Why I am a Mormon

at age 4 i attended church with my Uncle and Aunt and Cousins at age 7 in a scripture class at school i felt heavily the comfort of knowing that Jesus Christ would accept me no matter my sort comings, i felt that day i fitted with Christ, i went home to ask could i go to Sunday school my parents let me go to the local Uniting church Sunday school. not long after that we moved to a small town called Currabubula in Northern NSW its Near Tamworth my cousins had moved there when i was 5 so i hadn't been to Church with them in a Long time a couple of years before my cousin Graham only a few years older than myself was Draged by a horse through rocky fields, star pickets, corner posts and was wrapped in barbed wire a dog had nipped the horse and graham had wrapped the bridle around his arm even though he had been told not to whilst his mother went to answer the phone. so it was that graham was in intensive care many clergy came and gave him blessings and prayed for him so the story goes his farther sat and knelled and sat some more by his bed side fasting and praying for many days i believe it to be 7 no sign of coming from his comma just supported by the machines. so it is i believe without a shadow of a doubt the faith then by my uncle the blessings he gave his son and those he received from other members of the Church is the reason Graham is alive today a father and a loving husband active in the gospel this is why i know without a shadow of a doubt this is the true church on the face of the earth today i know that through faith and love we can all overcome our trials and hardships that just like Graham who was once encased in plaster with calipers supporting his head can and will walk upright in the light of the lord. I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVES it is through this and the conformation of the HOLY GHOST that i know this is True.
