Hi I'm Eli Clark

I grew up in Idaho. I'm serving in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love scouting! I have been involved in the the Boy Scouts of America for over 12 years. I am an Eagle scout with 11 palms and I particularly enjoy working with the Cub Scouts. I am currently serving a mission for the LDS church in the Midwest. I look forward to studying business and working towards my MBA when I return from serving the Lord on my mission. I like music a lot. I played the trombone at a collegiate level for a few years before leaving on my mission. In addition I love playing the cello and pretty much all genres of music. I was also heavily involved with theater before I left for the Midwest and I worked as a stage manager for several shows and did some acting as well.

Why I am a Mormon

My grandparents were converts to the church and I am so grateful that they decided to be baptized! It has been a tremendous blessing in my life to see their faith and their example. Whether you are the only member in your family or all of your relatives are members everyone of us has to have our own conversion to the gospel. My conversion has taken place over several years as I've prayerfully sought to find God in my life. I know that as we all faithfully and humbly seek to find answers to our questions that God will bless us with the answers and enlighten our minds.

How I live my faith

I work with the Webelos in our wards Cub Scout unit, and I regularly assist the Boy Scouts throughout our area. I organize events with the youth in our church which allows me to share my testimony through service and my example to others. My family makes it a priority to regularly serve others. A lot of times its as simple as mowing the neighbors yard or giving someone a smile. But we also like to chop down trees or volunteer at the local food pantry.
