Hi I'm Zach

I'm a full-time missionary serving in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Kansas kid; I have lived here a majority of my life. I love music--especially since I was a band kid throughout middle school and high school. I have always been a hard-worker, especially when it comes to goals that I have set for myself. Through that determination, I earned straight A's throughout high school. It is when I strive towards those goals that I feel I am most successful. I like to be social, and hang out with my friends. As of right now, I am preparing to serve the Lord in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. I am deeply excited for this opportunity and want to be as successful as I can to make my family, my friends, and my Heavenly Father proud of me.

Why I am a Mormon

I just want to be a good, little, Mormon boy. I have been a member of this church my whole life. Through this Gospel, my parents wanted to instill in me a sense of direction, a glimpse of where I should want my life to be. Although I rode on the coattails of my parents' testimonies for a majority of my young life, there was a point in time when I just could not do that anymore. I have had to learn why this Gospel is true myself. Although I am going in the right direction now, it has not always been easy. Making good decisions is definitely hard, especially in the midst of all the fiery darts that the adversary is throwing our way. Satan's traps lead to sin, heartache, and pain, which of themselves can sometimes prove to be endless and consuming. The real reason that I am member of this Gospel is because I just want to be good, and I want others to know that the power of Christ's Atonement applies to everyone. Whatever you are going through, whatever you have done, and whatever pain you may feel, Jesus Christ felt the same. He wants you to come unto him so that he can help you carry your burdens. You always have someone to turn to when you need help.

How I live my faith

Everything I do and say, I would hope is reflection of how I live my faith. Like I have already said, I am preparing to become a full-time missionary. As a missionary, my purpose will be to "invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end." I, as many other people my age, desire to give two whole years of our lives in order to share the light of Christ's gospel wherever we are called to serve. As for me, I want to help others have the same hope and faith that I do.
