Hi I'm Letty

I'm happy that my family embraced the true gospel of Jesus Christ early in my life. It is a blessing to be a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in the Philippines and came to the United States to be with my husband in 1987. I am in business and loving it. I'm also engaged in foreign exchange or currency trading. My family is my most cherished treasure. I pray that someday we will be together in the eternities.

Why I am a Mormon

In 1971, my mother and I took great interest in the weekly discussions that two young Mormon missionaries shared with us. Many of life's questions that kept us wondering were finally answered. Their teachings made a lot of sense with regards to the true nature of the Godhead, the purpose of life and that families are forever, the significance of paying tithing, the need to take care of our bodies by following sound health rules which they called, the Word of Wisdom, etc. It was also very interesting to learn of another book, The Book of Mormon, that claimed to support the Bible's teachings. We loved what we heard and we readily accepted their teachings as truth. I was a serious investigator. I took notes to make sure I'd pass the bishop's interview for my baptism. My mother and I were baptized four months after my father became a member in 1970. The rest of my siblings and their families joined the church later on. I've been blessed with a strong testimony as I continue to do what's expected of me - living my life the gospel way.

How I live my faith

My family practiced Christianity even before we became members of the church, so deciding to become Mormons was not a challenge. The new gospel principles we learned from this church have helped us become better disciples of Jesus Christ. I like that the church promotes growth on the members by giving responsibilities and expecting wholehearted service without giving monetary rewards. I find fulfillment in serving others. I am tolerant with those who don't share my beliefs.
