Hi I'm Joequeen Zhang

I am from Guangzhou China.I love Chinese food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Joequeen. I was a student in BYUH. I love the weather and the beaches in Hawaii! Now, I am on my mission in Idaho Pocatello!!! I was able to serve part of my mission on Temple Square as well. I love Chinese food, and I miss it so much since I am on my mission. I had always thought about going on my mission after finishing school, but after the age-changed announcement came out, I choose to go on my mission immediately. I love my mission even though it's not easy. I have learnt so much on my mission. I know that my mission will change my life, my family right now, and my family in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom was the first one who joined the church in my family. Her boss is a member of the church. That's how my mom knew about the church even though she was in China. In 2006, my mom traveled to Korea and was baptized there. After coming back from Korea, she told me that she was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I thought my mom got crazy because in China we don't believe in God. I never thought that I would join any churches. However in 2009, my mom brought me to church for the first time and asked me to join the church. I don't know why I didn't say no to her. A week later, I was baptized in China without knowing anything about the church. After being baptized, I always felt like I was responsible to go to church and pray and read the scriptures. As I was doing these, I came to know who God is and my faith on Him just become stronger and stronger. I am so grateful for my mom who brought me to church and let me to have this true happiness in my life. I never feel regret about joining the church. I know that I have a lovely Heavenly Father who loves my so much and knows everything about me.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and read the scriptures everyday. I am trying to be a better person everyday, and to love the people around me. Just like everyone does, I have trials and challenges in my life. Even though sometimes my prayers would not be answered right away, I know that Heavenly Father is aware of me and each of His children. I just need to endure it well. I know that after every trial, we would always grow stronger and have greater faith in God."Wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith." (Ether 12:6)

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

When I pray, I can feel the spirit, which really tell me that God is there hearing my prayer. And the most exciting thing is God answers my prayer. He knows what I need the most, and I believe that He will lead me to the right path Show more Show less
