Hi I'm Ellis Y. LI

I'm a Mormon also known as a member of The church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.

About Me

I live in Pacheco and have been a LDS member for many years. I work in a clinic as billing manager. Although I am not social much in church, but I still love to go to church and feel the joy in the gospel. I love to meet more people. I value my testimony and the blessing from the only true church on the earth that brought to my life. I value the knowledge of the gospel that give me peace throughout my life. I enjoy being a Mormon. No matter how challenging my life is, I still love the church and the knowledge I received from it.

Why I am a Mormon

I love God and Jesus, and I love the church. It does not matter what happened to me in this life, whether I am lucky and not lucky. I feel that life is learning. Nothing has to be perfect in order to enjoy life. In 1973, I was in college searching for religion. I had learned to do meditation. One night, I had a dream, an angel of God came to visit me, he said his name is Gabriel, the same angel that visited Mary (Jesus's mother). He wears a white dress length down to his knee with no shoes on. He has blonde hair with nice feature on his face. I can remember him so well even if I see him today, I will recognize him. He is young like me at the time I saw him. He told me to come with him to a large forest, we were standing seven feet above the ground, we saw a boy aged around 15 years old, dig into the ground and find a book make of Golden plates. The angel told me that God will call him as his prophet and commanded him to translate this book into the The Book of Mormon. His name is Joseph Smith. The angel also told me to sit at Joseph’s place and feel the process of the translation, he put his hand on top of my head and give me the authority to feel this process, so I can know exactly how he translate the book. At the time I saw the writings on the Golden Plate, the translation tools. The angel also showed me the creation of mankind to the end of the world which is judgement day. One event after another. It is like flashing pictures coming to my mind as he spoke to me. After the dream is over, I could not go back to sleep, because it is so real and impressive. I feel excited and happy to know that God still care about us and send a prophet to translate the golden plate. Six months after the dream,I met the LDS missionaries on Campus, they told me about the story of Joseph Smith, and then I recognize it and know this event has happened in 1830. This is also recorded at www.ellisdreams.com under Angel Gabriel

How I live my faith

I love to go to the temple. In there, I feel the peace and spirituality to fight to live a better life. Although my life is not perfect, yet I am learning every minute of it. To go back to Heavenly father is to keep the commandments of God. That is the only way we can go back to him.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?
