Hi I'm Kaoru Luis Tsubaru

I am a Keyblade Master, an Anime fanatic and Gamer, a violin player, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary. But before and after my mission I would say that Japanese culture is the air I breath and music is the blood in my veins. I love anime and manga, video games , music , writing, Japanese dancing or any kind of dancing as long as its modest LOL, I am a movie critique, I love art, and reading. I am a violin player and a little piano, I love to sing, but not a lot of people are interested in hearing me because I am not that good at it. I am obsessed with the Kingdom Hearts series, and that is my dream universe. I really believe that all the worlds, lands, universes that are depicted in video games, books and movies truly exist somewhere in the vast expanse of worlds our Heavenly Father has Created. I am also a cosplayer.  Part of my love for music leads me to be really into musicals I wish I could turn my life into one and just break into song every time something exciting is going on so mostly every five or ten minutes. I love food aswell, my favorite kind is japanese and chinese, closely followed by italian. My mom is quite an acomplished internationak cook that has taught me well in the culinary art, so just like Anton Ego "I dont like food, I love it and I dont swallow unless I love it". I am part of the SUW one of the uprising anime clubs in Mexico, I think of them as my family as well. I beleive that my friends are my strenght, and friends is nothing but the family that we pick for ourselfs.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a Mormon because through prayer and study I received an answer from my Heavenly Father that this was the restored church of his son Jesus Christ and that only through it would I be able to obtain all the blessings that he had prepared for me and that through the restored authority of his gospel I would be able to be together forever with my family.

How I live my faith

Right now I live my Faith by serving as a full time missionary. But before I really love living my faith trough service projects, helping others gives you a kind of happiness you cannot get any other way.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Kaoru Luis Tsubaru
The law of chastity is a protection against the improper use of the power that we hold as males and females to create new life.

The law of chastity tells us that the way to do that is by haveing sexual relationships only within the bonds of lawfull marriage. Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Kaoru Luis Tsubaru
Mainly the word mormon is a nickname, that got started on the fact that we beleive not only in the Holy Bible, but also in the Book of Mormon to be Holy scripture. So I guess someone along the road thought, if they beleive in the book of Mormon, they must be Mormons. Show more Show less
