Hi I'm Ryan

I was born and raised in Utah. I love music and the outdoors, I'm preparing to serve a mission in Spain. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving as a full time missionary in Madrid Spain. I love spending time with my family. My paradise is in the woods hunting with my dad. I also love fishing and camping. I love to play piano and singing. I would die without music. I am planning on attending college when I return from my mission. I have now lived in Madrid, Las Palmas, and Pontevedra. My favorite thing to do everyday is walk the streets spreading the joy of the gospel! I love Piano Guys and Pancakes. I also enjoy a good debate!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know that it is the true church on earth. Restored through Joseph Smith. Because I know that it is Jesus Christ's church. I know that when Joseph Smith was only 14, he saw Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. Jesus did suffer for our sins because he loved us. He died on the cross so that we could live with him again. I know that if I do the things Christ has asked me to do, not only will I have a better mortal life, but I will be able to become like my Father in Heaven. I know without a doubt that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet. He receives direction from Heavenly Father. I know that by being a faithful member of this church that my family will be together forever. These truths are the reason why I am a member.

How I live my faith

The biggest way right now that I am living my faith is by willingly giving up two years of my life to serve my Lord. I make sure not to slack even a little in keeping the Commandments. I currently serve as a Stake Youth Committee member where I and other kids my age plan events for the youth of my area. I go hometeaching with my companion every month.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I am serving as a missionary right now in the Madrid Spain mission, and I love being asked this question. I think you can sum the whole reason up into one word, LOVE! I have decided to come out here for two years because I honestly love the people here. Th gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me so much happiness and peace, it is the reason I am who I am today. "Because I have been given much I too must give." I had the luck to know the truth from a small age, but now I want others to be able to feel this same love, comfort, and joy that I've been blessed with! Really our message is how to find happiness and help others find it, is there anything better? Show more Show less
