Hi I'm Daniel Cho

I was born in South Korea. I immigrated to America. I am a California Fresno missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play the guitar. I was even a band when I was younger, but it wasn't any thing big. It was just a couple of my friends and I having fun. I love watching movies! My dad, my brother, and I used to watch movies really often! One of my favorite things to do is go watch movies at movie theaters! I love being with people and making them laugh! My dream job would consist of me being with people and socializing with them! I feel that many people in the world see members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as really uptight and boring. That couldn't be further from the truth. I love having fun and being me and I know Heavenly Father and Our Savior Jesus Christ are completely happy with that because they want nothing more than to see us happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Before I was converted, neither God or Jesus Christ never really played a role in my life. I went to a baptist church, but I never really had a strong relationship with Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ. Plus, before I was converted I really had no strong desire to follow God or Jesus Christ. I really enjoyed evil things, and didn't really want to change. Then, my dad started to seek the missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because he loved the teachings of the Church among other reasons. So my dad decided to convert to the Church, so I did too. I didn't really think much about it. I just did. So that doesn't sound all that miraculous. But that's not all. Strangely, after my baptism, my desires changed. My life really turned around. And now looking back, I know that it was the Atonement of Our Savior Jesus Christ. I was born of God as it is mentioned in the Book of Mormon. I still had things I had to work on, but it was different this time. I truly wanted to change. Now, my life is in line with the will of Our Heavenly Father and Our Savior. I know they live and they love me. I've felt their love for me; I have literally felt it. I know God is Our Heavenly Father. I know Our Heavenly Father and Our Savior Jesus Christ live and love me. I know the Book of Mormon is true. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true Church of Jesus Christ. I know serving a mission is what Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ want me to do. And the amazing thing about the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that you don't have to believe everything that I've just written. You yourself can know all these things are true. Just find some missionaries in your area. You won't be disappointed as long you keep your heart open and do your part.

How I live my faith

God, or Our Heavenly Father, and Our Savior Jesus Christ guide my life. I avoid things that are not in line with the laws and will of Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know they live and love me, and I act and think according to that knowledge. I go to church every Sunday, and I was and am very much involved with church. I pray multiple time everyday. I know Heavenly Father wants to hear from us through prayer because prayer is a way to literally converse with Him. I've been working on making prayer a conversation, rather than a mindless list of things I'm grateful for and for things that I request. A modern day prophet named Gordon B. Hinckley put it this way: "The trouble with most of our prayers is that we give them as if we were picking up the telephone and ordering groceries - we place our orders and hang up." That is so true! I know with all my heart that Heavenly Father is not a mindless being, but rather a loving FATHER, who has feelings. I'm working on making my prayers very personal and intimate. I want to pray as if my Father in Heaven is standing right in front of me. All this may sound like I'm so "good" but the fact of the matter is, we members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are actually normal people. We all make mistakes, and we all sin. But I choose to repent for my sins, and I strive to do better next time. I know I cannot be perfect in this life, but I know without a doubt that because Jesus Christ suffered and died for me, He will make up for my shortcomings. I currently am serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the California Fresno mission. I am so grateful for this once in a lifetime opportunity that I have been blessed with to help and guide my brothers and sisters come to Jesus Christ.
