Hi I'm Leizel

I'm a Convert from Cebu,Philippines.The restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is God's Eternal Plan Of Happiness for ALL His Children:)

About Me

I grew up in the Philippines my whole life.I definitely believed in GOD growing up! I love going church a lot.There were times that I was unease with the questions that I had for a long time and no one really seems to answer those for me.I knew and felt something was missing in my life,I just have no idea what it is so I keep going but I feel like I don't belong here in this life at all but I still pray to GOD everyday. Last 2009,I went to my hometown together with my sister, to meet my relatives there especially I've missed my hometown so much and I wanted to see my childhood friends as well.My Aunt which I never knew that she was a mormon lived there,well for quiet sometime I actually have no intention to be converted at all but the more I listened to the missionaries,I felt that it all make sense and the Gospel seems so entertaining to me then by and by I felt that burning desire to learn more.So since that time I investigated the church later on I got baptized, I am so happy with my life right now, it's so nice to be able to feel the spirit.Truly having the knowledge that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me dearly,knows me perfectly,cares about me, who's always patient with my shortcomings,and who's there for me whenever I needed help is a very tremendous blessing.It's really comforting that He has a plan for me and He wants me to return to live in His presence someday;if I continue to endure every single day through living all of the requirements that He has given me.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a mormon because I love serving God and I love His Gospel and it really blessed my life.And I know that GOD loves me so much and I love HIM too and I know that His Son Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer.As long as I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and continue keeping God's commandments,I'll be able to return to live in their presence someday and it's possible because of Jesus Christ and The Plan of Salvation of our Heavenly Father which is the Eternal Plan of Happiness for all of God's children.This Gospel really brought me so much PEACE, COMFORT and HOPE that I'll be able to see my parents again and also my brother who passed away many years ago because of Heavenly Father's LOVE for us it's possible. I bear my testimony that the Book of Mormon is true without a shadow of doubt and I can't deny the fact that I receive a witness that Heavenly Father answers my prayers by the Holy Ghost.And whatever we ask God as long as it's out of a sincere and righteous desire,He will give it to you and that's His promise to all that asks Him.I know that He loves us so much,He knows us perfectly,He knows our specific needs,He cares about us and He is there for us always.

How I live my faith

I love serving God so I was the Single Adults Representative ages 18 and above who were not yet married and I also serve as the First Counselor in the Young Women Presidency before I left on a mission.And we do a lot of activities for our Youth and SA.It's fun to serve other people and that's what we are suppose to do. I'm also a missionary for my Savior Jesus Christ right now serving in NEW JERSEY.Serving as a missionary is the best time for me,it's a once in a life time opportunity and I'm really enjoying it! I love the people I served with,meeting new people everyday is quiet fun.New Jersey is great,a mix culture,people moved in and out and everything.I love it!

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Leizel
Eternal Life is the ultimate goal that we wanted to be because we know that this life is not the end and it would pass away.Eternal life is basically living with our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ forever.It's not easy to get there,there's a lot of requirements and one of them is our "Righteousness".And for us to do that we need to accept the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and live it until the end of our lives.Keeping every single commandment that Heavenly Father has given us especially the Latter-Day revelations that the Prophet Joseph Smith received pertaining our days. We can't live in their presence if we're not doing everything that we can because there's "No Unclean Thing can Dwell in God's presence" and if we are prepared "We shall not Fear". Show more Show less
