Hi I'm Zach

I'm from the United States. I love the outdoors. I play cello. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in New Mexico and Oregon, and am now a full-time missionary in the Philippines. In high school I was a pole vaulter, I play cello, and I sing. I love outdoor activities, especially rock climbing, skiing, and cliff jumping. I have been called to serve in the Phillipines Tacloban Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for the next two years. After that I will be attending Brigham Young University to study Mechanical Engineering and continue playing cello.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church. I have been raised by parents who are diligent followers of the Gospel. They have taught and raised me in its ways. Especially over the last few years, I have been strengthening my discipleship to Christ and His Gospel. This Church has the fullness of the Gospel and teaches principles that bring happiness in this life and in the life to come. Without the church, I don't know where I'd be in life. But I know that I belong here, and so do we all.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of my Church, attending Sunday meetings as well as weekday youth activities. In high school I took scripture-study classes called seminary. I often like to share music in church whether in our ward choir, singing with friends, or playing cello. I enjoy organizing and participating in organized activities with the church community. I am serving a two year full-time mission for the church.
