Hi I'm Mitchell Barr

I enjoy being outside. Love basketball and being with my family. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a typical kid from California. I love anything to do with the ocean and the beach. I spent most of my childhood and teenage years at the beach doing anything you can imagine. Besides the beach, i love to play sports. I love soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, but mostly basketball. I have been playing basketball since before i can remember. And although i am not the best, i am always down to play. I love playing, watching, researching, and talking about basketball. I also love eating, sleeping, and just being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the church. When i was around 10 years old the Prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley, issued a challenge to read the whole Book of Mormon by the end of the year. I knew that at some point in my life i would need to know if the church was true for myself. So i decided to take his challenge, and read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it was true. By the end of the year i had a very strong testimony that the Book of Mormon was true. Because of my testimony that the Book of Mormon was a true book of God, i also came to the conclusion that this church was true as well. I am a Mormon because i know by living my life the way the church directs, i can one day return to my Heavenly Father again, and be with Him and my family forever.

How I live my faith

Right now i am serving as a full time missionary for the church. I am currently serving in the Las Vegas, Nevada mission. I love teaching people more about what we believe and how the gospel can help them in their own lives.
