Hi I'm Elder Lee

I am a missionary serving in Ventura, California. I love the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Mormon church. Growing up I was taught the gospel. My parents are great examples to me. They are active, passionate members of the church. I played basketball and tennis for my high school teams. I think I always believed the LDS Church was true, but it wasn't until my junior year of high school that I became truly converted to the truth. As my prayer, scripture study, and journal writing became more meaningful, my personal testimony grew. As I asked God if it was all true, I was answered. I know that God had created us, that Jesus established his church and atoned for our sins, and that through Joseph Smith, Christ's church was restored. When I got the answers I was looking for, I tried to dedicate myself to the gospel. I have tried to study hard, serve others, and do what Jesus would do. I am serving a mission in Ventura, California. It is such a blessing to share the gospel with others. I know this church is true and I thank my Heavenly Father every day that I can be a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the true church of Jesus Christ. I have studied and prayed and lived it, and I have been answered so many times. Sometimes my answer has come by a feeling of comfort, or peace, or most often joy. Being a Mormon brings happiness, because those who do what Heavenly Father wants them to do will be blessed.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making it part of every decision and every moment of every day. Before I do anything, I first think about the eternal consequences. Will this help me to become the person I am trying to become? Is this what the Savior would do? Does this follow the commandments of God? Our existence is forever. This life is so important and it is crucial to do the best we can. I live my faith through the decisions that I make every day.
