Hi I'm Roger
I am a third generation Japanese-American. I'm a Mormon.
I am a professor of biology. I am married to a wonderful woman and we have three grown children. I love backpacking and being outdoors. I like to work on cars.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I have come to know very personally that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. By that I mean that we have true prophets who lead us through inspiration, and that the saving priesthood ordinances are real. I have learned through this wonderful church that God lives, that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have come to this knowledge, I think, in the only way I could have, by testing the principles of the Church each day as I try to live them.
How I live my faith
I feel blessed to be able to serve in the Church. I am trying each day to do the will of my Heavenly Father. I hope I can do good to others around me, and that I will be sensitive to spiritual promptings so that I will know when help is needed. When I make mistakes, I try my best to correct them. I try to be honest and fair in all that I do. I try to be a good father and husband.
