Hi I'm Boyd

I'm from the islands of the Philippines. I'm preparing to go on a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My father and mother is one of the leaders in our church. I have an older sister who is serving a mission in the Philippines and a few months from now i am going on a mission too. I have four siblings and i am the second child. I'm the tallest. I have a girlfriend who is studying in Brigham Young University. I love playing basketball. I eat a lot but i'm trying to do things like exercising because i'm starting to get bigger. My favorite desserts are cakes and ice creams.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents are members when i was born. They were married in the temple and we are sealed eternally as a family. I have been raised, supported and nurtured by my mother and father. They nurtured me well and i grew up in the church. I tried to be as obedient as i can in my childhood days. I respect my parents so much. My parents are not as successful in life but i love them, they taught us to be humble and obedient as we experience poverty. my spirituality was more nurtured with the teachings in our church like Sunday lessons, seminary, mutual activities. I saw leaders in our church and was inspired to follow them. I learned the principle of improvement and I tried emulating the lives of my leaders and parents and follow the patterns of life that they are following. each day i am striving to be like my leaders and parents and most especially like the savior. I am hoping that one day i will also become like them, especially, the savior. In the next few months i will be going on a mission and be a step closer in following the lord's footstep. I will be serving my mission. I am happy and excited to go and preach others the gospel i have recieved.

How I live my faith

I have two callings in my ward, the first one is a president of the young men of our church. I teach and help them prepare for their future responsibilities as a Latter-day Saint. I love serving them an i am striving to look for ways to make their youth days as enjoyable and spiritual as possible. the other one is that i am a technology specialist. i am to be responsible of all the technology of the church such as computers, microphones, satellite receivers. I also process missionary papers for applying missionaries.
