Hi I'm Zane Veater

I grew up in a tiny town in California. I'm a goofball who loves sports, music, animals, and the Lord. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm serving the Lord currently. I'm just a goofy kid who loves the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I am all about that family life, sports, dance parties, making new friends, and indie music. But right now I've given all that up for two years to serve the people here in the Salem Oregon mission! And eventually the people of Argentina as well! I just love to have fun basically. I'm here to serve by loving and helping everyone and anyone I meet to come unto their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I love my family and friends and I'm fiercely loyal to them. I love this Gospel and I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of God on the Earth today!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was raised by extremely faithful parents who always made sure we went to all of our meetings, read our scriptures and said our prayers morning and night. However, they did not spoon-feed us. They made sure that we had a choice. They would explain to us why church was good, but especially once my sisters and I we were old enough to decide things for ourselves, they let us make our own choices. For this reason, I have developed an extremely strong testimony of the truthfulness of this church and of the divinity behind it's function. I know that Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father live and love me. I know that Jesus Christ came to this earth and that truly suffered and died for my sins. I know that through this atonement I can be cleansed and forgiven completely of my sins and transgressions. I know that we are all children of our Heavenly Father and I know that He loves us and wants nothing more than for us to return to live with Him. I know that this church is the true church and I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it testifies of Christ. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now? I'm serving a two-year mission for my church in the Salem Oregon mission and I'll be here for as long as He sees fit. I was originally called to serve in Mendoza Argentina, but the Lord puts us where he knows we need to be. I am serving my heart out to bring others to know Christ and feel the wonderful happiness that His Gospel brings!! I have felt that happiness in my life. How can I possibly keep myself from sharing that happiness with others?! When not a full time missionary, I will simply live the Gospel and hope that others see my example and want to know more!
