the eagle scout rank. I have gone to the lds church since I was a kid, and have participated in lots of athletic and acting activities. I generally enjoy keeping my life full of activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because the world only makes sense through the teachings of the scriptures. I can not understand our existence without God looking over us. As a learn through my studies at how marvelous our universe is, my belief in our creator is clarified. I am a Mormon, because I feel the difference in my life when I follow what Christ directs through the leaders and teachers of the church. I see how lost those without the knowledge of the gospel are, as they struggle through life without the peace and direction I have. I am a Mormon, because I have found the truth. When you find the truth, you want it in your life and that is what I have done.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. As I interact with those around my, I remember their importance in the eyes of God. As I have prepared for the time of my missionary service to start, I have worked with the missionaries in our community as often as their schedule allowed; we taught the gospel, learned about the people we visited, and served them. As the secretary for our men's group at church and as a worker in our churches nursery, I have served and enjoyed learning more about Christ's teaching. I have enjoyed the more physical social-gatherings such as basketball and scouting trips with others who are working with the same goals as me. I live my faith by representing the lord in my daily actions.
