Hi I'm Kent

My wife and I live in NY. I serve my country by helping train Navy sailors how to operate Nuclear Reactors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I moved to New York to pursue a career in the nuclear field. I help Navy sailors learn how to operate the nuclear power systems found on modern US warships. Since my wife is from China, we maintain a multicultural environment at home. You will find us celebrating American and Chinese holidays, eating meals with food from either country, as well as having conversations in which sentences contain words from both languages! We look forward to caring for our first child, who will soon come down from heaven to join in our unique environment. Despite our differing background and upbringing, the gospel of Jesus Christ brought us together and keeps us together. In fact, I met my wife after she came to my apartment as a missionary to teach my roommate about the Book of Mormon. Our faith in God and His Son gives us hope and happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

While living in Taiwan I went through a period of life where my life fell apart. I ran away from home, had all my money stolen from me, and soon had no where to even lay my head. Just when I thought my life would soon end two missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints taught me that Jesus Christ cares for me. After days of sincere prayer and daily study of His words I came to a sure knowledge that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I could feel his love for me. I learned that the reason I ran into problems earlier in my life is because of my own selfishness and disregard for others. I came to know for myself that the Book of Mormon and the Bible contain the teachings of Jesus. I also learned that God directs men through the Holy Ghost. This Person guided the missionaries to me in a time of great need. The Holy Ghost inspires us and teaches us truth. I know that if you place your faith in God that He will influence you through this Spirit. You too can learn the truths of Jesus found in the Book of Mormon and Bible by relying on servants of Christ to help you employ the power of Heaven in your life.

How I live my faith

I help the children at church by helping learn to sing Christ-centered songs.
