Hi I'm Sammy

I'm a full-time missionary serving in Taiwan. I love people, books, theatre, and music. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a third culture kid, which means I lived most of my life outside of my own country. My family is American, but I was born in Hong Kong and raised in Singapore. I attended a year of school at BYU-Hawaii where I'm studying English and Theatre. My favorite thing in the world is to tell stories, and I love being able to explore different stories through books and theatre. I love to write and I'm also a musical theatre nerd. I'm currently serving a full-time mission in Taichung, Taiwan!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because, many years ago in Jerusalem, the Savior of the world died for me. It's so crazy for me to think about sometimes. The Lord gave His life for me because He loves me. He is my Savior and Redeemer. He is my best friend and gave His life so that I could live. Serving him and spreading the gospel is my way of thanking Him for all He has given me. I have so much to be grateful for, most especially a kind Father in Heaven. I am a Mormon because this gospel is my light. It has brought me so much peace and joy in my life. My biggest source of happiness comes from this gospel. I am a Mormon because I believe God loves all His children. I believe He has put this gospel on the earth as a way for us to grow and progress and become better people, so that we may return to live with Him someday. I want to do all I can to reach that goal and to help others along the way.

How I live my faith

In just a few days I will be embarking on a full-time mission to serve the Lord. I will be sharing the gospel in Taichung Taiwan, a place where I have never been and don't know the language. I will leave my family for 18 months and will have no communication with them other than weekly emails. I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't have absolute faith that this gospel is true. I want to be able to share this joy I have with others. I know the Lord loves me and will watch over me. I have gained a personal witness and testimony that this gospel is true. I have read the Book of Mormon and felt God's love, and I know it is truly the word of God. I'm so excited to share His gospel with the world!
