Hi I'm Pao Lee

I live in the golden state of CA. I am Hmong and I am proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a Mormon or LDS for over 16 years. I served a Spanish speaking mission in Alabama. I am married to a beautiful wife and have a charming 2 year old daughter and a son on the way. I was born in Thailand. My parents are non-members and are still very much involved in the traditions and religion of the Hmong culture. It was a challenge for me growing up in the church being the only active member in my family, but with the Lord's help, I have been able to overcome many obstacles.

Why I am a Mormon

I remember being taught by the missionaries about prophets and the Savior. It all made sense to me as a young boy that if the Lord truly loved us He would continue to call living prophets to guide us. Of course I read the Book of Mormon and like many others I prayed about it and I received a confirmation from the spirit that the Book of Mormon testified, along with the Bible, that Jesus was the the Christ and is the savior of mankind. I believe if someone really has the desire to want to know the truth and follow the Savior, they need to be humble and sincerely pray and the Lord will answer.

How I live my faith

I have a full time job outside the church and also a job within the church. Part of my calling in the church is I have to attend meetings and make sure the needs of the people I oversee are met. As a leader I do this by trying my best to inspire them and by being a good example. It is essential to keep the commandments so that I may have the spirit of the Lord to help me lead.

What is faith?

Pao Lee
Faith is believing in something that you cannot see. I always tell my friends that without action faith is dead, so it is not just believing in something or someone, but acting upon that belief. Show more Show less
