Hi I'm Bryan

I live in Camas, Washington. I have been called to serve in the Cambodia, Phnom Penh mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first semester of college at BYU- Idaho. While there, I received my mission call to serve in the Cambodia, Phnom Penh mission! I am so excited, and have starter learning the language (Khmer). Some of my hobbies include basketball, drawing, reading, writing, and music! I love writing music, and that's something that will always be at least a hobby for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the gospel. I think that a lot of people who were born into the gospel can easily forget how life changing it is, including me. It's easy to just be a part of the Church because it's a comfortable lifestyle surrounded by really nice people. However, for the past few years, I've really learned to appreciate what I have. I don't want to be a person who believes a certain way just because that's what they were told to believe when they were a kid. I've learned to ask questions about my religion to develop understanding, and then apply that knowledge. I know this church is true. The simple truths it has to offer really are life changing. I've seen it change me, and I can't wait to share this gospel with others and see it change their lives too.

How I live my faith

Without my faith, I can't even imagine how difficult life would be. I try my hardest to live my faith every day. But of course, like everyone else, I mess up. A lot. That is one reason that the Church is so important to me- because it helps me get back on track, no matter how far I fall away. The Church helps me forget about myself. It's so easy to get caught up in your own problems, and it can be hard to remember that focusing on others can help with your own problems. My faith serves as a constant reminder to keep my perspective in check.
