Hi I'm Tyler Bak

I was an exchange student in Taiwan and speak mandarin Chinese. I like to play rugby. I'm a mormon

About Me

I recently just got done with my freshman year at Brigham Young University and I'm getting ready to serve my mission in Taiwan which starts in a couple days. I love Chinese culture, people, language and food! I also enjoy staying active and doing sports; especially rugby. I have two sisters one older and one younger and I live with my family in Minnesota.

Why I am a Mormon

This church is one of the only steady and firm things in my life. The world is always changing but Christ's church remains the same. By being a member of this church I have grown to know my savior and his atoning sacrifice for me. I feel peace and comfort knowing that someone understands what I am going through and is merciful. I also have grown to appreciate and develop a testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. Along with the bible it is the word of God and you need to read it to know for yourself. The knowledge of where I came from, why I am here and where I am going brings me comfort in this world of uncertainty. And finally by being a mormon I have the knowledge that I can be with my family forever. This is some good stuff!

How I live my faith

I'm serving my 2 year mission where I will be serving and preaching to others. I want to be able to bring happiness into people's lives just like the church has done for my own life. I think service and having a charitable heart are two of the most important parts of living my faith and I have been able to practice them through different organizations such as the boy scouts. I also try my best to see others the way our savior Jesus Christ sees them instead of assuming things based off of appearances.

Who are the Mormons?

Tyler Bak
Mormon is a nickname for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. We are christian and our faith revolves around the teachings of Jesus Christ. The mormon church was organized in 1830 and exists today with about 14 million members world wide. We have a modern day prophet by the name of Thomas S. Monson who leads and guides our church today similar to Moses and other ancient prophets. We got the nickname "mormon" because of the Church's belief in the Book of Mormon which is a record of God's dealings with the people in the Ancient Americas. Show more Show less
