Hi I'm Ryan Zelenski

i am a missionary in the Nevada Las Vegas mission. i love sports and just having a good time. I'm a mormon

About Me

I was raised the last of five kids. I grew up with parents who were converts to the church of Jesus Christ, but i never really applied any of the teachings of the church into my life. Growing up i loved playing sports and just being active out side. when i get the chance to relax i like to read. when i was 18 i started searching after God in my life for the first time. after searching for God within different religions i finally read the book of Mormon through encouragement from somebody at church. For the first time i truly felt that i was talking to God. i decided soon after to serve a mission and am now in Nevada on a mission. my testimony of the savior and of the truthfulness of this work has been strengthened. growing up just as a normal kid in the world i kn ow that everybody can receive a witness that God lives and is mindful of everyone of us, And that he has restored his authority and also his church through living men who are special witnesses of God. God does not make men to go to church. He makes church so that men can know how to receive a remission of sins and follow their savior. This church is the one that God has re-established and leads it today through a prophet just as he did before.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i have studied, pondered and prayed for many days about God. i have learned that he lives and that that is the only thing that truly matters. i am Mormon because he has told me through much studying, pondering and praying that this is the only place to have a fullness of his teachings and that has his proper authority to do so.

How I live my faith

living my faith is just who i am. everyone lives how he or she believes. you can see the true nature of people by the way they act and treat other people. i live my faith everyday by being who I am, and trying everyday to be better. currently I am serving a two year mission as a representative of Jesus Christ. everyday i read the scriptures pray and look for opportunities to find people who don't have this that they may experience the blessings that come from making promises with God under his organization which is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Ryan Zelenski
One of the greatest thing about the scriptures is that they give us answers to life's hardest questions. it is like getting a cheat sheet on what we need to do in life to find happiness for now and eternity. just like every other cheat sheet though if you don't study it and apply it to your test (life) then it is being wasted and it wont do anything for you. i have found many answers in the scriptures to questions that nobody else could answer, simply because they are the words of God and give you the peace you need.
