Hi I'm Ty Evans

Assigned to labor in the Oregon Salem mission.

About Me

I am currently a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in the Oregon Salem Mission. I love using my talents and abilities to serve God's Children. I am number two in a family of four kids. I love my family so much and enjoy making memories with them. I play ice hockey and plan on playing for BYU after my mission. I am a Toyota Land Cruiser enthusiast. I love to restore and modify offroad vehicles. I enjoy off-roading and expedition style camping. I love to go hiking and backpacking. I always have wanderlust and enjoy a good adventure. I am pursuing a career in prosthetics engineering focusing on veterans and athletes. I find satisfaction when my ideas become reality through designing and building things. I know that I can use my talents to help others have a better way of life.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the proper authority of God. I know that it is the only true church on the earth. I know that through preisthood ordinances and making covenants we can come closer to God and live with our families forever. I know that we can find true lasting joy from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know this because I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. The spirit has testified of its truthfulness. I know that Jospeh Smith was a prophet of God. He translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God and was instructed to restore the Church of Jesus Christ on the earth in this last dispensation. I know it to be true with all my heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example of Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect, but I know that is what the atonement of Jesus Christ is for. I know that when I mess up, I can repent and become clean. I try my hardest to always be progressing, whether it's in a physical or spiritual aspect. I know that if I am progressing and doing everything I can to be faithful it becomes easier to resist temptation. I always look for opportunities to serve those around me. I know that having charity for others brings us closer to God. I study the scriptures daily because I know that it gives me the strength and the spirit that I need to get through the obstacles of life.
