Hi I'm Marcial III Alfaro Pongyan

I was born in the Philippines. I am a Mormon. I know it, I live it, I love it.

About Me

I am a sport-minded kind of guy. I dreamed of being a professional volleyball player. I joined varsity teams and had been a successful well trained player thus far. I also had the chance to play at collegiate level. but my mission will soon come. so I've decided to finish only 2 yrs course so that by the time I turned 18. I will be going on my mission. and I had receive and accepted my mission call. I will serve in the Philippines Cebu mission on the 5th day of August year 2016. And after my mission. I will study 4 yrs course and continue my dream.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is so happy. I am a child of record. And still continuing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because I know its true. Even though most of my friends are not Mormons. I am happy that they respect my decisions, because when they are your true friends, they will understand. and I am proud to be a Mormon. Because I know that families here can be together forever.

How I live my faith

as Prophet Nephi said. "having been born of goodly parents". I too am proud to say that I have been born of goodly parents. we are taught but not forced to obey the commandments of God. We went to church every Sunday and never missed a single Sunday. I graduated seminary with 3 gold scripture mastery award and 2 master scriptorian award. I am active at every activity in church. Every activity I am learning a new lesson. And sharing it when opportunity comes. I lived worthily my whole life and I am happy .

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Marcial III Alfaro Pongyan
In the days of Prophet Noah, Moses and other prophets that lived in the past generations . God chose them to lead, warn and exhort them to repent . Of course in our generation also needs a prophet. and his name is Prophet Thomas S. Monson. he has been chosen of God, by revelation and prayer. and he, like Prophets of old, receives revelation from God, to guide us back to the kingdom of God. Show more Show less
