Hi I'm Ryan Hausenfluck

I am a convert of the church. I follow and believe in Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi my name is Ryan. I'm currently serving a mission in the New York New York North mission. I'm going to school right now with nothing in particular right now. I hope that during my mission I can figure out what I want to do with my life. I hope it has something to do with sports because I love watching sports and my favorite sport is baseball. I love to hang out with my family and friends. I view the people that are closest to me to be the biggest blessings of my life. I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is because I knew there was something more out there. I knew that I was searching for something to help calm and make my soul happy again. I was lost and wanted to find my way back again. I wanted to make myself better as a person and gain a relationship with my Savior again. I have come really far from where I have started. I was baptized as a member of the church on May 19th, 2012 by one of my closest friends. I have been called to serve on a mission one year after my baptism. There have been many hardships in my life that I have been able to overcome and I know the only reason I have been able to overcome them is through my faith in Jesus Christ. I know Savior uplifts me every time when I'm down or have fallen. I have faith in Christ that He will lead and guide me to where He wants me to go in life. All the greatest things in my life have come through being a member of Christ's church. I know that I will be able to continually grow my faith and testimony of Christ's gospel. I know He loves me and that He wants the best for me. I will continue to strive through the remainder of my days to be one of His servants and always be willing to serve Him in anything He might ask of me.

How I live my faith

Ways that I live my faith is by reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it with Heavenly Father. I know that you have to continually grow your testimony about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One of my favorite things to do in life is learning how to be more like Christ and learning principles and doctrines about the gospel. I love applying the teachings of Christ in my life because it brings me so much happiness. Another way I live my faith is that soon I will be going out and serving a mission for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I'm so excited to go out and serve the Lord for two years. I can't wait to go out and help others find Christ and to make Him a focal point in their lives. If I can do this for people then I know I came show them the many blessings that Christ and Heavenly Father give to us in this life.
