Hi I'm Mitchell

Im an artist. I love hikes. I am serving a two year mission in Northern California, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love adventures, photography, surfing, hiking, dancing, studying, learning, teaching, and serving. I am so grateful to be serving a mission becuase of the many opportunities the Lord puts before me to learn and grow while I am helping others come unto him. After I finish my two year mission I will be attending college. I cant wait to start learning more! I pick things up pretty easy so ive been involved in a lot. Ive done well in academics, science and mathematics being my favorite. I have also done sports, drama, and served in leadership roles throughout many programs. But most of all, I love to spend time with my family. Whether its out on the lake, going for walks, or family movie night we love to be together and to have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I actively participated in youth group every wednesday and attended church each sunday growing up. But it didnt make much of a difference until I decided that I was the one that wanted to go. My senior year of high school I made the choice to go to my seminary class each morning without having to be encouraged by others. While it took time, I began to take more advantage of the class itself. I took the reading assignments more seriously, I focused in class, and I enjoyed going. This led up to graduation and a choice of "Is this what I really want?" I had many colleges to choose from or to choose to go on a two year mission for the Lord. Through many trials I faced throughout life I definitely knew God answered prayers. So I turned to him and asked. He led me to people who help me overcome my fears and my set backs and with each wall I climbed my faith grew. My testimony developed and I received my answer. That I needed to serve a mission. I am so grateful for each opportunity and challenge my Heavenly Father gave to me because it helped me become who He needed me to be. I knew he loved me, and I know he loves all his children just the same. That is what I wanted to share and preach along with the truth of the Restoration. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, I know Gods priesthood authority has been restored, and I know that this is the church of Jesus Christ. That is why I am a Mormon. And I love it!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a two year mission in Northern California. I serve as a full time missionary in each congregation I am assigned to. I help by teaching and serving those in the community to help share the Light of Christ. I try to use my talents with art to help the congregation when it comes to decorations or posters advertising the parties or activities.
