Hi I'm Vue

I'm Hmong. I've been a member my whole life, and I love being a mormon.

About Me

My name is Vue. I've been married a little over a year now, and going to be a father soon. I am raised by goodly parents, and I have a big and wonderful family. I have 8 brothers and 4 sisters. I am the fifth oldest in my family. I am the first in my family to serve a mission. I served in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. I served mostly among the caucasions, and about six months among the Native Americans, specifically the Navajos. I am now continuing my education, and also working for Rite Aid as a assistant manager. Some of my favorite hobbies are singing and dancing. I am also very spontaneous and outgoing. I will do almost anything that's fun. I think that I'm a very happy person. I love to smile and make people happy. I am a person who cares. I care and love my family very much. I do all that I can for my family to keep us all together in this gospel. That's just me.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of this church my whole life, but I wasn't truly converted until I was 20 years old. It was about the time when I was trying to make the decision to serve a mission. One day I went to a Young Single Adult fireside and the topic happened to be on Prayer. I thought it was a silly topic since God had not answered me. The speaker shared a story about mother teaching her daughter Sarah how to write her name and her numbers 1 thru 10 for preparation for kindergarten. Sarah was able to master this easily. Soon school started and the mother took her Sarah in on the first day. The mother took her to class, and quickly introduced the both of them to the teacher. The mother told the teacher how smart Sarah was. The teacher then smiled at Sarah and asked her, pointing to where the desk was, to pick her favorite color from the box and write her name on the piece of paper, and then take a seat. Sarah quickly nodded and went. As the mother continue to converse with the teacher about how smart Sarah was, the teacher realized that Sarah was just standing by the desk. So the teacher went over and repeated herself to Sarah , and she smiled and nodded. And the same happened again. So the teacher finally picks up a color and wrote her name for her. The mother was confused and a little upset. After school ended, the mother asked Sarah why she didn't do what the teacher said. Sarah softly replied, "My favorite color wasn't in the box." The speaker then asked us audience if we too wait for God's answer, but in our favorite color. Right then, I heard a still small voice that only said, "you know it's true". I felt a good feeling like never before and I knew it was from God. That very moment, I knew that I already know that this church is true. I decided that night that I will serve a mission. I finally realized that God had already answered me a long time ago, but I just didn't see it because I wanted it my way. This story changed my life and it is why I'm a Mormon today.

How I live my faith

I continue to be a faithful and strong member in this church. I was the Young Single Adult president for a while, then a Young Men President, and now called to be a Branch/Ward Mission Leader. I work with the missionaries who are currently serving in my Branch. We discuss about the people they're currently teaching on how to better prepare them to draw closer to our Savior Jesus Christ and be baptized a member of this church. I love how I get to go out with the missionaries and teach what I know to be true. I love the feeling of being able to not only share, but bring them to the truth. Saving my own brothers and sisters is the best thing ever. I love being a missionary. I continue to pray daily, read from the scriptures daily, and continually going to church every Sunday. I know that by doing these three things, I will never fall away from the church. I have family night, called Family Home Evening, once a week. We teach eachother and share with eachother about things in life, and always have some spiritual lesson involved. I am honest in all that I do and say, whether it be at home or at work. Integrity is very important to me. I not only believe, but I also do my best to live what I believe, and what I know to be true. Believing is not enough. Doing and living your faith is what matters.
