Hi I'm Li Mei

I was born and raised in Malaysia. I'm a Malaysian Chinese. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am fortunate to be born and raised in an Islamic country with the freedom to choose my religion. I came from a very diverse background with different religions as part of my everyday culture. My background has helped me to learn to appreciate and respect different cultures especially after leaving my home country. I am currently a college student studying in Hawaii. I love my life in paradise and above all, I enjoy learning the culture of the land and the true meaning of aloha.

Why I am a Mormon

My father was the first member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Two sister missionaries taught him the gospel when he was living his single life and needed further direction in his life. One of the sisters asked if he wanted to learn more about his purpose here in life and God's plan for him. He accepted their invitation, took many discussions and was later converted. My father's faith and good example has helped me to have a desire to gain my own testimony. I found peace in the gospel and hope in its teaching. I know that the gospel taught in the Church is the true restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Through this gospel of Jesus Christ, I am able to know of my Heavenly Father's eternal love and plan of salvation for me. It is because of the many blessings I have received that led me to my decision to serve a full-time mission for the Church 2 years ago. It was the most fulfilling 18 months yet in my life. I desire to continue sharing this gospel of hope and happiness for the rest of life.

How I live my faith

I love learning new things through service. Simple acts such as visiting a sick sister or writing an encouraging note to someone in distress are some activities that brighten my day or week when I get to do it. I do my best to live my faith each day by following the example of my Savior Jesus Christ. A question I frequently ask myself is What Would Jesus Do? This simple question is my motivation to be better each day.
