I did serve as a Branch President,in the Windhoek Branch, Namibia, was realesed in 2006, when I moved to one of our coastal town,Swakopmund in Namibia. I love music and do enjoy singing, and did my training in Opera.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young married couple, from a different religion Methodist & Catholic background, my wife & I were searching for the truth. We prayed to our FATHER to bless us with a church, which will fill our needs, the hunger that we felt at that moment. One evening, I was out practicing Sports Volleyball, my wife was alone with our firstborn, when there was a knock on the door. She opened the door, and find these two Young men in front of her they introduced themselves, whereby she extend an invitation to them to come inside, but they suggested to make an appointment for the next evening. On my arrival home, I felt something special, I immediately discover the joy & excitement in my wife, and she shared with me the news. The next evening the two young men came for their promised visit. During the first discussion I was touched, I was overwhelmed with an indescribable joy and excitement, my eyes was filled with tears, tears of joy & happiness. After they shared their message, they asked us if we have any question, I then told them that they have just filled our souls with joy, because I know that gospel that have shared with us is true. Never in my life did I feel that happiness & joy that I felt that night and I knew that GOD has answered our prayers. We were baptized in September,1994 and was sealed in December 1999, at the Johannesburg South Africa Temple

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

A Healthy body accommodates a healthy spirit and a clean mind. Our body is the temple of God we are taught in the scriptures that GOD does not dwell in unholy Temples Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

We must have faith in the LORD, JESUS CHRIST.He was the Great Jehovah of the Old Testament, the Messiah of the New Testament. Under the direction of our Heavenly FATHER, JESUS CHRIST was the creator of the earth. “All things were made by him and without him was not any thing made that was made” John 1:3. Though sinless, JESUS was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. JESUS set the example for us and HE entreated all to follow HIS example.He was the Firstborn of the Father, the Only Begotten Son in the flesh, the Redeemer of the world. Show more Show less
