Hi I'm Marco

I live in American Fork, Utah. I am LDS and about to go on a mission! I've been called to the Houston South mission in Spanish.

About Me

I graduated from High School in 2012, I've also gone to a year of college and almost finished my generals. I love to do anything with sports. My favorite ones are basketball and baseball. I have 2 siblings a brother and a sister, and I am the oldest. I also really like to read and play video games. I have a hard time choosing any favorite books since I've read a lot of good ones. My favorite sports teams are the Utah Jazz and in baseball I really like the Red Sox since Dustin Pedroia is my favorite baseball player. I also really enjoy listening to music. I really like to listen to the band Grouplove and other music that is similiar to that.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon since I was born into the gospel, since both of my parents are members of the church. Honestly it hasn't always been easy since I ran into some of my own problems and my family went through brief moments of inactivity. Thanks to great missionaries and home teachers we were able to return to the church. Then I as got older I realized that I had to develop my own testimony of the gospel and get closer to the Lord for myself. That testimony came through reading The Book of Mormon and through prayer. Thanks to being able to do that for myself, I was able to stay in the church and keep following the Church. I know that this church is true. I know that Christ died for his sins and that we need to use his Atonement in our daily lives so that we can return to live with him one day. I also know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith saw what he saw. I also know that Thomas Monson is called of God and he leads our church through inspiration and with the help of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that our Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us so much, I have been able to see that love in my own life. I know that he listens to and answers our prayers.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite ways to participate in my ward is home teaching. To me it is a great way to meet more people in your ward, and it can make you closer with some of the other ward members. Its also a great way to help people that may not be as strong in the church if you are called as their home teacher since you can befriend them and help them out as much as you can. I know that if home teaching is done well in the ward it helps the ward become closer and stronger. To me that is a great thing to be able to do and help. I know it helped me as well since I learned more about how to be a good friend to people and just let me also learn more about others needs.
