Hi I'm Amanda Loh

I love the beauty of this world. I like to laugh and I love spending time with loved ones. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Geography student in university, but I am currently taking 18 months off to volunteer as a missionary in the England Manchester Mission which covers the northwest part of the United Kingdom. I love meeting people from all over the world! I enjoy learning different languages as well. I speak English, Mandarin, Cantonese and a little bit of Japanese. I love watching different TV shows from all over the world. That's where my interests in different languages developed I guess. I was also raised in a home that spoke multiple languages every day; it was way fun growing up in my family :) Some of my greatest joys in life come from being able to spend time with my family and friends and helping those around me. I love spending quiet weekends at home with my family and just playing board games or watching movies together. There is just so much joy in spending those moments together. I also love reading and singing. I love listening to songs that I've grown up with, especially musicals and Disney songs. I enjoy listening to catchy tunes too, but nothing beats songs that have a memory you can attach them to.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church with a family based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. I was taught to believe in God and know that we are all children of God, that He loves us, and we have the potential to be like Him. There came to a time when I needed to know for myself if all that I was taught was true. I knelt and prayed sincerely to God and asked if He really was there, if He was listening to me, and if He loved me. I felt a warm feeling of comfort and peace, which helped me understand that God was answering my prayer and that He truly loves me. By becoming closer to God, we will be able to understand what will bring us the most happiness in our lives as we listen to Him and follow Christ's example.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving the people around me and helping others to the best of my ability. Right now, I volunteer as a missionary for my church by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with people I meet. There is just so much joy that comes as we watch people changing and gaining a closer relationship with God. I have realised how much our loving Heavenly Father has helped me in my life and I have experienced many blessings by living the gospel and following His guidance. God's plan of happiness is also an important message that we share and my own knowledge of that plan has blessed me so much in my life by helping me feel peace and comfort during the most troubling times in life. That is why it is important for me to share this message with other people as I know how much happier they could be when they are able to learn of God's plan of happiness for us.
