Hi I'm John (Mark) Wiser

I grew up in Utah, I compete in bodybuilding, I have been called to serve in the Ecuador, Guayaquil South mission, and I'm Mormon.

About Me

I love my family. I love hanging out with friends, going to rock and metal concerts, and going to the gym. I compete in men's physique bodybuilding for the NPC and the NGA. I'm proud of my decent success in placing in my two shows this year. I got 2nd place in the NGA and 2nd and 3rd in my NPC classes. I love going hunting, shooting, camping, and hiking. I recently graduated from High School. I used to wrestle and run cross country. Some goals that I have set for myself are joining the Army; (specifically the Ranger Battalion and eventually the Green Berets), I'd like to continue to compete in bodybuilding when I return from my mission, I would love to get married in the temple and have a family. I'm serving a mission in Guayaquil, Ecuador in the south mission. I hope to serve God and the people in Ecuador with the best of my ability. I love the gospel and my brother and savior, Jesus Christ, and my Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a young active church going LDS family. My parents have taught me about the Book of Mormon and all of the stories to help me understand the plan that God has set for us. I have grown throughout my life in my testimony and my happiness and gratefulness for the gospel and my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have recently been ordained an Elder in my ward here in Bountiful. It's not the same as young men because everyone is older and much more mature. I'm happy that I get to help serve my neighbors and friends and fellow wards members. I've been blessed with so many opportunities and I try to take advantage of that.
