Hi I'm Elder Bryan

I'm currently serving in the Philippines Quezon City North Mission! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm grew up just outside of Portland Oregon! I love playing soccer, music, hiking, and backpacking! I play the piano and organ and sing in choir. I'm also in the middle of an Applied Math degree at BYU. I love being in nature and learning more about the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy! I have come to know for myself that the Gospel of Jesus Christ as restored to Joseph Smith is true. As I have learned about the church and studied the Book of Mormon I have prayed to Heavenly Father and really feel like I've received an answer to that prayer. I have felt the Holy Spirit confirm to me that the gospel is true. I have also "experimented on the word," as Alma encourages in the Book of Mormon. When I work hard to cultivate a relationship with my God I tend to be happier.

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith most by serving as a full time missionary. I love the gospel and everything about the Church, and I truly believe that the best possible use of my time is to share that joy with other people. I am spending two years of my life to make that possible.
