Hi I'm Esther A.Ye

I'm from China, lived in Australia, Hawaii, Utah. I love Jesus and the whole creation. I love missionary work,and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in China, but I went to study abroad in Melbourne, Australia when I was 19. I met missionaries there and joined the church about a month after I took the discussions with them. Later, I transferred to Brigham Young University-Hawaii. In 2013, I applied to be a missionary for my church. I was assigned to Temple Square, Salt Lake City to serve a full-time mission. I finish my mission in July, 2015. After that, I will be going to Brigham Young University-Provo. I love traveling and seeing different culture and people. I love talking with people and getting to know them. On my mission, I loved contacting people on the street and on Temple Square. People are all different. We all have different stories, we are unique. However, we are all from the same Father in Heaven. I love the Plan that God has prepared for me even before I came to the Earth. I love everything He created for us. I love stars, ocean, flowers, animals. I love running, playing badminton, hiking, and music. I love my life here on the Earth, but I am also excited to return to my Father in Heaven to live with Him and my Family again after this life.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know that the Book of Mormon is the words of God, and it helps us come closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ. I feel God's love for me and each of His children when I read it. I know that Joseph Smith was called by God to translate this ancient records, restore the power of the Priesthood and the Church of Jesus Christ on the Earth again. I know that the Book of Mormon and the Bible contain the fullness of the gospel, and they complete each other. I did not know all these things until I desired to find out for myself. God is not a Father of confusion. He loves us, so as long as we have the desire to know, He will reveal unto us His truth. However, it depends on us if we want to seek for it. I am a Mormon, because I want to follow the true church of Christ. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on the Earth today. It was restored through God's prophet, Joseph Smith with proper Authority from God. I am a follower of Christ, one of many many Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I pray and read the scriptures everyday. I attend church on a weekly basis. Those are little steps we take to keep us in line and follow God's plan for us. We are not perfect, and God knows our weaknesses. As we try our best to apply the things we learn from church and our leaders, we will be guided on the right path. In addition, service is one of the best ways to feel God's love for us and helps us come closer to our Savior because He was the best servant to everyone when He was on the Earth. I strive to become a better person each day, that way I can show Heavenly Father I love Him. In the Book of Mormon, Ether 12:27 tells us that we can change and God will make weak things become strong unto us. For me, applying the teachings from the scriptures is the best way to live my faith.
