Hi I'm Zach

I am a missionary in N.O.M. I am a bit of a nerd. I'm I Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary in the Nebraska Omaha Mission. I love to learn new things and try to understand how things work around me. I enjoy digital media like photoshop and flash animating. I don't like to take other peoples word, but to figure things out myself. In my free time I love to play video game and play guitar. I have a small group of friends, but they are extremely close to me. I only have one brother, but he is one of my best friends, despite him being 5 years younger than me.

Why I am a Mormon

For the first part of my life, I just was a member of the chruch because I was born into it and all my friends were members, so there was no real reason to chanch. As I grew older, I began to realize I couldn't rely on others testimonies. The biggest thing that helped me to learn for myself that the church realy is Christ's own church was studying the Book of Mormon. When I actualy took the challange in the book of mormon to "ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true" I was able to feel the power of the Holy Ghost tell me that this is where I need to be. As I have made it my goal to personaly develope my relationship with my Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ, my life has been changed forever. I can now say that I know Christ is my Savior and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His church.

How I live my faith

Because of the Christ's Atonement, His suffering in the garden and on the cross, I have the ability to repent and overcome my sins. I am far from perfect, but because of my Savior I am trying every day to improve. Each day I try to asses myself and ask my Father in Heaven for frogivness for my sins and help to be better. As I do this, I am made stronger through Christ. In my day to day life, I try to live acording to God's commandments. Even though many people may see this as a restriction, it actualy is a major blessing. When God gives commandments, they are for our own protection. Sometimes dissobeying my seem like the better option, but as I obey I am able to aviod phisical and spiritual danger. Besides that, I just try to be like Christ. I try to love people and care for them, make the world a better place and follow the will of my father. It isn't always easy, but I can alway count on having help when I need it, and that gives me the strenth to go on.
