Hi I'm Bob

I'm British, 71, & joined the Church in 1960. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father (5 children) and grandfather (11 grandchildren). My chief interest (outside the family & Church) are how things work & DIY. My job, before retiring, was electronics designer.

Why I am a Mormon

When I first heard about the Church I thought it sounded odd but harmless. After investigating I though it sounded exciting. Now I have been active in the Church for 50 years I think is is truly the work of God. It certainly is "to make bad men good & good men better".

How I live my faith

I am clerk of our branch of the Church and an assistant to our branch leader. We like to take part in service projects where needed.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Bob
We have long had the Bible but many books referred to in it are missing & much doctrine is lost or mistranslated. When I first read the Old Testament it seemed a mass of confusion but now I see it as teaching true principles & pointing to Christ & a better way of life. It soon became clear that we need revelation from God, both as a Church & individually. The additional scripture and modern revelation make God's plan for us clear & inspiring. Show more Show less
