Hi I'm Lester

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've actually moved around a little bit in my life. I was born in Sydney, Australia were I grew up most of my childhood then moved to San Francisco, California when I turned 10. I was actually born into the church and was raised a mormon. I love both playing and watching sports, listening to music, spending time with family, learning, and just playing around. I'm currently a student at Brigham Young University -Idaho studying to go into a health profession.

Why I am a Mormon

There life experiences that bring happiness and peace but there are also experiences that cause heartache and confusion. In times of trial we often ask why and petition for better circumstances. I'm a mormon because the restored gospel of Jesus Christ gives answer to life's most important questions. Through my study of the scriptures like the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible and through teachings of modern day prophets, I have found that God has a plan for His children on earth. He has not left us to be alone in this world without His divine love and intervention. He has laid it all out through what we know to be the plan of salvation, a plan wherein we may find peace in this life and be able to return to His presence through His Son, Jesus Christ. All of my questions about life have been answered and my direction in life is sure. I know who I am and what I am doing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in the small private acts of devotion. I say my prayers, study the teachings of Christ and His prophets, and attend church on Sundays. It's those small action that bring me closer to God and help me to understand my relationship with Him. I served as a missionary for the church when I turned 19 in Seattle, Washington. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life to share my faith. I loved having gospel discussions on about the purpose of life and how we can each find happiness and peace by drawing closer to God.
