Hi I'm Zachary Purdy

I am a missionary in Utica, New York, I enjoy sports, the great outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played baseball and football in high school and I enjoy sports!I grew up a member and it has been such a blessing to be able to know the truths of God and life from the beginning! I was born in Bakersfield, California and am currently serving a mission in the Utica New York!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because two brave kids decided to devote two years of their lives to bring an instrument in the lords hands and they ended up converting my mom and dad and that has made it so my brother went on a mission and was the first in our family and now I will go on a mission! All because two 19 year old kids decided to have faith in Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. While growing up i was privileged to grow up with this gospel already in my life and what a blessing it has been. As i got older i learned more and more until i graduated high school and a decision was to be made to serve a mission or go to college. I chose to Serve a mission and help bring others unto Christ. By making this choice i have been able to personally know my Savior Jesus Christ and to be spiritually uplifted each and every day. As i study each and preach each day i enjoy learning of the wonderful things our Prophets and Apostles teach us in the Book of Mormon, The Old and New Testaments, and Preach My Gospel. Serving a Mission has been the best decision i have made in my young life. By serving a Mission for my Savior i am living my faith.
