Hi I'm John Soon

I grew up in Southern California and I have a Chinese Hawaiian descent. I am very proud of my heritage. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am about to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia mission. I am really excited to be able to serve the Lord and share the Gospel with everyone that I come in contact with. I love my family and also my extended family. In the Hawaiian culture Ohana is very important and I know if I ever need them or their help I can rely on them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I followed the promise in Moroni chapter 10. I read the book of Mormon and prayed earnestly and asked God to know if it was true. After that I felt different. I felt the warmth inside me and the overwhelming feelings of peace and joy. I knew then that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God and that He restored the Gospel to the earth. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's Church on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. My friends know that I am Mormon by my actions and they have my back when situations arise the do not fall in line with my standards. I also live it by reading and praying daily.
