Hi I'm Jean-ove Serva

I'm a Mormon born in Manila and raised in Caloocan.

About Me

I'm an avid video gamer and I love things that are tech. I used to play the guitar and play football (soccer). I used to study BS Computer Science but temporarily stopped to serve a mission. I will serve at Philippines Cavite Mission and will enter the MTC at September 8, 2017.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon since birth; my parents are both Mormons and they were married in the temple. I grew up in the same Ward and it always had been a part of me. The members of the church is a key factor on why I love being a Mormon. We are taught to be kind and love one another. The gospel of Jesus Christ shows his love for us.

How I live my faith

I've been an active member since I was born. I work with the missionaries regularly and I help some of my youth friends in their activities.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Jean-ove Serva
No, there are no restrictions. Everyone is equal in the church. There is no "you have to be this tall to enter" in the Church; the doors are always open to everyone. Your race or color is not relevant to the priesthood. An official declaration of the Church states, “every faithful, worthy man in the Church may receive the holy priesthood, with power to exercise its divine authority, and enjoy with his loved ones every blessing that flows therefrom, including the blessings of the temple. Accordingly, all worthy male members of the Church may be ordained to the priesthood without regard for race or color.” Show more Show less
