Hi I'm Zia

I am from the Philippines. I love doing things pertaining the church teachings. I'm a Mormon and I'm proud of what I am.

About Me

I am a college student student right now. I am already 25 years old and a graduating student,I may add.I don't have part-time jobs and I chose to work in the family history center. I want to focus my life more on what I believe (being a mormon) because that belief saves me a lot of times especially in the hardest time.

Why I am a Mormon

As I was saying, I am a ward missionary until this present time. The bishop of my ward told us(with the other called ward missionaries) that this calling is a lifetime unless you applied as a full-time missionary then you will be release and become a missionary in some other place.Before, I got this calling I was once a youth sunday school teacher. Honestly, that was hard for me.Why? because it is not really easy teaching if you dont mind teaching. As simple as, you cant teach without teaching yourself first, through studying. I did not took that calling seriously, i wasn't being honest about myself and thats makes me uncomfortable. So, I decided to be release from my calling. But, I know God truly loves us so instead of letting me out of the circle he finds me a certain calling that could fit to me.And how does it happen?One of the member of the church caught my attention, she is a return missionary she served at Iloilo Mission. she is this common girl,and that makes us very much alike.She told me of how and what it is like to be a missionary.She teaches me almost everything my queries,and even my slightest doubt.Another reason is coming from the boy of our ward, he is now serving a mission.He motivates me to go further and inspires me by showing his good side. He is a perfect picture for an ideal eternal companion I might say,but i know I can't determine what God plans for me and I love to accept whatever He prepare for me.I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lives,they just prove us through surviving each day of our life.I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and because of him we have this gospel through the restoration of it for this dispensation.I know that we have this living prophet Pres. Thomas S. Monsoon and he gives us direction like a compass,to sustain our temporal and spiritual needs in this life.I know that the Book of Mormon is true I read it and was moved by it.I know that the church is true, without it I am nowhere.

How I live my faith

I was baptized since I was eight but I did not become active since then. However, when I turned 20 I decided to change my life course. I attended the church meetings, activities, and other events in short, I make myself turned to Him again. This time, my life was truly changed think of those magical moments in the fairytale then, the experience were like that. For about 4 years of being active in the church, I never been this attached until I was called as the ward missionary in the local church where I belong. I enjoyed a lot being in this calling it gives me more reasons to dig deep more and discover a lot of being a mormon.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Zia
For me, it was the greatest event ever happen for all mankind. No one ever can do that only Him, who is our Savior can. It was and is necessary for all of us,both living and the death benefits the sacrifice of our Savior. Because of His atonement we are enjoying this life, free to live and to choose what life we want to. From that also, we are freely can join Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ when time comes only if we are worthy enough and did do things and continue to do it whatever He wants us to do.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Zia
It is another testament of Jesus Christ. It signifies that there is another group of people in old America who pursues the belief unto our Lord. This book changes many lives it inspires,motivates,educate and let us be more cheerful of this life we have. Show more Show less
