Hi I'm Jazreel

I was born and grew up in the Philippines. I'm a Mormon. I am nice and willing to meet people and to have friends with.

About Me

I am now serving as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I'm currently serving in the Philippines Quezon City Mission. I'm ready and willing to share to Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the world. I would like to share some of my hobbies, talents and interest. I love playing piano, and to play Hymns, I did my best in playing Hymns to invite the presence of the Holy Ghost and inspire the listeners. I am interested to learn the history of the church, so I search up inspiring articles that would help me learn more. I love to study Science and Technology, I can appreciate the wisdom of God by studying these subjects and it keeps inspiring me. I love to watch movies from the big animation and production companies just like Dream Works, Disney Pixar, Marvel Studios, Sony Pictures, Blue Sky, Warner Bros., Metro Goldwyn Mayer, and many more, but I carefully choose what movies will I watch to maintain my standards. After mission I would like to work with these industries.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother and father are members of the church before I was born, so I was born and grow up in the church. I am eager to continue to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ, because it was taught by my parents and I have gained my own testimony. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and that He lives today. I feel His love for me because He is the only way that I can receive eternal life and be sealed with my family. I'm grateful that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for I feel Christ's love in this church. As I grow up in the church my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ also grows and I encourage myself to study the His Gospel and His teachings, for it is the very thing a member of His church will do. Being a Mormon, LDS, or member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints requires faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, and receiving the ordinances of salvation. Full-time missionaries like me, are helping people to declare this message in the way of the Savior. We willingly sacrifice our time from our family, school, jobs, or other opportunities to lose ourselves in the service of God, for we know this is a serious work of the Lord. As member of His church and as a disciple of Jesus Christ, I will help to gather His people by helping them to willingly accept and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and prepare themselves to receive the blessings of salvation.

How I live my faith

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that we all have a Father in Heaven who truly loves us. I have a firm testimony that Jesus Christ atoned and died for our sins that we may have the opportunity to repent and to be forgiven, and He was resurrected and lived forever that we may have eternal life and have the opportunity to be like Him. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and it is the Word of God. I testify that Joseph Smith Jr. is a true Prophet of God, he restores the Kingdom of God in this last dispensation, he translated the Book of Mormon under the direction of God, and he sealed his blood that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live. I know that God calls prophets and apostles to establish and organize His church. I know that God speaks today through His living prophets and He reveal His will and purposes through them. I believe if we made an effort to study the Gospel of Jesus Christ and apply it in our lives, we will be more prepared to receive the blessings from our Father in Heaven. It is my task as a member of His church to preach His Gospel to every kindred, tongues, and people. I live my faith, as Elder David A. Bednar counseled, that we should strive to really know Jesus Christ, and not only know about Him. Sometimes I felt the burdens of my transgression, but I never lose hope from the Savior and I made an effort to repent and ask for forgiveness. I encourage myself not to abuse my Moral Agency, and always invite the assistance and inspiration of the Holy Ghost to help me decide carefully and righteously. I do not boast myself about what I learned in the Church of God, I only boast that Jesus Christ lives today.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Live worthily in this world that you may avoid sins. Pray intently for your desires, and you can feel the love of Heavenly Father. Read the things concerning Heavenly Father and in his son Jesus Christ that you may gain testimony and feel the Spirit that whispers you that Heavenly Father always guide you on your path to the truth. I testify to you that reading and studying the scriptures especially the Book of Mormon leads you the truth of all things which you are desiring and then you can feel on your bosom that you accomplish what you desire. Share you testimony to your family, friends and neighbors about the things you learned to become closer to our Father in Heaven and feel his presence always. I hope this simple messages and things to do can help everyone to know about the greatness of Heavenly Father. Thank you very much. Show more Show less
