Hi I'm John

I grew up in the Philippines and I'm a mormon missionary serving in the California Fresno Mission

About Me

I love music and I love sports. I was the captain of my tennis team in high school.Playing guitar, singing and dancing are also some of favorite things to do. Before my mission I was living and going to school in Hawaii. I am the second of four kids and I love my family. Some of my favorite hobbies are long walks on the beach and getting caught in the rain. I have a tendency of having crazy ideas which always gets people injured, most of the time its me though. My mission has been the experience of my life so far. Being able to testify of Jesus Christ, our Savior, and helping those in need has brought my life so much joy. I love learning and I hope to keep learning and working hard to bring others to Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was eight years old like many others , but my family fell far away from the chruch. Our family went through many different struggles, including a divorce, which took a toll on each and every one of us. Growing we just kinda forgot about the church and never really became part of it. In high school I met some friends who were members and were good influences on me. They dragged me to church and many other activites. It wasn't until I moved to Hawaii that I had to figure out myself if everything that I was told was true or not. All my friends in Hawaii had a knowledge of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ which was always displayed through their actions, which was something that I truly desired. So I built up the courage and did just as James counsels and asked my Heavenly Father. He answered my prayers in a way that I couldn't deny, because I prayed, Heavenly Father gave me the inspiration to go on a mission which is something that I never before imagined. I am a Mormon because it is the path that my Heavenly Father has chosen for me. Being part of his true church has brought me to a greater knowledge of his divine plan for all of his children. It has given me a clearer understanding of the scriptures and my purpose here on the earth.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the California Fresno Mission and I have loved every moment of it. I try my best everyday to invite others to come unto Christ. I hope to set an example to my family and those that I love. Its the best feeling in the world just being able to go out and help people through service or any other means, as a missionary I've been blessed by being able to be an instrument in my Father's hands. I believe that the best way to express our beliefs is through our own lives.
