About Me

My name is Zach and I grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I came to California when I was 12 years old and I have loved it ever since. I love to SCUBA dive and surf, but because I have Canadian roots, I love to ski as well. I attended one year of university at Brigham Young University not knowing what I wanted to do in life. After some exploring, I decided that I wanted to join the military and hopefully make a difference. I am currently studying Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University and will eventually focus on Aeronautics within the US military. 你好!我的名字叫龙一晨。我在Canada, Alberta, Edmonton长大了。我到十二岁的时候,我搬到加州去了。我很喜欢住在那边!我很喜欢潜水和冲浪,但是因为我本来是从加拿大来的我也很喜欢滑雪。然后,我在BYU上了一年的大学。当时我不知道要读什么书。过了一段时间之后,我决定了要参入美国海军,然后希望在海军里面有机会可以影响别人。目前,我在加拿大,多伦多为教会传教。我回去加州之后,我打算在海军大学里读飞机工程。

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by a single mother. Ever since I could remember, my mother has set the example for me in every aspect of my life. Because of her, I have had the opportunity to build my foundation on the rock that is Jesus Christ. I have experienced my own conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ mostly though experiences, but also through direct answers to the questions I ask my Father in Heaven. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the surest foundation which anyone can build upon. Through being a member of this church I have gained a better understanding of who God views me as. Every part of my life has been benefitted from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. 我从小一直到现在是一个耶稣基督后期圣徒教会的成员。我小的时候,我的爸爸不在,只有我的妈妈跟我在一起。在我生活的每一个方面, 我的妈妈给我非常好的榜样。因为她为我所做的一切,我有机会可以在耶稣基督的根基上建我的生活。透过经验和祈祷的答案,我开始相信耶稣基督的福音的真实性。我知道耶稣基督的福音是在全世界最稳定的,最不变的,和最宝贵的一件事情。因为我的信仰,我更了解神对我的关心多么的大。我在个个生活的方面得到祝福了。

How I live my faith

I used to be a missionary in Canada speaking the Mandarin language. I loved being a missionary because I could teach others about what has given me so much happiness in life and serve others in the community. I taught a free English class in a more ethnic part of Canada for almost a year. I have also participated in many community service activities, and unplanned service opportunities that I see everyday. Before I was on my mission I taught a religious class on Sundays while I was at BYU. 我现在是一个教会的传教士。我现在在加拿大用普通话来传教。我非常喜欢作为一个传教士因为我有机会可以分享福音所带给我的快乐。我在传教的时候也有一个机会可以服务社会。在有各种种族的地方,我教英语课。
