Hi I'm Jan Lei Ungos

I was born and raised in Cavite, Philippines. I started Project A for kids under difficult circumstances. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am youngest in the family, with an older sister and a half-brother. In 2017, I graduated from one of the oldest Catholic universities in Asia, University of Santo Tomas with a degree in Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts. I am also an advocate of refugees and very much fascinated with history and 'man' in general.

Why I am a Mormon

In 1998, I was a year old, when our family converted to the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It took more than a decade before my dad said 'yes' to a baptismal date. Although, his parents and siblings have already converted many years ago before we did, it was my mom who felt that we needed to get baptized and know more of the Gospel. My dad quit his vices soon after our conversion and he just became so much of a better husband, father and son. Our family stayed faithfully in the Church since then. We also got sealed for time and in all eternity few months after our baptism. My whole life I have been studying and pondering over the teachings of the Church and every time I would feel how true the teachings are. I just feel strongly in my heart and soul that these teachings are the same things Christ taught when He was on earth. I have a testimony that Prophet Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that he was a wonderful and faithful man who had let God make him an instrument for restoration. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the restored church of the Savior built thousands of years ago. The Holy Spirit have confirmed these things in my heart and I would live carrying these truths in me forever.

How I live my faith

I was 18 years old when I was called as a secretary of our stake's young women organization. I helped out in planning girls camp, youth conferences and other social activities. I also teach 12-13 year old young women of our ward about the restored Gospel. Two years ago, I also started Project A, a small community of volunteers that create simple events for kids under difficult circumstances.
