Hi I'm Tristan Ralston

I am a missionary in the Texas Houston South Mission, I am the first of my siblings to go on a mission and I am a Mormon!

About Me

Hi, my name is Tristan. I am the second oldest of four kids, I am currently serving a mission in Texas, and I love serving the lord! My little sister just got her call to the Philippines, and I am more than excited for her!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was raised into the church, my parents taught me and I had to grow my own testimony. I have had many hardships through my life, but through the gospel, I know that I can get through everything the world throws at me. I love the gospel, and I have trust in the Lord. The Lords plans have changed for me quite a lot, and I am fine with that, because it makes me the person the Lord see's me as. I never thought I would serve a mission, but after almost being engaged, I knew that the mission was the right thing to do. I was called to Guatemala, then reassigned to Texas, and through this is was really rough on me, but I know that the Lord puts me where I am needed to go. I love this gospel and the church with all my heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church, serving a mission, and serving the people around me. Service is a major part of my life, whenever I am in the service of my fellow beings, I am in the service of our Lord! I love working with people with special needs, they have a major section in my heart. I also live my faith through playing my violin for others.
