Hi I'm Andrew

I use a wheelchair to get around. I grow my own food. I cook food from scratch and I smile a lot. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single man about forty years of age. I broke my back when I was eighteen years old. I use a wheelchair to get around. I had joined The Chrurch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints about a month before. I try to grow my own food in my gardens. I play a roleplaying game called Dungeons & Dragons with my friends. I love cooking and bake my own bread and most other foods from scratch.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the Holy Ghost. I recognised the impression He made upon me and I followed. A friend of a friend described the church and I asked if I could go along. They said, 'Yes.' They carried on describing more of it and I asked if I could go that Sunday, they said ,'Yes.' again. I didn't investigate the church to start off with. I just enjoyed learning and understanding. A few weeks later I invited the Missionaries to teach me. The feeling I had when I first heard the church described I recognised and knew that it was right.

How I live my faith

I have a personal testimony of Jesus Christ, of Heavenly Father and of the Holy Ghost. I try to spend a lot of time praying and understanding what they would have me do. A lot of my time is trying to recognise, everyday, the little things that I can do around me that are good, that bless peoples lives. It is not always easy but it always rewarding and that hopefully for those people. It's not very often that it comes along but teaching about the truth is very valuable to me. This helps friends come unto Christ and recieve more joy for themselves.

Who are the Mormons?

Mormons are people who accept Joseph Smith as a prophet of God and that through him the Church of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth. They accept the Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ. They accept the prophets and apostles that have been called since Joseph Smith. They follow the Prophets and Apostles on the earth today. President Thomas S. Monson leads the church today with continuing revelation. Show more Show less
