Hi I'm Melchor

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raise in the Philippines.

About Me

I love being outdoors, enjoying nature's beauty. Basketball, tennis and golf were my top favorite sports. I enjoy being with family and friends. I'm also an all around guy, if there is anything that needs to be fixed, I will do it.

Why I am a Mormon

My girlfriend at that time, I noticed something different about her, then later on I found out that she was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I didn't really have any knowledge about the mormon church. Three years later when my life seemed to be meaningless, one morning I saw two missionaries walking towards me. I stopped them and told them that I wanted to join the church. Their faces seem to light up when I asked them about joining the church. I did not understand it at that time, now I know that it was the spirit guiding them. I was baptized June of 1981 in Davao, the southern part of the Philippines. After a year, I decided to serve a mission, I was assigned to the Philippines Manila Mission. I have served several callings in the church, such as sunday school teacher for the youth and primary, and some other positions as secretary and assistant.

How I live my faith

Honesty is my policy. Helping others is my creed. I do unto others as others would do unto me.
