Hi I'm Ryan Martinez

I grew up with music all around me. I'm an avid student and love learning. I'm leaving on my mission soon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old, and I am about to leave on a mission. I have spent much of my life to this point learning. I love learning, in all areas, as a result, I am a star student in a very rigorous college-level program in my school. In addition, I have spent much of my life immersed in music. From the time that i was a baby, my family has always loved music, I feel that music is a great way to convey messages, and I like to write song lyrics to get my messages out.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger, it was hard to stay active, to say younger, naturally sounds weird from me, at only 18, most people see me as really young anyway, but that's one thing I love about this church, the youth are so involved, we are given rights, powers, and responsibilities that are difficult to comprehend, and right now, I am preparing to go serve a mission. It is difficult for some people to understand how young men and women can leave their lives for a mission, but I was converted by missionaries, I was reactivated by missionaries, and I owe so much to them, that I am extremely excited to go serve a mission myself.

How I live my faith

I have spent the last 4 years, in which I have been an active member as a part of the youth program in my area. As a part of this program, i have made dozens of friends and have helped convert or activate a number of individuals. Now, I am preparing to serve a full-time mission, in which I will teach my beliefs to people, and share with them the messages of the gospel, and of Jesus Christ's love.
