Hi I'm Juvanie

"I'm from Naval Biliran Philppines...I'm A Mormon"

About Me

"I'm fun of reading books and especially, scriptures. I'm very interested in terms of church activities and meetings"

Why I am a Mormon

Why I choose to be a "mormon?" Because I found out in my self that there is a true church of God and I know for a surety that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of God here on earth having the power and authority of God, guiding through His living prophet Thomas S. Monson and His apostles. I always feel the presence of God through the Holy Spirit in His true church, in reading the scriptures such as the Bible and Book of Mormon. Evereytime I pray Heavenly Father answered me. Especially when i prayed " If Joseph Smith is the true prophet whom he choose to restore His gospel and If the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His true church"? And I know Heavenly Father answer me..because I really really feel it. I felt that my heart is full of joy, and I felt a peace of mind and my tears fall having joy..and i can't explain it to my self why I felt those kind of feelings,,,but my heart felt that it is came from God. I know for a surety that it is the true church an I know for my self that prophet Thomas S. Monson is the true living prophet of God. And i also know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lives, they love us so much, they always hears our prayers and I know my self and my life change only through the gospel of Jesus Christ taught by the missionaries to me. And I'm happy to live things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

"I really loved serving my fellow men,I'm always working with the missionaries, I'm now an assistant branch missionary and I am also called to teach the investigators every sunday's class. Sometimes I also organize events in the church such as combine youth and young single adult activity. And I also organize baptismal services."

What is the Book of Mormon?

Juvanie
The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. These prophets knew about Heavenly Father’s plan for His children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They recorded that Christ appeared, after His Resurrection, to the people in America, taught them His gospel, and formed His Church among them. The book contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, testifying of His Atonement and His love. It supports and verifies the Bible. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Juvanie
“We do not worship [Joseph Smith] the Prophet. We worship God our Eternal Father and the risen Lord Jesus Christ. But we acknowledge the Prophet; we proclaim him; we respect him; we reverence him as an instrument in the hands of the Almighty in restoring to the earth the ancient truths of the divine gospel, together with the priesthood through which the authority of God is exercised in the affairs of His Church and for the blessing of His people” Show more Show less
