Hi I'm Ryan

I'm on my mission in Oakland/San Fransico and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up all over the place. My dad was in the army, so we moved almost every three years. I have three older sisters and i'm the only boy and the youngest. Im the first in my faimly to serve a mission for the church and so far im loving it. I also really love cars, they're my passion. I spend hours in the hot sun just working on them or polishing the chrome. I had a 1970 Pontiac Le Mans and my father has a 57 Chevy Bel Air, and a 69 comaro. I have rebuilt engines and do all kinds of things for my friends cars as well.

Why I am a Mormon

The feelings you get when your at church or with your friends from church are different from anything else you can feel. As people say things like I know I can be with my family forever, and bearing their testimonies, you know you are in the right place. I just get shivers up my spine that tell me it is true. I get that nowhere else. I have been a member all my life so I dont really have a conversion story, but you have to be converted through the little everyday things to really know for yourself if these things are ture. As you look around at the people without this gospel in their lives, they look sad and or angry at the world for all it's done to them. As you look at the people with his gospel, you'll find that their lives are better and their families happier and more together. They're doing the things the Lord expects and they're being blessed for it.

How I live my faith

I'm right now on my mission. I find that reading the sriptures daily really helps my life and I know it can help yours. I meet new people everyday that ask me to help them through their hard times. I tell them I can't help you, but the Lord can. That thourgh reading, prayer,and church your life will get better. The more you live His gospel the more blessings you can receive. I go to church every week to take the sacrament and be forgiven of my sins. I live my life by the conmandments so I can grow closer with God and receive His blessings. I know this church is the true church of God once again restored to the earth and I invite you to find out for yourself by reading the Book of Mormon and, inviting the missionaries into your home. I know as you do you will receive an awnser and find your life getting better in every way.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?
