Hi I'm Sue
I'm a Mormon. I was born and grew up in Zimbabwe. I am a volunteer for the Zambia Scholarship fund.
I am a mother of 5 and a grandmother of 5. I loved being a stay at home mom, my kids were the center of my life. Now they are all grown and out of my home I work part time in my husbands chiropractic office, volunteer with the Zambia Scholarship fund which provides sponsors for children in Zambia to attend school, college and then provides teachers with jobs in rural villages. I also teach an early morning seminary class and love doing fun things with my grandkids
Why I am a Mormon
My mother was visited by the missionaries years before I was born. They gave her a Book of Mormon and asked her to pray about it which she did. She received such a powerful witness that she wanted to join the church. There were no other members in the town we lived in and my dad opposed her being baptized. Finally after 7 years of study, prayer and sharing her great new faith with others she was baptized and went on to raise her 7 children in the faith. Although we were very few in numbers in our little town we grew in faith and knowledge of the truth. We held meetings in our home and then in larger places as others joined. I knew from a very young age that the Church was true! It's hard to explain just how I knew, I just did. The strongest confirmation came for me when I was 17 and I felt like my whole body was flooded with an absolute knowledge that God was in the Heavens, that Jesus Christ was my Saviour and that there was a true and Living Prophet on the earth today. My father did not join the rest of the family for 50 years but 9 years ago he was baptized and 8 years ago we knelt around the alter in the temple as a family, all 9 of us and were sealed for eternity. What a glorious day.
How I live my faith
I LOVE the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We all have the opportunity to serve in the church. I have served as a leader of women, youth and children and am currently teaching an early morning scripture study class for youth of high school age. I have been doing this for 9 years now and I LOVE it. I meet with the youth early each morning before they go to school and we spend an hour studying the scriptures, the doctrines of the church and the words of living prophets. It is SUCH a great start to each day. The kids love it too. It is not unusual to get a posting on facebook on a day we don't hold class with them saying they REALLY missed seminary that day.
