Hi I'm Ezra
I am from Jakarta, Indonesia.. I love sports and outdoors activities.. I love to watch and to play soccer.. I am a student in Brigham Young University-Hawaii. I am majoring in Information System.. I grew up as a Mormon and served a full time mission in the Utah Ogden Mission.
Why I am a Mormon
My parent are convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I grew up in the Church to follow my parents. When I was in Junior High School, I questioned myself about my beliefs. I questioned if the Church is true and if Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I prayed and asked God about my questions. I felt the Spirit came into my heart and gave me peaceful feeling that I never felt before. Because of that I know the Church is True and Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I am grateful to learn fully of God's commandments that I keep in my life. The teaching of the Church helped me to reach my potential.
Can you think of a specific challenge in your family that Gospel Principles helped overcome?
When I was 17 years old, my older sister passed away. It was probably the greatest trial I received in my life. My heart filled with grief and sorrows. I questioned God's love for me and I started to ask "Why me?". I decided to pray and ask God for comfort. I felt the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. My grief and sorrows were gone. Christ did taken away my grief and sorrows. The knowledge that I will see my sister again gave me hope. The knowledge that our family had been sealed forever gave motivation to keep the commandments and strive to be worthy to see my sister again. I know the God lives and He is our Father in HEaven. I know that family can be together forever by obeying God's laws and ordinances. I overcame the sorrow of death through the Plan of Happiness
How I live my faith
Striving to become better everyday. Small simple things, great things come to pass. Pray, read scriptures everyday, and find opportunities to serve. Share what I know to be true if opportunity comes
