Hi I'm Elder Ryan Christensen

I am currently serving and my Mission in Houston, Texas, and have been out just over 6 months. I am originally from Salem, Utah.

About Me

I love getting out and being active! My hobbies include: mountain biking, hiking, camping, boating - enjoying nature. I enjoy playing basketball, soccer, volleyball, frisbee, and ping pong. I find great joy in eating, and I like to be involved and kept busy.

Why I am a Mormon

I know by following God's plan (which is contained in the Book of Mormon) I will be able to return again to his presence one day and receive eternal life. Because I have this knowledge and I have found that it has brought meaning into my life, I do my best to follow the principles given in order to find maximum joy and happiness in this life. I know the principles taught are true because I have felt the sweet confirmation of the Holy Spirit testify to me that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the Lords Kingdom once again established on the earth. I am and forever will be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I go to great lengths to make my availability one of my greatest abilities. If there is an event or activity happening for the church, you can always plan to find me there, trying my best to ensure those around me feel loved. Also, doing all I can to invite others to come so that they can have their hearts filled with the richness and joy that the Gospel offers as we gather together. And then, afterwords, seeking out those who were unable to attend and express to them my love.
