Hi I'm Ryan

I'm a band geek, I'm a scuba diver, I love ASL, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ryan, a proud member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I live in Mesa, Arizona, and am in the Emerald Bay Ward of the Gilbert Val Vista Stake. I have been called to the New York, New York North Mission as an American Sign Language missionary, reporting to the Provo Missionary Training Center on July 9, 2014. I will spend the next two years teaching the people of New York the gospel through a variety of means. I enjoy Scuba Diving, coin collecting, and helping my friends with school and other matters. I am musically talented, as I can play several brass instruments, and love to serve any way I can. I plan to enroll at Brigham Young University when I return from my mission, and plan to study Accounting and Finance. I know that work, faith, and diligence will help me in my aims. I am a believer in the future, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith, and have grown to learn about and love this church throughout my life. Three of my four grandparents are converts, and their decision to accept the restored gospel has allowed me to enjoy it throughout my life. I know that the doctrines of this church are true, and that the Book of Mormon is a valid and true book. I have felt joy and happiness that only being part of this church can bring. I only wish to share this joy with others, as there are many who search for it, but haven't yet found it.

How I live my faith

I try to share the joy that this church has brought me with those who know it not. I am always ready and eager to answer questions and clear up ambiguity and misconceptions others have about the church. I only want others to know the truth of what I know and believe.
