Hi I'm Anthony

I grew up in Salt Lake City and Taiwan. I went to my first year of college in Mainland China. I love traveling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy being physically active and doing outdoor activities like hiking, camping, etc. I love trying new things and meeting people. I especially love trying new foods! I have a wide range of hobbies from art to weight lifting. I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to travel quite a bit, and I have loved every minute of it. I just graduated from college, and I am doing my internship right now in Beijing, China!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I have experienced first hand how living by its teachings has blessed my life. It gives me a great deal of peace and enthusiasm about the future. I would venture to say that this gospel shapes and colors everything in my life. It makes relationships more meaningful. It makes my joys deeper. It brings purpose and meaning to my life and allows me to understand why I am here on this earth and where I will go after this life. I know that this gospel is true. I know that the Savior has the power to heal and transform the life of any individual that comes to Him. I am so grateful that through His Atonement, I can be made clean and live with my family forever someday. I know that family relationships can be perpetuated beyond the grave. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that I have drawn closer to God through studying its pages. I know that this church was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith and that we have a living prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson. I am so grateful for the rich blessings I have received from this gospel and I am excited to share this gospel with anybody who I come in contact with. I love being able to approach Heavenly Father in prayer and I know that I have received answers to my prayers. Often times the Lord has answered me through the acts of others. I know that Heavenly Father loves us and that we are all His children. I have seen time and time again how the Lord has made each trial in my life turn into something for my good as I have turned it over Him. I know this church is true!

How I live my faith

Right now I am doing my internship in China, so I take a long and interesting subway ride each Sunday to attend my church meetings. I think my branch here is amazing and I have learned so much already from so many of the people here. This upcoming Sunday we are going on a trip to the Great Wall to have our church meeting! We are going to camp there overnight. I am grateful for all of the opportunities I have had to serve others through this church. It has brought a great deal of joy to my life.
