Hi I'm Maggie Luo

I'm a missionary and I'm serving in England Manchester. I'm from China and I was baptized in London while I was living there.

About Me

I love reading books in various kinds, from business and management to arts and fashion. I love traveling. I love searching for new, inspiring, and fascinating things and ideas in life. I love to push the boundaries of positive possibilities. I am a life lover, a cat lover and an animal lover that's why I am a vegetarian!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a big convert for the church. That's why I am here to serve a mission and I would love to bring this great messages to everyone and help them to experience the happiness I experience. I knew this church through an acquaintance and I met the great sister missionaries through him. That was the darkest time in a happy girl’s life. It took me 1 year to get baptized because there were so many trails and challenges need to be sorted. Even though, that was a hard time and long suffering conversion process. I quit coffee, alcohol, tobacco, and unfaithful boyfriend, and unhappy job, and a lot other messes. Even now, I can clearly remember how I felt at that time, how God loves me and how his hands works on me, and how my Savior Jesus Christ helped me to take out the burdens in my life-bag piece by piece until I can stand with the confidence in my life again, and I know this confidence includes the confidence in God. I was not born in the Church and my parents don’t believe any sense of God like most of Chinese. I love my parents and they are the dearest friends of mine. My mom is a nurse and my dad is an inspiring teacher, educator and publisher. He devoted his life in Chinese Calligraphy training. I believe God gives everyone a chance to receive the Jesus Christ’s resorted gospel. My parents also have a change as long as I will be a good example for them. Now my mom is reading book of Mormon and pray daily, I believe one day, she will happily accept the baptism! I not only appreciate spending time with my friends and have a big laugh, but also enjoying the time alone when I walk along the Thames River alone and find a quite cafe to read books under the sunshine. London always rains, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ will keep you warm from the raining in your heart.

How I live my faith

I was in London Britannia ward. My calling was a Relief Society teacher! And I am a missionary for our church and serving in Manchester! I believe God has a plan for me and you. All the sisters and brothers , missionaries , bishop and senior missionaries here are so supportive and I love this community so much as well as this activities , institutes etc. , this is what we call the good fruits from the good tree! I believe God exist through recognizing the sweat fruits of his true gospel and his people , I love his plan and I follow the example of His Son Jesus Christ to keep his commandments and I received tremendous blessings to me and my family. My parents got baptized in London while they visited me a year after . And they were able to go back to my hometown-Xinyang from Henan province in China and gather with few other members there to build his kingdom. I used to work in fashion but I found out it is against my core believes and it is not in the harmony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so I turned it away and I am now a freelancer Mandarin private tutor in London and I love teaching and sharing wonderful things with people who is in need. I found I am much happier when you do things are right for you. I love reading Scriptures and I cannot wait to study my scriptures everyday when i get home, I also keep journals and I even wrote a blog for my Book of Mormon reading in 25 days last Christmas, that was a amazing and sweetest experience that I ever had. I know how strong the spirit could be when you seek the answer diligently and love God and Savior, keep his commandment, he will heal your soul Just like Alma said in Alma 36:19-21, he feels the pain no more, his should was filled with joy as exceeding as was my pain. And "there can be nothing so exquisite and sweet as was my joy. " This is how I live my faith, by praying and reading the scriptures, recognizing the spirit and act upon the prompting of the spirit. Most importantly, I share with it with others.
