Hi I'm John

I am a Medical Laboratory Science student. I love painting, calligraphy, cooking and reading books. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Medical Laboratory student, and I enjoy reading, painting, calligraphy, and cooking. I am a big fan of J.K. Rowling, John Green, and Dan Brown. I also do painting and I am currently practicing water color. Salvador Dali is one of my favorite painters and the Persistence of Memory is my favorite artwork. I also enjoy travelling; I love to see the different parts of the world and experience new things in different communities.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and two sisters were converted to the church first; then I was born six years later, which means I was born as a Mormon. But even if I was born as a Mormon and I grew up in the Church, I still believe that everyone still needs to be converted. Before getting baptized, I was asked a couple of questions about my faith in God and was asked to bare my testimony. I am a Mormon not only because I was born in this Church, but also because I know with all my heart that God loves us, and that He wants us back in His presence; that He sacrificed His only begotten Son so that we could be saved. I know that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saint, I can do what the Lord has commanded me and that I can fulfill my covenants with Him. I also know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God, that through Him the true Church was restored and that Book of Mormon was translated correctly. I also know that the Book of Mormon is a word of God; together with the Bible, they testifies of Jesus Christ and supports the fullness of His Gospel.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the Church wanting to serve a mission. When I was still a primary, I really love the song "I hope they call me on a mission", hoping that one day, when I am old enough, I could serve the Lord as a Full-time Missionary. The whole time during my youth or when I was part of the young men, I was either the president or a councilor of a quorum. I accepted the challenge to be a leader of a group because I know that by serving my fellow young men, I also am serving the Lord. This time, I am already 18 years old, I am all ready to serve a full-time Mission; and in a couple of months, I will be leaving my family and my home to go and and serve God and His children.
