Hi I'm John Kim Savedra

I came from Philippines. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hey. I'm John Kim from the Philippines. I love to read church magazines and scriptures everyday. I stopped schooling in college for a while to be a missionary . I am currently serving here in Philippines Legazpi Mission (the best mission). Playing my guitar is one of my hobby aside from eating and playing computer. I love rock musics. That is all about me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents do. I grew in this church since my infant years up to now. In spite of that, I gain my own testimony when I'm 15 years old as i started to read the Book of Mormon seriously. I'm very grateful to my parents and to the elders who brought our family to light and to strait and narrow path. So now I decide to serve a mission to pay it forward to those who are seeking this truth. I know it is the only restored church with Jesus Christ as its head.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participating in any activities in the church. I am not yet a leader so the best thing I do is to suggest activities that will meet the needs of each member and by sustaining them as leaders. I like to work with our great missionaries in our ward. I also do hometeaching with my companions. Now I am a missionary helping the people to come unto Christ

How does the Church finance its operations?

John Kim Savedra
The Church finances its operation through the tithes of its members. Tithes are the 10% of our income to be given voluntarily by us. But it has a deeper meaning or concept in paying tithes. We believe that by obeying this law, we can show our obedience and faith to Jesus Christ and that He will open the windows of heaven and pour down blessings that there will not be room enough to receive them (Malachi 3:8-10).
