Hi I'm Zachary Williams

I grew up in Las Vegas. I am currently serving a mission for the church in the Texas Houston East mission.

About Me

My whole life I have lived in Las Vegas. It is the greatest city in the world. I love playing sports, anything that gets your adrenaline pumping, eating good food, and making trouble with family and friends. Im a BYU cougar through and through! Im currently taking a little break from the "Y" to serve as a missionary in Texas as a Spanish missionary, which has been the greatest blessing for my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a great family who lives the standards of the church. I have not had many trials, nor have i had to know what it feels like to not be a member; but I have also had to be converted to this gospel. I can remember attending youth camps as a teenager that were designed to strengthen my testimony. One of my leaders told us about the struggles he had to overcome, and he told me that our Savior is the only way he overcame them. He told us all to learn about our Savior and develop a strong bond with him through scripture and prayer. I took that challenge and really discovered my own testimony. I know that this church is the only true church upon the earth, and that it is set up by our Savior Jesus Christ in the same manner as it was when he walked the earth. I have a testimony that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I have had the opportunity of visiting many of the places where he walked, and I know that he was a man of God. He restored this church, and saw our Heavenly Father and Savior in the Sacred Grove. I know that this church allows me to be sealed to my family for all eternity, and that is the greatest comfort of all. This church is true. I know that it is the desire of our Father in Heaven for all to accept and join.

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith the best way I know how, by serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am serving a mission because I know it is what my Heavenly Father wants me to do. I know that this is the true church with all of my heart, and I am so grateful that i get to share that joy with others. While in college, I had the opportunity to lead other boys my age that all have the priesthood of God. I was able to exercise that priesthood by giving blessings, and being active in my student ward.
