Hi I'm Zac

I have grown up in Draper Utah and I am serving a LDS Mission in New York City Spanish speaking, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and I have played the game of soccer my entire life. I recently just finished a Fall semester at Southern Virginia University where I played soccer also. Just like I have lived soccer I also live my religion of being an member of the LDS church. I am about to embark on an LDS Mission to New York on January 23. I have a wonderful family of 5 who I love and Cherish dearly. I also like to play basketball and football and basically any other recreational sport. I believe schooling is a very crucial part to my success as i get older and I plan on finishing college.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness and joy this gospel brings to my life. There is nothing else that brings me more true happiness than living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have felt my saviors love as I have undergone the hard but needed process of repentance and I have become clean through the Atonement of Christ. This has brought me so much lasting happiness, more than any other worldly thing that tries to pull my attention. In this church we believe that families can live forever and I am so happy to have this knowledge. Loved ones have passed away but I know they are in a better place and that I will see them again. I love my family very much and I am so happy that our home is a place of peace and love. I am a Mormon and this Gospel is true. Jesus Christ does live and he is our older brother. I hope that all may be able to receive of this happiness and great gospel so that their lives may be blessed beyond measure as mine has. These blessings have come in many different ways and things but I know that My heavenly father loves me and wants me to return to him.

How I live my faith

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is an intricate part of my life and I am fully committed to living it and by its standards. As I am of age to go on an LDS mission i will be doing so very soon. This is how I will participate in this church for the next two years serving the people of NYC. This Church is all about service and I am very happy to serve others in my community and help any way I can.

In whom should we have faith?

We must have faith in Jesus Christ. He is our Savior and Redeemer and we owe all we have to him. To have faith in him is to trust him and know that he will be there to help us and make up for our short comings after we have done all that we can. Show more Show less
