Hi I'm Elder Ames

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Zach, I come from a family of 5. I live in more of the country part of Missouri. I like to go horseback riding, hunting, shooting guns, Playing Hockey, hanging out with friends and family, and going to church. One day after my mission I wish to get married in the temple and raise a family. I enjoy reading from the book of Mormon and the New Testament. One of the greatest feelings I enjoy is when I go to the temple. I also really enjoy working on vehicles for fun. Its like a big puzzle that I like to take apart and then put back together.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, although I had to gain a testimony for myself. I know that my father in heaven lives and that he loves me. I know that Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of our heavenly father. I know that Joseph Smith translated the book of Mormon from revelation. the only way that anyone will ever know is by reading and praying about it for themselves. One of the biggest things about the gospel, is that it's not a light switch you can turn on and off when you feel like it. It's living the commandments everyday and seeing the blessings that come from it. Anyone can stand there and tell you it's true all day long, but does that make it true? I know I had to find out for myself and I have my answer.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving on a mission, serving in the New Zealand, Wellington mission. from October 5, 2011 to October 2013
