Hi I'm Raquel

I grew up in the Philippines and migrated to Australia in 1989. My father was Chinese and my mother is Filipina. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Raquel but you can call me Ruth or Kelly....Long story where I got those nicknames...I'm a single mum with 2 beautiful daughters ages 29 & 19. I was born in the Philippines where I got baptised when I was 8 years old. Now I am now living in Australia for over 20 years. I love to cook, sing and dance. But most of all, I love to read and study the scriptures especially The Book of Mormon. I am proud to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints....

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the only church that will bring me eternal happniness. Even at a very young age, I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church. This is where I learn how to love everyone. I am not perfect but the church is giving me guidance and direction to have the opportunity that someday I will be able to be with our Heavenly Father someday. I am a Mormon because I know God loves me and I am His special daughter and He knows me by my name. I know and put all my trust in Him as I know He will never forsake me inspite of my weaknesses and short comings. I know that He suffered for our sins and that we will all have the opportunity to be with Him as long as we follow and obey His commandments. I love being a Mormon because I have the opportunity to perform temple ordinances. I love the gospel and I know that I belong to the true church of God here on earth.

How I live my faith

I pray every morning and night and always ask to bless all the people that I will meet and encounter everyday. I am not afraid to let my friends know that I am a Mormon. I am a member of the local community. I am currently called to be a Youth Sunday School teacher. I love taching the youth and able to assist them and help them develop their faith and testimony about the gospel. I have organised temple trips for the last 2 years. I love going to church every Sunday and always thinking what will please Jesus Christ while He is watching me.
