Hi I'm ANABELLE RUFINO PORTANTE FOLEY

I'm a Mormon. I WAS BAPTIZED ON SEPTEMBER 18,1983. I WAS BORN IN AGUISAN,HIMAMAYLAN,NEGROS OCCIDENTAL, PHILIPPINES.

About Me

I WORK AS A FLOOR NURSE IN A PSCHCHIATRIC WARD IN SMALL AND UNIQUE LOCAL HOSPITAL NEAR MY TOWN. I AM A MOTHER OF 5.

Why I am a Mormon

I STARTED INVESTAGATING THE CHURCH IN THE PHILIPPINES BACK IN THE 80'S & BECAME THE 1ST MEMBER OF MY FAMILY . SOON AFTER COMING TO AMERICA , FEW OF MY SISTERS & MY PARENTS BECOME MEMBERS & SERVED IN MANILA , PHILIPPINE MISSION. I AM SO GREATFUL THAT HEAVENLY FATHER OPEN THE DOOR FOR ME AND WHO FOLLOWED BEHIND ME AND ACCEPT THE GOSPEL IN THEIR LIVES. THESE LAST FEW YEARS WERE A STRUGGLE FOR ME AND MY FAITH BUT I'M SO GREATFUL THAT HEAVENLY FATHER LEAD ME BACK TO FOLLOWING THE WAY TO THE STRAIGHT & NARROW PATH, THAT IS FOLLWING AND LIVING THE COMMANDMENTS THAT THE LEADERS OF THE CHURCH AND THE TEACHINGS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. I'M ALSO THANKFUL OF THE PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH FOR RESTORING THE BOOK OF MORMON. IF WE TRULY FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS OF OUR PROPHETS, IF WE SEARCH , PONDER AND PRAY AND FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS AND APPLY THEM IN OUR DAILY LIVES, WE CAN ENHERIT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AS PROMISED TO US. AND I SAY THESE THINGS IN THE NAME OF OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, AMEN.....

How I live my faith

LIVING MY FAITH TO BE AN LDS ISN'T EASY. HAVING TO LIVE WITH DAILY TRIALS AND TRIBULATION ARE STRUGGLES THAT I HAD TO COMPREHEND. I HAVE BEEN ON AND OFF THE CHURCH FOR THIS PAST FEW YEARS. I THANK THE LORD AND HEAVENLY FATHER FOR HELPING ME ACTIVE IN CHURCH AGAIN AND GIVING ME THE BLESSING TO A CALLING OF THE WARD CHIR DIRECTOR.. ATTENDING SERVICE S EVERY SUNDAY IS A BLESSING TO PARTAKE THE SACRAMENT AND RENEWING THE COVENANT I MADE IN SEPT. 18, 1983. I PRAY THAT HEAVENLY FATHER WILL STRENGHTEN MY DAILY TESTIMONY AND LEAD ME TO BE THE EXAMPLE TO MY CHILDREN AND TO OTHERS
