Hi I'm Loren

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Loren Laceste. I'm 19 years old. I was born in the Philippines and moved to Canada in 2009. I currently live in North Vancouver, BC. I also am a big basketball fan. I love to watch TV shows and movies with my family and friends. I have an older brother and a younger brother. I love playing basketball with them. I love my family. I currently am serving a mission in Edmonton. Before my mission I played in various chess tournaments. I coached chess as well for some time before I left for my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this Church is true. To know that God speaks to us today through His chosen servants is an amazing feeling. I know that families can be together forever, and I've known it through this Church. The lessons I learn every week gives me a lot of courage to overcome the trials I face each day.

How I live my faith

I love to share what I know about the Gospel and the joy it brings to me and to my family. I invited friends to Church a lot for fun activities. We played basketball and volleyball every week at Church and sometimes I invited them to participate in cultural events and service projects as well. I am currently on my mission for 2 years and my purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ. I share what I know and let people understand how this Gospel can bless their lives. I also try to smile to everyone around me and serve them as much as I could.
