Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in Bethel Alaska. I loved wrestling in high school and now im serving a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to exercise. I am a wrestler and I enjoy most of the exercises that prepare me for wrestling. I would rather run outside than on a treadmill. I enjoy riding my four-wheeler. I also enjoy playing video games so its kind of difficult satifying all of my hobbies and interests. I am a high school graguate and hope to some day wrestle in college. After i graduated high school i worked to save money for my mission. And now im serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born of goodly parents. Both of my parents were converted before my birth. I was baptized when i was 8 years old. I loved going to church to see my friends and to see everybody else. When I was old enough to decide why I was really going to church I realized that everything I was learning in primary class was true. I felt God's love for me every time I went to church. I had always enjoyed the missionaries coming over to eat and talking to them. And when my brother left for his mission, there was no doubt in my mind that I was serving a mission. I continue to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I know its true and I want the blessings that come from following Christ.

How I live my faith

After winter I help out with the branch to clean up the area around the chapel. I was assigned to go hometeaching with another member to teach them something about the gospel and to strengthen relationships.
