Hi I'm GAYMARIE

I grew up in the Philippines to a wonderful family. I love my family and i love being a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old. I just graduated in college this year. I finished a bachelors degree in business administration. I already got my mission call and I am very excited about it. I have an older brother, who is now a missionary, and a younger sister who is about 11 years younger than me. We grew in a simple living in a beautiful province in the Philippines. Our parents are both farmers. I love singing but I am not a good singer. I love reading books, playing with kids and watching church videos.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been baptized at the age of eight. As I grew in the Church, I gained a deeper understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Reading my own scriptures especially the Book of Mormon daily helped me a lot. Through my diligence in studying the Book of Mormon and pondering it with myself, I received the firm assurance of the Holy Ghost that the Jesus Christ is truly my Savior, that He and Heavenly Father love me so much and They are mindful of me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that it came from God; that Joseph Smith is true prophet of God. My family have been blessed because of the gospel of Jesus Christ that we came to know and love. I know that Heavenly Father wants our family to be sealed together for eternity. He wants us to return to His presence someday.

How I live my faith

I am a councilor to our branch young women presidency. I love the young women. I always encourage them to be good examples to their friends and families. At times, I serve as their older sister when they come to me and ask for advice about their problems. I am also a Primary teacher. I love teaching children. They are very precious to our Father in Heaven. They help me learn how to be patient and loving.
