Hi I'm Buddhi Ukwaththa

I grew up in Sri Lanka. I m from a family of four. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I gew up in Sri Lanka. I m from a family of four. I am an accountant. I got marriad September, 2011. We are expecting a baby girl in June. I like cricket, canoeing, hiking, running, camping, biking, cooking, and many more. I would love to spend time with my wife in our beautiful home.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's church. I always wondered after this life. I always wanted to be with my family forever. I did not want to lose my family after death. Being a Buddhist, I could not receive the answes for my questions though I learned great things from that religion. I met the Mormon missionaries in Colombo, 2001. I was going home for the weekend. I thought that it was an accidental meeting. We exchanged our contact information and I left without hoping to meet again. Missionaries contaced me two days later. I went to the Colombo chapel. I was my very first time going to a Christian church. Missionaries started teaching me. It took me nine months. I read the whole Bookof Mormon. I prayed about it. And I received the confirmation that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and the Book of Mormon is true and it testifies the atonment of jesus Christ, and we have living prophets today. I was baptizd in May 13, 2002. A year after my baptism, I was called to serve in the Singapore mission. I had the previledge to serve in Singapore, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka. This is the most memorable two years in my life.

How I live my faith

I have served in the curch in many capacities. I always enjoy doing hometeaching more than anythingelse. I think hometaching is a great opportunity to serve others. When I was first joined with the church, I did not even know what hometeaching is. My first hometeaching companion set me good exampleto be good hometeacher. I have sen many blessings in people's lives because of hometeaching though it may seem a little.
