Hi I'm John Carlo

I grew up in the land of hospitality, Philippines. I'm an artist. I like extreme adventures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm John Carlo. I'm from Philippines, a very nice archipelago in Southeast Asia. I'm an art enthusiast. I love extreme adventures, math, science, psychology and giving service. I'm an out-going person and I like meeting and befriending other people.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I became a Mormon, I love serving others, my father is seeking for the "true" religion and, then, someone referred us to the missionaries. They knocked on our door for many times and many weeks later we became converted, my whole family. It's not that simple. Lots of things happen. We've changed a lot of things and tried to do things we've never been doing before but it help us to become a better person than we were before. I like to make someone happy and ease someone's burdens. Because of the gospel, I come to know the importance of life and how it enlightens myself and my family as i go nearer to God. The atonement of Jesus Christ helped me to become a better person i am right now. Serving others is my passion and I want you to have the same thing: a mighty change of heart, a huge humble heart and a gigantic cheerful heart.

How I live my faith

I always attend church meetings and join activities with my fellow brethren and friends. I'm an assistant ward family history consultant. I'm the one you count on in your genealogies. I'm grateful and very eager to help everyone in need regarding the rich history of their family. I'm very enthused to serve as a full-time missionary, a minister of our church. I want to express my enormous gratitude for this great opportunity. I truly believe that Heavenly Father loves us so much that He gave His only begotten son for us to be save and be with Him someday, for eternity. By being worthy, faithful, diligent and prepared, I know that it will not only help me convert others unto Christ but it will also help myself be more converted unto Christ. I know the Church is true. I know that Prophet Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and he restored the gospel of Jesus Christ in this wonderful world. I will serve because I want them, nonmembers and members, to feel the same feeling of gratitude, happiness and love of having the gospel, the atonement of Jesus Christ, in theirs lives. I really love missionary work. I will never, ever, regret this marvelous work and never forget the miraculous memories I will be experiencing. I know that these glad tidings will really bless everyone's lives and my life too. I know that this is also my work and my glory to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?
