Hi I'm Ryann Prestwich

I'm currently serving a mission in the Argentina Buenos Aires North Mission!

About Me

I grew up in Oregon where I played basketball all growing up. Once I graduated I moved to Utah where I am attending Utah Valley University. I plan on majoring in Dental Hygeine with a minor in Spanish. As of right now, Im currently serving a mission in the Argentina Buenos Aires North Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I´m a Mormon because I know this gospel is true. Im not saying its been easy. I have had many experiences in my life that have tested my faith. Even though I was born into the church, I had to find my own testimony. There was a point in my life when I was pretty unhappy. During that time I stopped reading my scriptures.. I stopped praying. I only went to church because I didnt want to tell my parents I didnt want to go anymore. I think it had been about a year or more since I had prayed personally. And I can honestly say that during that time I was unhappy. With myself, with the choices I was making, and with life. I needed a change. Thats when I decided to at least try reading once. And praying. The second I finished my prayer it was like a lightswitch turned on. I was filled with an overwhelming assurance that my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me and is aware that I was struggling. That He was just waiting for me to come to Him. Since that moment Ive never doubted. I love this gospel because simply, it makes me happy. That happiness that comes from living the gospel is unlike anything else in this life. That´s why Im out serving a mission. To share this happiness with others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living the gospel on a day to day basis. This also includes a variety of callings growing up in Oregon and in Utah, and now with the most amazing calling of all, serving as a full-time missionary!
