Hi I'm Shile Wu

I grew up in China, went university for three years in Sweden, now I am a full time missionary in England. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love travelling. This is a big reason why I was studying Tourism and Hosptiallity Management as my major. I travelled a lot when I was student. People around me always say I am happy. I'm always smilling. The gospel brings me happiness. Now I am a 2 year full time missionary in London South Mission. It is a wonderful experience to be a missionary, to serve others and teach people and bring this happiness to their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in China, at school I was taught there is no God. I heared people talking about Jesus Christ and the Bible but I had never studied it. When I turned 18, my father passed away, it was very hard for my mother untill she started going to church and become a christian. It really help her a lot. So she wanted me to go as well. During that time I was not that interested to go to church, but I started to read a little bit of the Bibble and started searching for religion. In 2009, I went to Sweden to study and I went to an activity held by the Mormon Chruch, and I got to know some members and missionaries from the church. And I started to go to the Mormon Church. When I attended for the first time, I felt so welcomed. Everyone was very nice, it is just like a big family, I also started to take the missionary lessons, started to read the Book of Mormon and Pray. I think as I was having desire to know God and his truth. He will always help me to get answer. I know the peaceful and happy feeling I have in the church, when praying and reading scriptures. I was baptised in March 2010. It was a wonderful experience for me to make this covernat with God and to be a follower of Jesus Christ. I can't imagine how my life will be without this Gospel. I know God is there and he loves me. He has a plan for me so he helps me to get to know him and I recieved this restored Gospel in Sweden.

How I live my faith

I always enjoy going to church on Sunday. Don't feel you will just sit and doing nothing! There are always have a lot of things to do. I was teaching Young Men from 12 to 18 age grounp in the church. I also taught the sunday class. It was a wonderful experience to teach others. Meanwhile, I learned a lot myself. I think this is something I really enjoy in the church. Everyone has the opportunity to serve others. We can learn and grown together. At the same time, I think that being a Mormon and a Christian is not only for Sundays. I feel this is a life style that enriches your daily life. How? Wake up, pray in the morning, studying scripture, keeping the commandments of the Lord daily, show love to people around us and serve them, show love to our Heavenly Father, develop faith daily...... I can feel life is wonderful as I live in the faith!
