Hi I'm Rob

I grew up in Pasig City, Philippines and I am a teacher by profession. I love to meet other LDS members worldwide.

About Me

I'm single and I graduated with a degree in education. During my spare time, I love web browsing, listening to meaningful music. In addition, I have been working for so many years as a professional teacher here in the Philippines. Likewise, I do running, read short stories and novels in Filipino, English, and Spanish. I am passionate about the Spanish language and anything that has something to do with Hispanic culture.

Why I am a Mormon

It was December 13, 2013 when I first encountered the church. Months prior to that date, my relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ was really not good but there was this voice that kept on telling me and I believe it was the holy ghost. The holy ghost guided me and told me to search for the answers for the true and only living church through web browsing. Then, I typed on Google search, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and then the website appeared on the list so then I clicked on it and I read the information, I was really interested and felt something unexplainable inside of me. I sent a message to the website then days after I received a text message and an e-mail about my inquiry and then everything else just came in according to how Heavenly Father planned it. I am very thankful for that experience because I felt the love and I chose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it has made my relationship with Heavenly Father immense, ardent, and full of inspiration. In addition, I have learned to love, to live, and to keep my relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ always strong and alive. The church has made a tremendous impact on the way how I deal with myself and others and in a sense it has also made me optimistic in life and that in every storm at the end there will always be rainbow and calmness. Believing and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ is life changing for me.

How I live my faith

Being a new convert, I feel so much love by the people in the church and every Sunday I always look forward seeing them, worshiping with them, sharing my life, my joys, and my struggles in life. I feel a certain level of reward every time I serve the people of the church because it draws me closer to Heavenly Father.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity simply brings our relationship closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. There is a great responsibility that comes with everyone of us and it includes keeping ourselves not engaging in sexual activities not until we are legally married. Likewise, after we are married we should have sexual relations only with our husband or wife because Heavenly Father loves us so much he wants us to be safe, happy, feel peace, and always have self-respect. This also deepens love and protects the families. Breaking this law is serious but if you have broken it do not worry because through repentance and obedience you can gain forgiveness and peace. God wants the best for you and for all of His children. Following God's plan of reserving intimacy for marriage will help you and your family be happy. Show more Show less
