Hi I'm Haralds

I grew up in Latvia, Riga. I love animals, I like astronomy, I have studied programming. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved all kinds of animals - cats, dogs and every other kind of animal. I like astronomy, I don't have any special education in it but I have always been interested in our Universe - the size of it, how many astonishing things it contains - stars, planets, galaxies, the huge number of all of them and that is only the part we have already discovered, it makes me think about God and how amazing his creations are. I have studied information technology (programming). I like to play video games when I have free time as well as to spend some time having a walk relaxing. I like to watch new movies, especially sci-fi ones. I try to live my life according to good values - to be honest to others, to always try to improve myself, to use my time to help others.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a part of this church has greatly helped me to be a better person, I have gained to desire to help others and to be more like Jesus was and I am feeling more happy doing it with every day. By following His gospel I feel peace, I know that if I keep going down this path I will be able to be happy in this live, as well as to be happy with my family after this life. I am very grateful for the testamony I have and for the experiences I have had in my life that have brought me to where I am right now.

How I live my faith

I have 2 official callings in my ward: 1) I am responsible for preparing the sacrament on Sundays - it helps me to remember what Jesus did for us and how his sacrifice can help us improve ourselves. 2)I am the ward clerk - this calling let's me have the oppurtunities to help others and I have learned to love spending my time for others sake doing this calling. I like to help our missionaries with their lessons for people interested in our church, I love to testify to them how God has helped me in my life and to let them know how much he can help them.
