Hi I'm Raymond

I'm a member of church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. I believe in Book of Mormon to be an another gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I am presently in the United States Air Force. I test new satellites for The Department of Defense. I am happily married and have 2 wonderful sons. I love Martial Arts and love to teach it as well. I love movies and especially comedies. One of my favorite TV shows is "So you think you can dance and X factor".

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in my 30's, I felt an emptiness in my life and I didn't know why? I was content, but somehow I felt something was missing. I was born into a Buddhist family. I never quite got the fulfillment from Buddhism, so I kept searching. When I moved to the United States, I attended many different Christian churches for about 10 years and still felt the emptiness. I started to believe that God only loved the Jews when reading the Bible, I wondered why we did not have Prophets on the earth today as in the days of old? One day I was serving in England for my job in the Air force and there was a knock at my door from two missionaries from "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" and they stated they were not supposed to be in the area, but were prompted to visit my home. For about 3 months they came with a message, which I did not listen to. One of the missionaries, in a very stern tone asked me why I had not considered their message? I told them I was trying to be nice and get them out of the cold, England can be quite cold! I really didn't believe their message, so I then said, I will pray to God and if he didn't answer me, I would ask them to leave and never come back, so I prayed and said “God, these two boys have been coming over to my house for months and telling me about the Book of Mormon and I really don’t care about the book or the bible or even Jesus, but I would really like to know if you are alive and if you answer me in a way that I can really know, then I will serve you? After I spoke these words, a personage stood before me. This happened to me twice. Finally I prayed and asked if the Book of Mormon was the story of another tribe of Israel and God answered yes! I read the Book of Mormon and for the first time in my life I appreciated Jesus Christ and felt love for him, for all he did for mankind. This is how I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

My calling in the church is to assist the missionaries in teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I love doing this!
