Hi I'm Jared Dato-on

Im from Toronto Canada. I am Filipino.I am serving in the Colorado Denver North Mission.I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a very out going person, i enjoy the company of friends and Family. I enjoy spending my time keeping active. I like to play volleyball and basketball, i am a certified lifegaurd. I am the oldest of three, i have a younger sister and brother who i love very much. My Family is the most important thing to me and i hold them close to my heart. I would not have the faith i do today without the trials i have endured with them. Through what we have experienced we have grown to be a tight family unit. Their love and support has saved me and has helped developed me to who i have become to this day.

Why I am a Mormon

As i grew up in the church i never really understood why my parents decided to raise me in the Church. For the Majority of my life, I was Loved by goodly parents. It really hit me when my mom got sick i was 13 then. I really relied on my parents faith. I remember speaking with my grandfather, who was the first to convert to the Church. And he said i have to pray and plead with Heavenly Father. I had to Fully turn myself over to the Lord and trust that he knew what was best for us. I have then become strong with the church and my faith because of my family. I would not have been able to do this without the knowledge and love of my Heavenly Father. I see the fullness of this gospel, and how much happiness it has brought to my family, i see how it has blessed my life and i see how it has diminished in others. I love this gospel so much, i promised Heavenly Father to share and help others get a opportunity to hear of his truth and to help find those who are ready to hear it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service, currently i am serving the Lord as his missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I have been called by a Prophet of God to serve in Denver Colorado's North Mission. I serve faithfully and with Love for my fellow man. Service is one that is done out of Love through all the members. I take honor in any service i may be able to be called to. I know that we were all together before this life on earth, and i made a promise to my brothers and sisters in Denver that i would seek them out and bring them to know of the Love our father in heaven has for each of us. My faith has enabled me to go about my days with a smile. Knowing that the Lord is always watching over me, he continues to strengthen my faith by all that he blesses me with. My faith has always been tested, and i am grateful to the Lord for my trails, that have been for my greater good. And have allowed me to rely on the Lord everyday of my Life. I am now putting my faith into work, as a Missionary. I love this gospel and as a missionary it is required of me to testify of the things i know to be true. And if their is one thing i know in all 21 years of my life, is that i am so sure of the truthfulness of this gospel and how it has affected my life. I know i can walk with my head held high and know that i am doing what the Lord expects of me. I live the way that our father in heaven would have for me. I know and experienced the blessings that come from it. Because i have felt his love, and the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and because i love all of my brothers and sisters, i serve them and love them, and share with them what has brought me so much happiness in my life. I live my faith by serving others.
