Hi I'm Jeremiah Thee

I was born and raised in a small town of Laie, HI. I am a student at BYU and I'm a lover of sports and e-sports.

About Me

Before I tell you who I am I just want to let you know that I take pride in the ability to be average at many things and to be able to adapt the any situations. Knowing that I can now tell you a few things about me. I spent to strait years in the Dominican Republic, where I preached my faith and learned the spanish language. I love playing all kind of sports, tennis, football, basketball, or soccer. There is nothing better to do on a Saturday to wake up to a day full of action packed college football or a night cheering on the Cougars at LaVell Edwards Stadium. I am a nerd. Just saying. I am currently majoring in Information Technology at BYU. I love working with computers and teaching people how to use them and helping fix their frustrating technology problems. One thing that most people don't know about me is that I'm a fan and supporter of Esports, namely professional Call of Duty. Yes, by that I mean video games. I support the professional competitive Call of Duty team, Optic Gaming. Just like you might be a fan of and NBA or NFL, I support this team as they try to be the best and win tournaments that are worth thousands of dollars. But with all that said, I try to keep my life UNBALANCED, meaning I put the Lord and my Faith first, and I know everything else will fall into place.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, firstly, because of my loving parents accepting the Gospel and their willingness in teaching me as I grew up. I am not here by accident. My dad is from the country of Malaysia and my mom is from Arizona. They met on the most isolated place on earth, relative to the nearest continent. My dad was the first member baptized in his entire country where chapels, missionaries, and the church didn't really exist. They met, and had me and my siblings and all because of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This is no coincidence. But being raised in a faith is one thing, but finding out if its the truth is another. I took it upon myself to find out for myself to know if what I had been taught and living for my whole life was true. I studied and prayed about the teaching of the Church and about the Book of Mormon. The Church teach that we should not rely on the testimony or beliefs of others, but that we should ask God the source of all truth what is true or not. I was a sceptic at first thinking that God wouldn't answer me. But finally I needed to know if I was living a lie or not. I knelt down and asked God if the Book of Mormon and the Church I'd been living were true. I received an answer and feeling from the Holy Ghost a feeling I never felt before in my life. I knew then and now that its true, all of it. Not because my parents or Church leaders brainwashed me to believe but because God and His Holy Spirit had told me.

How I live my faith

I served, like most young mormon men, a 2 year mission. For those 2 years I preached my beliefs and I learned for myself the truthfulness of the gospel and most importantly that God's hand is in the lives of all his children. Being back from that 2 year experience, I am trying to live what I preached for two years. The responsibility or calling that I have in my congregation is a fellowship committee member. As a committee we welcome in new members to our congregation and make sure that everyone feels included and comfortable. We spend our time helping those who have gone astray remember their commitments to our Heavenly Father. I try to be an example to those around me and to remember that I am a representative of Jesus Christ and what means to be a Christian.
