Hi I'm William LeFevre

I love Japan! I enjoy sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 21 years old. I grew up near Seattle, Washington. I have 6 siblings, two of which are married. One has a daughter and the other a son and two daughters. My family has various hobbies, but we all enjoy music and playing sports, especially volleyball, with other people. I also enjoy spending time with friends, especially doing things outside such as sports and bikeriding. Some hobbies I enjoy doing are video games, glowsticking, sports - such as soccer, volleyball, tennis, and ping-pong - and hanging out with my family. I'm in Tokyo right now serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ brings me peace, joy, hope, and strength in this life. I was lucky enough to be born into the church of Jesus Christ and blessed with a great family whose examples I could follow. Over the years, I have come to know for myself that this is God's true, living church. Through following the things that I have learned in this church, I have developed a relationship with God and a faith in Jesus Christ that has immensely shaped who I am. I am able to always overcome any hardship or trial placed in my life by relying on God and following Jesus Christ. This gospel gives me the desire and motivation to be better and the means with which I can do so. I owe all of my happiness and who I am today to this gospel that was restored by God's prophet, Joseph Smith, and is recorded in the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I'm teaching the people in the Kanto region of Japan about Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon. I try my best to be an example of Jesus Christ and live as He did. I am thankful for this opportunity to invite everyone to come unto Christ. I am strengthened in my relationship with God as I keep His commandments, study His words, and strive to follow His Son.
