Hi I'm D.J Lim

I'm a soccer player, a pianist, a beast, and I'm a mormon

About Me

Yo I'm D.J Lim. I love playing sports. I love soccer, basketball, and food. Especially deep fried chickens. I did a little bit of kickboxing. I love tricking. I love watching UFC. Anderson Silva and Benson Henderson are my favorite fighters. Yup. I love listening to Hip hop and rap music. I love alternatives and indies as well. I play piano and guitar. I attended BYU-I for a year. I'm planning on going back there until I get my AA or something. I'm a convert, I was baptized when I was 16. I'm going to be a great father one day. I'm serving a mission in Tallahassee, Florida with the best missionaries in the entire world and it's just awesome being out here teaching people about the gospel of jesus christ and the restored church. oh and I LIKE TUHTLES.

Why I am a Mormon

I've made lots of mistakes in my early teenage years, and My parents thought that it would be good for me to separate myself from my friends. So When I was 15 years old, I became a foreign exchange student. Soon, I landed in Vegas. My first host family, although a nice couple with a wonderful baby, and I didn't get along very well. I had two good friends on my soccer team that happened to be members of the church. One day, I was eating lunch with one of them, and I jokingly asked him if I could move in with him. he laughed and said "No." That evening, he calls me and says he talked to his family and they want me to move in. Next Friday, I moved in. I felt so much love from the family. I just couldn't understand how much love and kindness they can have for a stranger like me. I mean, I barely knew them at this point. I wanted to find out what brings them so much happiness. They invited me to come to church with them, and I went and had the greatest feeling as soon as I walked in the building. I started taking missionary discussions, read the book of Mormon, came to know that it is true. Nothing was holding me back. I got my parents' permission to be baptized. And now, I've been a member for about 4 years. It has been a true wonderful blessing/miracle for me to live with this family and be a part of this family.

How I live my faith

I teach, preach and testify to the people I talk to that Jesus Christ is our savior, and we can gain and strengthen our testimony in Jesus Christ by reading & praying about the book of mormon. I tell them that the book of mormon is another testament of jesus christ, goes hand in hand with the bible, and that Joseph smith was a prophet of God, and that he was able to translate the book of mormon with the power of God. Also I tell them that The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints is the same restored church that Jesus Christ established during his earthly ministry and that it is the only true church. And I get to do that as a representative of Jesus Christ. I keep the commandments and try my best to be a good boy. And I pray every night and express my gratitude to my father in heaven for everything that he has given me.

What is the priesthood?

D.J Lim
The Ability and Authority to act in God's name. God created the earth by the power of the Priesthood. With the Priesthood, you can move mountains, if you have enough faith to do so, and above all, if it's God's Will. Show more Show less
