Hi I'm Theary Leng

I'm from Kampong Cham, Cambodia. I graduated from College. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and grew up in Cambodia. I am just a simple country girl. I love cooking. I love working outdoor under the hot sun. I love hanging out with young men and young women in my District (like Stake but it's smaller). I love to serve in the church in every calling I can. I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Hawaii Honolulu Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Raising in Cambodia, we don't really have a lot of understanding about Jesus Christ because we are not growing in the Christian background. It's not so easy for us to change our belief, but by studying and praying to God taking the invitation of Moroni in the Book of Mormon, Moroni 10:3-5, to God. We got the confirmation that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true and living church of Jesus Christ on the earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It has blessed my life so much. I have seen a lot of miracles in my life by applying the teachings of Jesus Christ which contain in the Book of Mormon. I know through Jesus Christ I can be perfected I have faith in Him and follow Him. I know He died for all of us. I know His atoning sacrifice can heal us from everything. I love being a Mormon. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know God lives, and I know Jesus Christ is the son of God and the Savior of the world.

How I live my faith

We read in the Book of Mormon, Alma 32:21 and Ether 12:6, faith is not a perfect knowledge. Faith is a thing that you hope for which are not seen, but it's true. Faith is active not passive. I strive each day to be active, so my faith can grow more stronger and stronger. I love to serve people around me. by serving others, I learn to realize how much God loves them. I am happy when I can serve others and bring them closer to God, help them to understand about their purposes in life, and the potential they have which God has given to them. By losing myself in the service of others, I find myself in the service of God. I am so glad to see how God works through me to help others come closer to Him by faith I have in Him. I am striving each day the best I can to live my faith in Jesus Christ by keeping His commandments and serving others, even in the small and simple way.
