Hi I'm James Janghwan Kim

I am an Korean, studying in US as an college student at BYU-Idaho, I am an Opera singer, Software Engineer, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at the Brigham Young University, studying in Software Engineering. I have an year left for the graduation! As a student studying in foreign country, it is very hard for me to understand their culture and language. But It is great opportunity learn the language of our prophet! I am so excited! I am from Seoul which is the capital of South Korea. It is such a big city. I was born and raised in Korea under great parent. My father taught physics in High school and mom is such a sweet tender house wife always. My mission was the first time living in different country. It was such a great blessing to serve as servant of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Mission changed my entire life. I love all kind of music, especially, Opera. Since I have trained how to sing opera, it makes me sing beautiful so that I can sing for the Lord. I am so grateful for Father in heaven that I can sing for others. I am so happy to see people while they are listening to my music. I am trying to be positive person as best as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. But that is not the reason that I am a Mormon. I have had lots of chances to leave the church. However, through the Book of Mormon, I was able to get to know that this is the right church that has fullness Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was able to get to know this book by reading and pondering with whole my heart. I do respect people who has different belief. There are lots of great people that I was able to meet. But to me, I can not deny the feeling that I have felt for this Gospel. The Gospel of Jesus Christ brought me happiness. I was and am very happy to live the life with this gospel. That was why I decided to serve my mission even though I didn't where to go to. Lots and lots of experiences and miracles that I have had from mission convinced me that there is a God who is always watching over us, listening to our prayer. That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary now. I pray and read scriptures everyday. Try to follow the all commendments that God gave us. I serve for Lord to find and help people. I try to do all things that God told us to do.

“hope for things which are not seen, which are true” faith.... I think that To have faith is the base of Miracle. because of the faith, I believe that Miracles happen to me and to my family, to people who loves me. if we have a faith in Jesus Christ, we can do whatever we want to do which is good things Show more Show less
