Hi I'm Lysander

I was born in Hong Kong. I enjoy cooking. I love singing. I'm obsessed with basketball. And... I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am serving as a missionary in Calgary Canada. I like to cook, but I like to eat even more, especially the food that my friends make for me, and Dark Chocolate=). I love music, but I'm terrible at instruments.I can sing though. I love all kind of sports, especially Badminton and Basketball. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or in other words I'm a Mormon. 我現在以傳教士的身份在加拿大卡加利服務。 我喜歡烹飪,但更喜歡吃東西。 特別是朋友為我做的食物,還有黑巧克力=) 我愛音樂,但不太會玩樂器,只會唱歌。 我愛各種運動,特別是羽毛球和籃球。 我是耶穌基督後期聖徒教會的成員。 換句話說,我是一個後期聖徒。

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church. I always know God lives. I was taught by my teachers that Jesus Christ is my Savior. But I didn't really know him. Until when I was eight, couple weeks before my baptism. I really wanted to know who Jesus Christ was. I taught to my Mom and she asked me to read the scriptures and pray. I did but nothing happened until I was sitting at the front seat at my baptism. I really wanted to know who Jesus Christ was. So I offered a prayer in my heart, asked Heavenly Father Help me get to know Jesus Christ. After the prayer, a warm and peaceful feeling pieced into my heart, scenes of the life of Jesus Christ were flashing through my mind. I knew Jesus Christ loves me, He was my older brother and my Savior, and will be, forever. I cried. That experience was ingrained into my soul, and gives me strength through out my life. I know that Jesus Christ lives, He loves every single one of us. And that's why He sacrificed for us that all of us have the opportunity to go back to live with our Heavenly Father and with those we love.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week. With a heart that's ready to learn. I learn of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, or the teachings of Jesus Christ. Then I try my best to apply all of the principles into my daily life. For example, I learned how to love and how to show my love to others through service opportunities. Then I look for those opportunities and do all that I can to help those around me. Through service I became a blessing in the lives of others, and I could enjoy the happiness that couldn't be found anywhere else. Also I chose to serve a mission that I can share the happiness and joy in my life with others.
