Hi I'm Ryan Anderson

I live and grew up in Arizona. I haven't done too many exciting things in my life so far. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an 18 year old missionary in the MTC in Provo, Utah heading over to München in the next few weeks. I was born and raised in Arizona and have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

As I said earlier I was born into the church. I think many people believe that being born into the church instantly means that you believe in the church and have a powerful belief in all of the principles of the church, but they would be wrong. It has been through many trials that I have been able to gain a testimony that the church is true. I think the biggest hel in my life that has helped me to stay with the church are the wonderful people that I have grown up with, whether its been my family or my friends. They have all been strong people that I wished to emulate and which has made me want to go out on a mission and spread the gospel, so that those who hear the message can be strong for their family or their friends.

How I live my faith

Before I left for my mission, I was the assistant sunday school teacher for the 10-11 year old boys for about 6 months. It was a blast being able to help such young kids stregnthen their testimony in the church that has just began to sprout. Now, as previously mentioned, I have been called as a missionary to serve in the Alpine German-Speaking mission which covers Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Northern Italy, and Lichtenstein.
