Hi I'm Patrick John Villamor

I'm from Philippines, i found THIS TRUE CHURCH last September 2009 with my family! I AM PROUD being a MORMON!

About Me

I am a family-loving person who loves to watch movies and television, hanging out with friends. I LOVE being a LATTER-DAY SAINTS!

Why I am a Mormon

..at first i am afraid and have a big regret to join this church because i am in my teenager stage when missionaries came to our home. As a teenager, i don't want to be in a situation that is very new to me and i don't want to join in a particular organization if i am not really committed because i know everything will be wasted! but as my story goes, my mother decided to be baptized, after that, my brothers and sister wanted too... i feel big pressure when they they tell those decisions of them to me! i asked many friends about joining this church and they just said, "its family, you must be united!". all their answers are rational until the point came that there's no one i can ask to, so i just prayed to Him saying "why this things are coming to my way and my family??? is it for good??"..no clear answer came so i just followed what my classmates said to me, to be with my family, i decided to be baptized too! on the way being a member of this church and stayed active, i just realized that my prayer was answered! i don't know what great feeling being a member that KEEPS me going in this church... i feel the spirit of god wants my family to be here and i'm really thankful for god sends His missionaries to my family to be in this TRUE CHURCH! a big change happened to myself and my family the way we live...the gospel has changed us AND I WANT TO SHARE THIS GREAT HAPPINESS THAT WE FEEL!!!! I KNOW THAT THIS IS THE TRUE CHURCH, I LOVE THIS CHURCH and I AM PROUD BEING A MORMON!!!!!!

How I live my faith

Everything is not easy to live in terms of what you believe but I am trying to live like Him the best that i can. At first it is hard to change the way you live from being worldly to being good. But as I've learned what is the purpose of this life and the the hope given by the Atonement of Christ, I've learned how to change everything little by little. I believe this life is about trying your best and hoping that you can do everything better to be like Him. I am committing myself to be better, stand up if i fall and keep trying all I can to be like Him. I will never give up because i know what is true and i know that He will guide me in every way. The Gospel gives me the COURAGE and STRENGTH to press forward!
