Hi I'm X ANGALA

I'm from the Philippines. I'm serving my mission in Australia Sydney South Mission.

About Me

I love playing Instruments like guitar and piano! I like singing as well but I'm not good at it. I like paying sports like basketball, soccer, ping pong and others. I grew up in a country town. I love living there. And I love my family so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in this church. But, I never truly believed on it. Because my Dad had a calling to church at that time. So, I just went with the flow. I often heard the members said that the Book of Mormon is true. I wasn't sure if it's true or not. But, I feel it's true. I remember one time, I went with missionaries to teach their investigator. Their investigator said that she read the Book of Mormon already cover to cover. After she said that, I just felt frustrated. I said," She's not a member, she read the book. I'm a member and I haven't read the Book of Mormon." After that, I decided to read the book. When I finished reading book, I felt so happy. I didn't know why. I asked God if it's true. He answered me yes through feelings of calmness and peace. Now, every time I read this book, I always feel happy and feel like I have a direction in life. And it helps me to know more about our Savior Jesus Christ and His Divinity. I testify that The Book of Mormon is true. I know that Joseph Smith is true. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by applying the things that I learned from scriptures. I like reading and listening to the talks of the church leaders. Because it helps me to deal with challenges in my life. I like the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Because for me this is the greatest gift that Heavenly Father given to us. Through this we can be able return to live with our Heavenly Father again as a FAMILY. Whenever I feel sad or disappointed, or whenever I have challenges, I always think about the Atonement. And I will comforted.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

X ANGALA
We can come know our Father in Heaven in having a desire to know Him. Sometimes it's hard to believe that there is a God. Because of many challenges and bad things that are happening in our lives. Sometimes we would ask why me. I can still remember my desire of knowing God. I asked if He is real, that I'm His son and that we are His children. I got on my knees. I asked Him specific questions if He is real and how can I know that surety that He loves. I remember after I asked those questions, I remember those peaceful feelings that I felt. It was overwhelming. I had tears on my eyes. After that moment, I can tell to the world that there is God. He is our loving Heavenly Father. He knows us personally inside and out. Show more Show less
