Hi I'm Hau

I was born in Vietnam. I now live in the United States. I am a pharmacist, a husband, a father and a Mormon.

About Me

My family moved from Vietnam to the United States in 1975 at the end of the Vietnam war. I have lived in the United States since then. I have a doctoral degree in pharmacy and currently work as a senior director of pharmacy operations where I manage the prescription drug benefits for my company's plan members. I enjoy many outdoor recreational activities such as running, biking, and hiking. I love spending time with my family. We like to play board games, ski, bike, explore the trails near our home and vacationing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was first introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints while in high school. I noticed that classmates who were members of the church often conducted their lives with a high standard. They were kind, accepting, helpful and honest and genuinely happy. These friends invited me to attend church service and read the Book of Mormon. I also met with missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I always felt a peace and assurance when I participated in these activities. Ultimately, I prayed and received a personally confirmation from Heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost that what I feel were true and I accepted baptism. I continue to pray daily and find strength through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I look forward to each Sunday when I can attend my local church congregation ("ward"). As I worship and participate in the Sacramental service, my spirit is lifted and my faith in Jesus Christ is strengthened. I also learn more about the Savior and His Atonement through many opportunities to serve others in my congregation. I have taught and participated in our congregation's weekly Sunday gospel classes. I regularly visit and in turn visited by fellow congregation members as part of a program called "home teaching" where we check on and share spiritual messages to one another in our homes. My family strives to read from the Book of Mormon and pray together on a daily basis. Doing so has greatly blessed us to find peace and guidance in our daily activities.
