Hi I'm Lawrence Zhang

I joined the Church 2015 in Auckland New Zealand. I am preparing to serve a full-time mission.

About Me

I am the only child and only member of the family. There seemed always a help when I was little, I thought that was my dad, but my dad didn't admit that he helped me that way and also I don't think he could be able to help me that way(a really powerful and amazed way). I was baptized 2015 in a Pacific country. Since that, I found out who is the help since I was little. I'd spend hours in a stadium playing Ping-pong with my coach since I was around 8, I really enjoyed that sport. And the pool is another game that I really enjoy, also I found out that the second is a bit challenging to me, cause I have to be really calmed to play... Hiking is the one that brings benefits to both physical and spiritual health. Spiritually, I can see the great work of God and so on result in ponder to even the salvation of the Lord, physically breath in the fresh air and look far away or green... but I haven't found one to go with... (don't worry, I have potential on this) For now, I am doing IT programs in college, and currently, I found out that I love to disassemble mobiles and trying to detect and fix the problem. and also I have a great passion for Computer Science.

Why I am a Mormon

People are all supposed to be Mormons in these latter-days, but because God the heavenly father loves us so he keep the agency for each of us, and this is the reason why people are going different ways. But for me, I chose to live in God to be a Mormon is because I believe that Joseph Smith has restored the full gospel and the Holy Priesthood. And there is nothing more than what I have chosen to be one of the latter-day Saints, it brings me blessings and happiness the most. Through the gospel, I can see myself clearly, through the gospel, I can see where I am from and where I am going, it makes me overcome the fear of death, the gospel brings me to the Lord and God.

How I live my faith

His yoke is light, by walking his path and develop his attributes, his blessing is uncountable and great! I testify that he is God's begotten son, he loves us and always take care of us. By his salvation, I had "gone(go) and sin no more", and he is also the power of "sin no more" to me. I started to plan on reading the scriptures every day in the morning so the spirit will visit me, and I can distribute the light of Christ in my life to learn and practice his example. and humble myself befroe God is very important to me(anyone) but not easy, cause Lucifer is a hard worker, he's trying so hard to pull me away from God by letting me feel complacent. But by reading and practicing the words and obeying the commitments of God, I can fight Lucifer so I shall have eternal happiness by making the righteous decision and endure. Pray is a good way to nearer my God, by reporting what I have done in the day right and or wrong, I can have God's guidence to improve. the prayer is a bridge that connects my heart to God so I can have a great relationship with God. I can beg God to have the ability to over come the temptation or trials.
