Hi I'm Jeremiah.

I am an architectural designer, a sport fisherman, a traveler, a member missionary, and I'm grateful to be a Mormon.

About Me

I am Chinese American from New York City. I was born and raised in New York, attending church each Sunday. I love art, drawing, architecture, and enjoying time in the great outdoors-fishing, camping, and hiking. I've served in the Australia Sydney North Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was the most awesome and spiritual service I've ever volunteered in my life. I work in the field of architecture and an aspiring architect. I am a member missionary and love working with full time missionaries. I love my family. I love God. And I am grateful to be a Mormon in New York City.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up attending church each Sabbath with my family. My parents set the wonderful example to me to follow the gospel of our Saviour Jesus Christ. Although I grew up attending church, I had to find out if the gospel and if the LDS Church is true. From time to time, I have really strong impressions and inspirations while studying the scriptures, especially The Book of Mormon-Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I recognized these special moments were inspiration from the Holy Spirit. My testimony of the Lord's gospel had grown tremendously. The gospel of Christ plays a major role in my life and strengthens me each day.

How I live my faith

I am truly grateful for all the holy scriptures. Spending time to ponder them brings upon personal revelation. It is priceless. The words of the prophets are like voices rising from the dust-shining in my hands. Living the gospel in a place like New York City is very challenging. The intense city life, harshness, and numberless temptations can be overwhelming. Reading the Hymn book and singing the songs in my head on the subway train brings a smile. Constant prayer from the heart to God each day and as often as I can, brings me daily comfort as I travel around. Constant church attendance is very vital to my faith, as well as attending the holy temple-the heavenly realm/foretaste of eternal joy on earth. And of course, I love teaching and working with full time missionaries! It's extremely joyful!
