Hi I'm Karlmaine Revillo

I'm from the Philippines. I've been called to serve in the Philippines Laoag Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm Karlmaine and I love to cook! I am a sophomore at BYU-Idaho and absolutely love it up there! I am from the Philippines but currently living in Singapore due to my dad's job. However, will be moving back to the Philippines because of my parent's new calling as mission presidents for the Quezon City Philippines Mission. I am so proud of them!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I love the church, I love the gospel. Without it, I wouldn't know where I would be right now. I want to live with Heavenly Father and his son again. I know my purpose here on Earth, and where I would go thereafter. I know I am a daughter of God, and that he knows my struggles and concerns. I know that he loves me and that he would never leave me alone. Without the gospel, I would be lost. I know that this church is true and that the Book of Mormon is true. Also, I know that President Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet on Earth today and that he receives revelations up to this day.

How I live my faith

I'm a Mormon, I know it, I live it, and I love it. Visiting teaching is a great opportunity to teach others more about the gospel. It is a great way to get to know each other more and to let them know that we care for them and love them. For me, it has been a great blessing to go visiting teaching and teach the assigned topic each month. Though it may be a hassle sometimes, due to busy schedules, I still find a time to visit teach and in the end gives me a warm feeling inside telling me that I've done something good and helped a person. It really makes your day just knowing that you've helped someone.

What is being a Mormon like?

Karlmaine Revillo
Being a Mormon can have its ups and downs. It depends on how you stand up for your beliefs. Having a firm testimony in the Gospel of Jesus Christ helps tremendously. Having that firm testimony helps you become the person you never thought you'd be. God is not asking us to be perfect, but he wants us to try our best to be perfect. Show more Show less
