Hi I'm Jem Basulgan

I'm from Philippines. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

I am Jeremay Marbella Basugan 3rd of the 5 covenant children; I'm a missionary ^^, Serving in Philippines Quezon City North Mission I'll be entering the MTC on August 16, 2013 I feel so blessed to be able to serve the Lord in His vineyard; I'm a lot into music, and dream to be a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir :) or to be able to write a EFY song.. yes, I write and compose songs, but I guess they need to be more of the Gospel right now ^_^ Three quotes that I like: "What e'er thou art, act well thy part" -from Sis. Dalton's talk last conference(April 2013) "While you're here, you're duty fulfill." -I made this up ^ ^v and "Fate is Never on my side, So I Learn to Trust in God." -JemBasulgan (I made this too)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I know God is our Heavenly Father, He loves us, and I love Him. I know Jesus Christ lives, He is our Savior, Creator, Lord, and Redeemer. I know the Holy Ghost is our Guide, Protector, and Comforter. I am happy that I was baptized in the church by my father, who has the proper authority and confirmed, and received the Gift of the Holy Ghost. and I keep myself worthy of its company. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. and he is His chosen instrument in restoring the Church. I know he saw a vision and he truly saw God and Jesus Christ in person. He knows it and God knows it. I know he translated the Book of Mormon with the Help and Power from God. and it is the most correct book upon the face of the earth. I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Kingdom of God restored on the Earth in this latter days. I know it because I have prayed to know it and I was answered. and I continue to know of its truth as I continue to live by my belief and knowledge. My faith increases, as well as my love for God, the Savior, the Gospel, and God's Children. My testimony deepens, as I strive to share the Gospel to everyone.

How I live my faith

I share the Gospel. :) I'm a ward missionary. I'm on a short term mission now. I'm waiting for my call as a full time missionary. I strive to obey the mission rules with exactness. :) I greet everyone we meet and try to share the gospel to everyone. I find opportunities to serve others. I'm trying to be like Jesus. I help my ward/branch in every way I can. I accept every calling the bishop/president gives me. I find and go to the church wherever I am. I honor my parents and love my family.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jem Basulgan
We can't force anyone to believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God once again established on earth and that Latter-Day Saints/ mormons belongs to this church. But rather, we invite all men to know for themselves if it's true, by reading the Book of Mormon, which is the divine witness of its truthfulness, having the fulness of the gospel, and then to ask God [not any man for men can lie] through sincere and faithful prayer. (James 1: 5-6; Moroni 10:4-5) I know they'll be answered because I've been answered and I know for myself that it is true. Show more Show less
