Hi I'm Tung-Liang (Tom)

I grew up in a tradition of Buddhist/Taoist, but now, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of two young children. I have a very sweet and supportive wife. My life is mainly composed of my family, church service and work, and a little bite time for my hobbies. One of the very cool experiences I had was that I did 5 times of parachuting during my military service in a airborne brigade. I'm now a stem cell scientist, trying to use stem cells to cure cancers. And I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I met missionaries at a bookstore when I was 17. They invited me to know more about the church. For a pure curiosity, I started to know more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I loved what missionaries had taught me about Jesus, the plan of God for me - we call it the plan of salvation about where I am from, why I am on this earth and where I'm going after this life, as well as the value of family. I decided to join to be a member as I felt good about everything I learned. I think at that time I had a simple desire to follow the teaching of Jesus Christ. Later on I find out even on this day every time I strive to live the gospel of Jesus Christ, it always brings me happiness and peace.

How I live my faith

I learn from the church that our object in this life is to have true happiness with our family. To achieve this, I strive to follow a way of living -base on the principles of gospel taught in the church. I go to church every Sunday. It becomes a very important part of my life. However, more importantly, on the rest of the week for six days is the time for me to practice my religion, to be a good citizen, a good husband, a good father, and a good worker, to apply what I learn from the church in my daily life. It is so blessed to join the church. In a very practical way, we as church members look after one another in many ways. We never feel alone. We are a big family.
