Hi I'm Ryan Ehmann Ixtlahuac

I grew up in California. My hobbies include: running, playing soccer, and reading! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Ryan. I grew up up in California with my mom and two older sisters; however, after I finished high school we moved to Arizona. I currently attend college in Massachusetts where I am studying biology. I have enjoyed outdoor activities all of my life, including running, playing soccer, and hiking. My high energy level has also contributed to my love for playing percussion. In my down time I enjoy reading books by authors such as: C.S. Lewis, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and George Saunders.

Why I am a Mormon

Jesus Christ suffered for all of the sins, afflictions, heartaches of the world. By his divine sacrifice, we are given the opportunity to once again live with our Heavenly Father. Through faith, repentance, baptism, and the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to become spiritually pure. The Book of Mormon and The Bible hold the fulness of Jesus Christ's teachings. I know all of this to be true because I have felt the Holy Spirit manifest itself to me.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Portugal Lisbon Mission. My purpose is to invite others to follow the example of Jesus Christ.
