Hi I'm Elijah

Im a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in the Philippines and I have a huge family! Being the youngest of 7 is fun but tiring too! They always ask me to take care of my nephews and nieces so now I can say that I'm an "expert" at changing diapers. I spent my spare time in computer games. I'm talkative and I usually hang out with my friends and like to do wholesome activities. I'm taking up BS Pharmacy but decided to stop for a while to serve my Savior as a full-time missionary for two years.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I came to earth my family was already Mormon so I was born and raised in the gospel. So the gospel is very familiar to me. I have always been taught by my parents that this is the truth. I never disagreed though and I always felt good every time we went to church and prayed as a family but there came a time when I really wanted to know for myself if what they taught me was really true or not. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it to our Father in Heaven and through the Holy Ghost I know that the church is true! Because the Book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

I am now serving as a full-time missionary in the California San Diego Mission and I live my faith by doing my best to emulate the example of Jesus Christ and by living my life according to the harmony of His teachings. Also by reading the scriptures daily as well as praying and going to church every Sunday. As a missionary, I live my faith by sharing the gospel to anyone that we pass by along the street.
