Hi I'm Zachary Told

I enjoy traveling and being with my family and friends. I am currently serving a mission in Salta Argentina. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in the Argentina Salta mission. I am enjoying the Spanish and the many things that the gospel and my mission is bringing to my life. After which I plan on attending Utah State University to pursue my interests in the medical field. I enjoy being outside, riding dirt bikes, snowboarding, and being with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family with pioneer heritage and a long line of Latter Day Saint history. With this, I always grew up in a home where the gospel of Jesus Christ was often heard and going to church every Sunday was a usual occurrence. I have always felt the spirit in church or when I read the scriptures since I was young. Getting baptized when I was eight years old was an easy decision I had made for myself. Many times have I knelt in prayer to know the truth of this gospel and I always receive the same warm answer of the spirit. The guidelines established by the church often scare people away, but I can testify that it has bettered my life in numerous aspects. This is the only church upon the earth with modern day prophets who live and guide the church. I sustain each of them and will head to their counsel. I know that Joseph Smith was the one to restore the foundation of the gospel upon the church for these modern times. The Book of Mormon is a true book that coincides with the revelation found in the Bible. I know that one day I will live with my Heavenly Father again with my eternal family. I do love this gospel and all the blessings it brings to my life and family.

How I live my faith

Being apart of the smaller ward I attend in my hometown, I have held many callings in the young mens program. Each Wednesday I organize and conduct a youth night for all young men and women, 12 to 18 years old, in which we learn new skills or have fun. Many times these nights hold devotionals given by leaders or sometimes other youth. Each Sunday when the ward meets for sacrament meeting, me and along with two other boys bless and pass the sacrament. To do this we must hold the priesthood keys, which we all have to be worthy to use. Every month me and another priesthood holder go to do hometeaching. Hometeaching is when two priesthood brethren visit another members house to give a spiritual message and provide any kind of service anytime throughout the month.
