Hi I'm Zach

I'm a Missionary serving in the Michigan, Lansing Mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Missionary serving in the State of Michigan. I've served for 16 months now, and have been in Grand Rapids, Fremont, Jonesville, Sturgis, and now Paw Paw Areas. I love the people I've come in contact with on my mission and am thankful to the Lord for helping my own testimony to be strengthened as I help others find Jesus Christ in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family with parents who believed in the LDS church but as I have grown and watched them and gained testimony by their example, I know , without a doubt that the church is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God and that through Him was able to restore the true church to this earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book sent to us through Heavenly Father and that the teachings in it were meant for our day. I know that Christ suffered for our sins and that through Him and the atonement, we can be with Him and our Heavenly Father again one day. I know that I am a Child of God and that through the power of the priesthood, that we can be sealed to our families for all eternity and live in Heavenly Father's presence again.

How I live my faith

Everyday I get to go out and do nothing but teach and serve others. Whether it's at a doorstep, in a family room, or a church, I get to share how Jesus Christ and his Atonement have helped me in my life and how the Book of Mormon can further their own testimony as well. It is a huge blessing to be able to see God bless other's as they willingly do what He has asked.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

I have always been told how important it is to serve a Mission, but at the same time it is something I know I am not forced to do. This is something that has been my choice, and being obedient to the Lord in doing so strengthens my testimony even more. I know that through all the experience I have gained on this mission that I am blessed in my life for doing as the Lord has asked us. Not only have I received blessings for this, but my family back home as well. Show more Show less
