Hi I'm Yaqub Masih

I grew up in Punjab India.I came to United Kingdom in 1969.I am married with 7 grandchildren. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 69 years old and retired. I am very much interested in studying the world major religions. To me they all testify about same God and same truth. I am also interested in herbal remedies. And sometimes, I make my own herbal remedies, and share with other peoples without any charge.

Why I am a Mormon

I am going to tell you how I came to know about the Mormon church. An Englishman who I worked with introduced the Mormon church to me. In the beginning I couldn't understand the things about the Mormon church and the only thing I could understand was a visible change in him. That was an open gospel to me,that helped me to look into the Mormon faith. My friend invited me to the Mormon church service and I liked it very much. I must admit,I had never experienced or seen anything like this in any of the churches I had ever been to. O! it was out of this world. I wondered what kind of Bible they read in the service,because it was very uplifting. The people of the church were very welcoming and friendly. Being my first time, I could not understand lot of the things going on in the church meetings. Coming away from the meeting, I was looking forward to attend the next meeting. meanwhile, my friend gave me some of the Mormon literature to read which I enjoyed reading. He asked me if I liked the missionaries to come to my house to teach me the gospel. After few persistent efforts I consented for that. The missionaries came and started to teach me and my family about Pre-Earth Life or where did we come from? why are we here upon this earth? and where do we go after this life.? This was very impressive,because no other christian church ever touched upon these questions. The answers to these questions were shown to me from the Holy Bible, and the Book of Mormon. It made sense to me. Another thing which impressed me was the HEALTH CODE OR WORD OF WISDOM which the Mormons practiced. According to this law of heath given by the Lord we should not use any harmful drugs such as tobacco, alcohol,tea and coffee etc. I was so glad that there was such a church which taught such principles to the people. I always knew that these narcotics were no good for the body and church people were helpful and supportive to me to eradicate my smoking and drinking habits. I feel emancipated now.

How I live my faith

My religion is a daily living thing. since, I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of lds, I have a daily program of personal scriptures study which include Bible, the Book of Mormon and other Asian holy books such as Geeta of the Hindus, Gurbani of the Sikhs. With the help of Holy Ghost I have managed to understand the deeper and hidden meanings of holy scriptures. I hold the priesthood of God,which allows me to do Lord's work and serve others. I help the the missionaries in teaching the gospel to Asian people, since I am from India and I can help people whose first language is Punjabi,Hindi, Gujarati or Urdu. I also translate gospel pamphlets in Asian languages and share with investigators. It deepens and enhances my testimony and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Yaqub Masih
There is no other religion which gives clear and meaningful answer to the question " what is the purpose of this life?" The restored Church of Jesus Christ had answered this for me when I first looked into the Mormon faith.As a matter of fact, I enjoyed every doctrines and principles taught by the Church.
