Hi I'm Ryan Bushman

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi my name is Ryan Bushman. I am a musician and have been learning to play the piano and have studied music theory since the age of 7. I was born in a family that was already apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have lived this gospel and have gained a testimony of its truth. I have been called to serve a mission in Belém Brazil. I will dedicate two years of my life to serve and teach the people of Brazil. I have chosen to accept this call because I know this church is true, and I want to share with others the happiness that I have been blessed with, in hopes that they may wish to accept the Saviors call to Baptism. I am so grateful for the church and for my Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ; they have blessed my life beyond measure and I cannot wait to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I have read the Book of Mormon. I have prayed to my Father in Heaven and asked him whether the Church and the Book of Mormon is true. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that it is the one and only true Church on the Earth. I do not have a doubt in my mind that this is the true church. I continue to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and am blessed by it every day. Through daily scripture study and prayer, I am taught by the words of God. I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, that if someone reads the Book of Mormon, and asks God sincerely, knowing that they can receive an answer, that they too can find out for themselves the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an active participant in my ward and living the principles which Christ taught. I go to church every Sunday, I am a home teacher in which I serve and teach families in my ward once a month, I have held positions of authority within my age group and have had the opportunity to serve my peers. I have been called to serve a mission and am eager to do so.
