Hi I'm Ryan Zacchilli

I'm a San Diegan who pole vaults and plays water polo and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to do anything active that tests my abilities and helps me improve. I pole vault, play water polo, surf, skimboard, mountain bike, etc. I enjoy watching movies and spending time with my family. I am an Eagle scout and have forgotten most of my knots. I can play any instrument, but not very well. What I love to play most and have practiced the most is the piano. As of now, most of those things are on hold because I am serving a mission in the Montana Billings Mission. I love being out here serving the Lord. It has been a process of growth that came from some of my hardest trials. I look forward to see what else the Lord has in store for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Personally I grew up in the church and if I had a choice I would have never wanted it any other way. My conversion has progressed since I joined primary and is still continuing as it will for the rest of my life. I have learned for myself that this church is true the same way Joseph did when he was a young man. I knelt down before my father in heaven and prayed with all of my heart, might, mind, and strength. It didn't stop there though. I know that this is truly Christ's church because it has been changing me for the better since day one. I am becoming the son that my Heavenly Father wants me to be and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to improve each day. I am also living it by consecrating my time, gifts and ablities to help the Lord further the work of Salvation among his children.
