Hi I'm Dexter

I grew up in Philippines and I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I am a learner and I strive to follow Jesus Christ. I am inclined in abstract and visual arts, architecture and poetry. I love literature and I love sharing about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the plan behind all things - the plan of salvation / the plan of happiness / the plan of redemption. Everyone has an important role in this plan.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I gain this divine witness from the Holy Spirit... Just like everyone I also have fears in life. The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ helps me understand that part of the purposes we have in this mortal life is overcoming our fears and set our goals towards preparing to meet God of which this mortal probation is so designed for. I was a convert and at first I fear changing my religion because of the traditions and culture of my family. But then when I first got a testimony about the Church, following the invitation to ask of God if it is true (James 1:5; Moroni 10:3-4), I began to really know for myself that I have the agency to choose for myself, that I am responsible for the welfare of my salvation and know that God really wants us to be happy so He established His Church once again on earth for the fulfillment of His promises. I began to understand that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, receiving the gifts of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end is something that is essential for our salvation. Since then I strive to follow every lessons learned in the Church, line upon line, precept upon precept. I believe in the statement of Oliver Cowdery, one of the three witnesses of the Book of Mormon said, "... It contains the everlasting gospel, and comes in fulfillment of the revelations of John where it says he saw an angel come with the everlasting gospel to preach to every nation, tongue and people. It contains principles of salvation. And if you will walk by its light and obey its precepts you will be saved in the everlasting kingdom of God.".

How I live my faith

Whenever opportunity permits me I participate in various ways to serve in the Church such as home teaching, sharing a testimony, doing my family history work, attending church meetings and community service. These things helps me live my faith and gain knowledge of the work of our Master.
