Hi I'm Purevsuren

I am from Mongolia. I travelled to France and Germany when I was 12. I did an internship in Lima, Peru. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love music and dance. I learned to dance when I was six. I do Mongolian dance and ethnic dances around the world. When I was eight, I learned how to play the piano. I learned how to play the flute at age 13. This year I started my new journey with violin. I hope to learn more musical instruments later. I especially enjoy playing musical instruments for my mom who first encouraged me to take music lessons at an early age. I also like to play basketball, tennis, and ping-pong. My recent passion is to learn different cultures, languages, and people of the world.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a young girl, my dad passed away due to a car accident. It was the most difficult time for my family especially for my mother. Sister missionaries taught my family about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I remembered the lesson that the missionaries taught us about God's "Plan of Salvation" and I felt strongly to tell my mom that we would meet my dad someday. I am grateful to know that I will meet with my dad after this life and that my family will be united in the eternal life. I believe that my daddy always watches after me and that he is very proud of me being a member of this wonderful church because I am learning how to live a righteous life and I am being a good daughter to my parents. I love the gospel so much because it brings me joy and happiness. I have a testimony that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true because I read the scriptures and prayed for myself. I have a strong testimony that the gospel strengthens family relationships because it did mine. Family is very important in my culture, and I am grateful to know that my family relationship has become stronger because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the gospel I learned how to love, serve, and give sacrifices to my family and friends. I know that my family and friends who have the gospel do the same to me and people around me. The gospel of Jesus Christ has to be true because it teaches moral values. The gospel teaches me how to be a good person and citizen of the world. Everything is possible for God!

How I live my faith

One of the blessings that I received from my church leader was that I would serve in the church in different callings. That blessing came true as I received various callings from being a pianist/organist to becoming a leader in different capacities. What I liked about each service was that I always worked with people from many different backgrounds. I learned how to talk and interact with different types of people. Because of my service to people, my life has been blessed in many ways. I have faith in God that He will continually support me when I serve people around me. I know this because God always helped me when I needed His help and He taught me how to serve His children. I love this gospel because its main goal is to bring people to Jesus Christ and learn from Christ's examples as we love and serve people we care about.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

My faith in Jesus Christ increased through my scripture readings, prayers, and the Holy Ghost. Life is not perfect and easy because I face small or big challenges as I grow older. But I know that I am not alone because I have faith in Jesus Christ who will help me overcome life difficult challenges. Over the years I actually like facing challenges because I feel that I can become wiser when I make decisions and most importantly I can become closer to my brother, Jesus. Having faith requires a desire and action. I never had negative experiences when I had faith in Christ, but I did have some negative experiences when I did not have enough faith in Christ. Because I have experienced both negative and positive effects, I know how it feels to have faith in Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
