Hi I'm Elder Sueng Min Lee

I was born in South Korea. I'm currently serving as a missionary in the NY, NY South Mission. I love serving the Lord.

About Me

I'm currently 18 years old, but I'm turning 19 soon! I am currently serving in the NY, NY South Mission. I love serving the Lord and helping others feel the love of Christ. I love to swim and hike. I think the world that our Heavenly Father created for us is so wonderful. Playing guitar is my passion, and I love rock music. I love long naps and grilled cheeses.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were baptized when they were in Korea. They met missionaries when they were in high school and felt that this was the true church. Because of that, I was born into the church. Growing up, our family actively participated in church callings and helped out however we can. Although I wasn't sure. As I got older, I started to have doubts and frustrations. I grew to love science and math and the things that I can measure and see logically. God? I couldn't measure God. There was one things that was unmistakable: it's that when I had strayed from the path, I felt much more unhappy. The times when I felt alone and afraid were the times that I had turned my back on God. When I was ready, I realized that he'd always be reaching out to me. Someone I love once told me that simply opening the Book of Mormon will bring the spirit and that it is a gateway to a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. I've really felt that. As a missionary, there's no way I could survive out here in NY without the daily reassurance that I get. I know the Book of Mormon is true, I feel peace every time I open its pages.

How I live my faith

I guess I don't worry too much about how I live my faith because it's just become a part of who I am. There have been times where I haven't been involved, and I always find myself really missing the spirit that I feel as I serve the Lord. You can really tell when something's missing from your life, especially if it's God's presence. I do my best to let everyone know that they're children of God and that they have a purpose greater than they might think. A lot of people might think that the things that we do are crazy. But to be honest, I just do what makes me happy. That just happens to be living the gospel and serving others.

What is faith?

Elder Sueng Min Lee
They say faith can move mountains. For me, faith gets me out of my warm bed every morning. That's almost as impressive. It's what moves me to do good. Faith in Jesus Christ; that he lives and that his gospel has been restored. Faith is my trust in God. That He won't let me fall. And although I may stumble, He's always there to pick me up.
