Hi I'm Ryan Sams

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I am Ryan. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for almost two years now. I have recently received my mission call and I will be serving in the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo West Mission. I will be reporting to the Provo Missionary Training Center on 16 May 2012. I am currently a student in a Christian University and finished my last semester before I go out and serve my 2 year mission. I will come back to school upon the completion of my mission to finish up a double major in International Business and Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that the Church is true. Life is much better and my grades went up a lot since I have been a member of the Church. For a few years I was trying to find the right church for me to be a part of and I always looked at the verse in James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and unbraideth not; and it shall be given him."

How I live my faith

I participate in my community by performing service for others. I have been called as a ward missionary which means I help out the full time elders and teach new members the "new member lessons" which are the lessons you will learn before you get baptized. I love home teaching it is my favorite part of each month and I love to share a lesson and then give my testimony of the Church and of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.
