Hi I'm Nathan

I live in New Zealand, married with four kids, work as a AV systems designer at the University of Canterbury, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a audio visual space and systems technical architect and have been at the University of Canterbury for over 10 years working with computers and audio visual technologies. I have always had a passion for computers at an early age. I have a wonderful wife who I married in 2002 and we now currently have four kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS (Mormon) because I believe that God still loves His children and that in today's world, more than ever, we need Him in our lives! I know that a God who has always followed a pattern of revealing His truths and guiding His children through this difficult life would not leave us helpless to find our way through this life, hoping to find the right 'opinion' of his word out of thousands of beliefs and interpretations. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and that He has called prophets in our times just as He did in biblical times. Why wouldn't He? We need His direct guidance now more than this world ever has! I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet just like Moses was, and that our current prophet Thomas S. Monson is too. I have earned these beliefs through careful study of both the Book of Mormon and the Bible and through sincere prayer to our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in my church as the Branch President of a growing unit and it is wonderful to be able to help and serve others around me. This church is the centre of my life and for me an essential lifestyle. My faith is my life. Through the years I have remained active in different callings that have been given to me to teach, lead, and instruct other members and investigators.
