Hi I'm Rj Javier

I am a Filipino, a BYU Hawaii student, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student of Brigham Young University Hawaii and a part of the scholarship program of the church. Being part of BYUH is a privilege and a blessing for me. I love music especially classical music. I also love cooking. I love serving others and that is why I'm taking my degree in Social Work. I am excited to graduate and to serve the people of my country, Philippines.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a member of the church which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My parents are both member of the church and they joined the church when they were single. I started to learn the teachings of the church since I was young but as I grew up and understand more about religion and faith I started to question many things about the doctrines of the church. My mother counsels me to pray and to study the scripture more. I study and pray and continue searching and up to now I know that this church is true. I know that Heavenly Father lives and that his Son Jesus Christ is the head of this church. There is no doubt in my heart that this is true and that is what the Holy Spirit have taught me. I am still here strong in the church and this is where I find joy and peace in my heart. I love being a member of this wonderful church that provides service and love to many people around us. The church have taught me how to have a deep and true relationship with our Heavenly Father, a true understanding of the atonement of Jesus Christ and his love for us, and the constant guide of the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church, I have participated in many activities and carried some responsibilities that will help the church and its members. I help local leaders of the church in spreading the gospel and in inviting them to come unto Christ. I live my faith daily as I mingle with many different kinds of people everyday. I always try to be nice, to be honest, and loving to others just like our Saviour Jesus Christ. I know I ma not perfect but I am striving to do my best to become better everyday.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Rj Javier
We believe that the bible is also the word of God. Along with other scriptures such as the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, and the Doctrine and Covenants we use the Holy Bible as our source of learning and guidance. We believe the Old Testament and the New Testament. Personally, I love reading the life and the ministry of our Savior Jesus Christ and his apostles in the New Testament. The Bible is a special tool in my life for me to know more about the God of Old Testament and the life of our Master Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
