Hi I'm Ryan Stringfellow

I am from Bountiful Utah. I am currently serving an LDS Mission. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I come from an awesome family and I am the oldest of three children. I graduated from Bountiful High School in the year 2014 where I was a part of the school's football and baseball teams. My favorite High School memory was being a part of the 2014 state championship baseball team. Baseball is my number one and you can find me any day out on the diamond. Right now I am currently serving a mission for the LDS church in the Madagascar Antananarivo Mission and I am speaking the Malagasy Language. I love my mission and I love the Malagasy people. I plan on continuing my education after my mission at Utah Valley University. I'm still not quite sure what I want to study but I have an interest in Physical Therapy. Currently I am 19 years old.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found nothing but pure joy in this faith. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the one and only thing in this life that can bring us eternal happiness. I teach this concept everyday in my mission and I am constantly seeing lives change because of it. I know that only through the gospel of Jesus Christ we can live up to the potential that our Heavenly Father has for us. This gospel is meant to bring people unto Christ and that is the main reason of why I'm a Mormon. I want to become closer to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is very important to me. Being a part of an LDS mission has really opened my eyes to how faith impacts my life. I rely on my faith everyday to teach people what I know to be true. Faith can sometimes be a hard thing to find but I do know that when the right faith is found it can bring endless happiness. I try to help people everyday that need that real happiness in their lives. I talk to everyone I meet about my faith with the goal in mind to bring them eternal happiness. I know that through faith we can all find happiness in this life and in the life to come.
