Hi I'm Marius

I'm a Latter-Day Saint. I live in South Africa and I am a convert, was Baptized in East London in the year 2004.

About Me

I am a Father of 3 Beautiful children, Two girls and a boy, They are aged 21, 19 and 17 respectively. My Darling Wife (Amanda) who works as a Human Resources Manager/Receptionist has been instrumental in myself being Baptized in order to Baptize her and our children once I was ordained to the office of a Priest. I have my own Micro Business that provides for my Family. My occupation is : Locksmith (Not Registered or trading as one) So I am currently known as a Key-Cutter and a Shoe Repair Man (Cobbler).

Why I am a Mormon

It was fairly easy to have accepted the missionaries Teachings of the restored Gospel and the Restoration through the Prophet Joseph Smith and The Book of Mormon. I have always had a great Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and always knew that there is a God ! I have now a personal Relationship with God (Our Heavenly Father) and I have come to know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God and the most correct book to be found on the face of the earth. The Book of Mormon(another testament of Jesus Christ) has remarkably changed my Life and my Family. Through exact obedience to the teachings of the Book of Mormon and especially the Doctrine & Covenants we can perfect ourselves in Christ and increase our Faith and Knowledge of the restored Gospel. I testify that Jesus Christ is our Redeemer and our advocate, our Heavenly Father loves each and everyone on this Earth and wants us to re-unite with HIM in the Celestial Kingdom to have everlasting Life with Him and our Families. May we be obedient to the Commandments of Our father in Heaven and serve diligently now and endure to the end, may we increase our testimonies by serving and strive to live the life of a Latter-Day saint. May we ever be Worthy continually and visit the house of the Lord regularly and keep our sacred Covenants we make with our Heavenly Father. I do so humbly pray in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by serving others and being obedient to the Lord's Commandments. I live my Faith by daily scripture study and daily prayer. I live my Faith by magnifying my calling within the church and sustaining my leaders. I live my Faith by putting the Lord first in all I do and love my Family and hope to be sealed to each other for all time and eternity. I live my faith by being worthy and being Tithed. I live my faith by doing missionary work and proclaiming the restored Gospel to those who are trying to find the Truth. I live my Faith by being an example through my Righteous actions.
