Why I am a Mormon

This letter will talk about one of the happiest periods of my life. And about a decision that changed my life. Although I was born Buddhist I never went to a Buddhist temple neither believed in it. Sometimes my mom scolded me saying im bad for not going to the Buddhist temple. When I sat for my o/l exam most of my friends had threads that were chanted (Buddhist believe that you will get blessed if you wear them) on their hands but I never had one since I didn't believe. I used to have a lot of fun in my life. I have done a lot of crazy things with my friends. I enjoyed life in a very meaningless way. Now I know what is true happiness and the meaning of life. Also my mother who introduced me to the church. My mother has been researching about Christianity for a long time. She told me one day that she is going to check out Lional uncles church which is the the church of Jesus Christ of Lds. Uncle Lional is one of the oldest members in the church and one of my moms good friends. So my mother told me about this church and I was interested in visiting the church. It was in November during the district conference I went to church for the first time with my mom and sister. Everybody there welcomed us very warmly and I felt so much love, I felt like I was one of them. They were all very friendly. So that day, I met elder and sister porter. They are such awesome people. They knew how to love people. I felt so loved when I was around them. I felt so happy and light weighted when I was with them. Because of their love, I who refused to go to a Buddhist temple all my life, happily went to church. They also taught us many things as they taught the baptism lessons. We learned a lot from them. Whatever we asked they taught us very clearly. During this time I stayed away from my bad influential friends and we went to church whenever we could to listen to them and learn lessons. They taught us something new each time.

How I live my faith
