Hi I'm Kazuo Watanabe

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father, a husband, and a business person. I am a returned missionary. I enjoy traveling, gardening and listening to music. I enjoy spending time in nature such as mountains, oceans, rivers, and so forth.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church. I joined the Church when I was 20 years old. I was a university student at that time. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints over 30 years since then. What has been keeping me active in the Church is my belief and faith in our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus christ. The Heavenly Father and the Son know and love each one of us regardless of our circumstances.

How I live my faith

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have now the Church calling as a teacher for children of age between 10 and 11. This is a very challenging responsibility but the same time it is a good learning opportunity. I get to learn many things from them everytime I teach them the gospel principles. In a business field, you may think it would be very difficult sometimes to keep so-called "word of wisdom" by not drinking alchol while associating with your colleagues or customers but it is not so difficult in fact. You can build credibility by so doing. Since I believe as long as we keep the Lord's commandments and do things He wants us to do, the Lord will bless us, help us, and guide us to wade through difficult life challenges. Because I know the Lord knows each one of us and loves each one of us.
