Hi I'm Ryan Johnson

I grew up in Carlsbad California. I am a fisherman by heart and am currently living in the UK and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 19 years old and was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I enjoy All forms of fishing, kayaking, business, reading, and landscaping. I am currently serving aFull time Mission in the United Kingdom and am enjoying every minute of it. Prior to my mission, I served in the San Diego Temple. I also worked at Golden Spoon in Carlsbad. I have to say that I love service. Everything from working at a charity event to doing some yard work for someone, or even handing a customer a cupfull of Chocolate and Vanilla swirl. Whatever the service is they have the same reward. A great big smile across the reciever's face.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when i was young, I went through many challenges and whenever I felt like there is no hope for me, all I had to do was the first thing my teachers taught us to do, Pray. By the time I said "amen" I would have a new found energy and I knew someone was there to help me every step of the way.

How I live my faith

Growing up I always looked for opportunities to help others. I loved being able to make someone smile by doing just a bit of service. My Parents raised me well and always taught me and my older sisters to love others and to help them in any way possiable so thats what I would do. Last year I was given the opportunity to submit my application or ''Papers'' to go and serve a mission. I was called to serve in the England Manchester Mission and I was given the amazing opportunity to be called as a temple worker for the San Diego Temple. So thats what I did. As I prepared to serve a full time mission I worked in what some thought as the ''Princess Castle'' off the five freeway. Through my service there I was able to help others with their family history work, It wasn't too soon that I am out here in the beautiful lands of England. What an amazing country with such historical beauty. I love sharing my faith and helping others see and feel what Jesus Chruist can do for them in their lives. I love helping everyone I come in contact with here wether it be through sharing a lesson, doing some gardening, or even helping someone cross the work. This is how I live my faith.

What is the priesthood?

Ryan Johnson
What is the Priesthood you ask? Well to simply put it the Priesthood Authority is just that. It is God's authority to act in his name. Before Christ was crucified and killed he gave Priesthood Authority (Permission) to his twelve Desciples, by the laying on of hands, to continue to organize and establish his church.
