Hi I'm Gideon

I grew up in Kumasi, the capital of Ashanti in Ghana.I'm a happy Mormon.

About Me

As a high school graduate, I served a mission in the Benin Cotonu Mission. I'm currently a biology student at the University Of Ghana. If there is anything I love after religion and my family, then it is science! I love reading scientific journals, novels and talking with people.Most of the time, I prefer being quiet to think about nature and it's wonders. I grew up not being a Mormon but very religious because of the strict Adventist family I was born in to. As a young boy, I always yearned for opportunities to share the gospel and so it made more sense to me when I learnt after my conversion to the church that I could be a full-time missionary. I enjoyed my mission each day! There seems to be this great feeling of joy in me when I see others progress in the gospel and change their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Church Of Jesus Christ has been once again restored and this is his church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living a life full of charity and a life which allows me to enjoy both physical and spiritual blessings by obeying divinely instituted laws and the laws of my country. Since my conversion to the church, I have received many callings which has taught me the joy that comes from serving others.I often give devotionals in my classes in the mornings before class begins. I love all people and I try everyday to help people understand the wonderful plan our Heavenly Father has prepared for us to return back to him.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

I am glad to say that Mormon missionaries have the most wonderful message to humanity at this time of human existence. Their message is simple but very powerful, pure and true. They talk about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and how it can be a source of great joy for you in this life and how it can help you return to your dear loving Heavenly Father again after this mortal existence. Mormon missionaries are so wonderful that they talk about your family and how you can use the gospel to bless your family. They truly care about you and they are willing to pray for you and even help you in your garden if you need their help. They are so nice! Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Just as one needs authority to work in the name of a government to issue visas, so does one need authority of God to do baptisms. This is the decree of the Lord that all ordinances in his name be accomplished with his authority. No man can ever claim to accomplish ordinances, such as baptism, without the authority of God. If one succeeds to do the contrary then he is an IMPOSTOR! Show more Show less
