Hi I'm Mark Cross

I grew up in Frederick, Maryland. I love to teach people in American Sign Language. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobby is wrestling and I joined wrestling when I was four years old and also I got 5th place for Deaf Olympic. Also my another hobby is remodeling kitchen and bathroom because it is never getting bored. I love to teach American Sign Language (ASL) to people who want to learn and social with people. I went to Rochester Institute of Technology in two years for Engineering Major but not anymore.

Why I am a Mormon

In one year ago, I wasn't Mormon and never want to know about the Latter-day Saints because I though this religious was ridiculous. However I met the missionaries at Sonic fast food and they offered me for hang out for activities like soccer. So, I involved the missionaries' activity and started to curious about what their believes. Then I went to their church and I converted in few months later. Why I am a Mormon? I read 1Nephi 11 about Lehi looked at the tree for the future of our Savior Jesus Christ. Also the Bible has a scripture about baptize for the dead and the LDS people active like that but the general Christian people never do that... I'm glad that I know this church is truth and Jesus Christ sets up His church again.

How I live my faith

I participate in ASL branch and I got few callings for leading and hometeaching. Sometime I teach in priesthood group. I read scriptures often because it keep me have a faith in our God. Also my favorite scripture is Ether 12:27 about the lord gives unto men weakness and that they may be humble. Make they become a stronger and beat their weakness.
