Hi I'm D.J. Sablan Jr.

I love music, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born on the beautiful island of Saipan. My mom is Filipino, and my dad is Chammorro. I graduated high school with the class of 2011, and I did a year and one quarter at Bellevue College. I love learning new skills! During my middle and high school years, I learned how to skateboard and breakdance as well as other types of dancing. I play the guitar, ukulele, and sing. I love to write my own music and perform and asipre to someday become a music producer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at the age of 8 one year after my dad's conversion. He was converted to the church after the tragic 9/11 happened. The missionaries taught him, and he was baptized. The day after he made his first trip to the temple, he was called into the bishopric as a 2nd counselor. I was 11 at that time, and by the time I was a freshman in high school, he was the bishop. He helped keep me on the path and helped me recognize the blessings that the gospel brings into my own life. He loved me and counseled with me as I struggled to keep myself above the many influences high school life had to offer. Although I was never always strong, I always believed. I always loved my Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ. I've always beleived that a greater power was watching over me. Some time passed after graduating, and I decided that I need to serve my mission. As I begin my mission, I only desire more and more to serve others. I want to help others know of Jesus Christ and of his truth and his divinity, and help them recieve the blessings that I have recieved.

How I live my faith

I am currently on my mission and have been called to serve in the Laoag, Phillipnes mission. I am in the Missionary Training Center learning the Tagalog language and new ways to help others come closer to Christ. As a new missionary, I have great hopes to be a good servant for other people in the places I have yet to serve.
