Hi I'm Yoshiya

I'm a Mormon?

About Me

I was born in Japan and grew up in New Jersey in the Emerson Ward!! I served a mission in the Canada, Vancouver mission (2010-2012), The Greatest Mission on Earth! Now I'm living the dream studying at BYU in provo, living in a low quality apartment. I love Aunt Jemima!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and redeemer and I have felt his love and compassion in my life. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's kingdom on earth. It's so simple! The world is a pretty messed up place, and it just needs a lot more love! I have felt that love the most in my life by living the correct teachings of Jesus Christ. Something that has given me a lot of comfort and direction in this life is the Book of Mormon. It is another testament of Jesus Christ and I know that God told me that it is true. We all make mistakes in life, and past mistakes lead us to feelings of guilt and shame. It is only through the restored gospel of Jesus Christ that we can completely be cleansed of all of our sins and guilt. I am so grateful for my savior Jesus Christ, and I want to do all that I can to follow him. That is why I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

Well, for a couple of years I was living my faith by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone I meet in British Columbia! There is no greater joy than sharing with others the love of God that I have felt in my life. Now I try to be good person and improve myself each day. Sometimes I regress and digress but for the most part I think I'm moving in a good direction.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?
