Hi I'm Joseph Parke

I grew up on my family ranch in Montana, and I am currently serving my mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the small town of Drummond, Montana on my family ranch. I love to work there alongside my Grandpa, Dad and brother. I like running the equipment and working with the livestock. I also enjoy hunting and fishing and camping, and about anything else you can do outdoors. I also love to play sports and have received many honors for basketball in High School. In Boy Scouts I was able to complete my Eagle Scout project as well. I graduated from Drummond High school in 2015, and I am now currently serving my mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I love being a missionary and sharing the gospel with people. I couldn't be doing anything better.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church as the second kid in my family, I was baptized when I turned 8 by my Dad. When I turned 12 I was ordained into the office of a deacon and confirmed into the Arronic Priesthood. As I have grown up I have read the Book of Mormon multiple times and I know without a doubt in my mind that it is the true word of God. I know this church is true and I love it, it has done so much for me in my life and I cant even start to count all the many blessings because of the church. I also love being a missionary in the Pittsburgh area, serving is one of the best things I have ever done. The sacrifice to come out here and leave my family and friends was hard but I know it is worth it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a missionary and sharing the gospel with everyone I can. And I hope as I do this I can help others realize the happiness, peace and hope it can bring into their lives.
