Hi I'm Jas

I am a Fiilpina. I am a mormon.

About Me

Mabuhay! I’m Jas, 21. I'm the only daughter in our family. I have two brothers: the eldest served a mission in Jakarta and the youngest will apply for his mission next year. We are all members of the church and I'm grateful to serve a mission in Bangkok this coming December 2017. I love the Philippines. I have graduated from college in 2016 and I currently work at a university. Im planning to study again when I get back from my mission... we’ll see! I love playing piano, guitar, and ukulele. I also love playing tennis and other sports. I’m into reading books, listening to music, cooking, hiking and swimming! I have a dog named Grover and he’s the most amazing thing eveeeer!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were already members of the church when I was born. I grew up in the church. I am grateful for the testimony that I have. My beliefs were very much different compared to when I was Younger. I know that the Church is true. I am a mormon because I know it is true. I felt it and I am grateful to share the Gospel to other people.

How I live my faith

I was baptized in 2004 and I'm grateful as I continue to study the gospel. I'm now preparing to serve a full-time mission. Every morning, before I go to work, I teach seminarians. This year, we have the Book of Mormon to study. I admire my students as they are really dedicated to wake up as early as 5am to attend seminary.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jas
The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. These prophets knew about Heavenly Father’s plan for His children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They recorded that Christ appeared, after His Resurrection, to the people in America, taught them His gospel, and formed His Church among them. The book contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, testifying of His Atonement and His love. It supports and verifies the Bible. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise that those who read it and sincerely pray about it can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4). Show more Show less
