Hi I'm Lok

I'm a Dad with a beautiful wife and five beautiful children. I'm a Mormon and I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I grew up in south-east South Australia, near Mount Gambier and had a wonderful childhood living on our small farm. I attended Primary and High School and then went on to University. In my early adult years I took 2 years off Uni and served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Perth, Western Australia. This was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Following my mission I completed my undergraduate course and I graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Management and now work in that area as an Environmental Consultant. I met and married my beautiful wife whilst finishing Uni. We started our family whilst we were both studying and nearly twelve years on we are now blessed with five beautiful children. I love the outdoors, bushwalking and camping.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (a Mormon) my whole life. I grew up with loving Parents who taught me the Gospel of Jesus Christ and provided an environment where I could find out for myself that the things that they were teaching me are true. I have found out for myself through the power of the Holy Ghost that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I believe that God is our loving Heavenly Father, who sent us here to Earth for a purpose. He has put in place a perfect plan of happiness, whereby we can learn in this life and come to know Him and has provided the way through the gift and life of His Son, Jesus Christ, for each of us to have peace and hope in this life and ultimately return to live with Him forever. I believe in Jesus Christ. He is the Son of God and is our Saviour and Redeemer, and because of His death and resurrection and personally taking upon himself our sins, grief, burdens, pains and sorrows we can be clean and have peace in this life. I have tasted and felt of His love for me and I know that He loves each of us. I believe that Jesus Christ restored His church to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and restored His gospel in its fullness in our time. I believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and with the Bible it adds another testament that Jesus Christ is our Saviour and Redeemer. The Gospel of Jesus Christ fills my life with peace. My life has not been immune from trials but because of my faith and hope in my Saviour Jesus Christ, I feel peace and look forward with hope to the future.

How I live my faith

I hope my life and the way I live is a testimony to others of my faith and belief in Jesus Christ. I strive to love everyone, and believe we should all treat each other with kindness, to be a little more patient and forgiving of each other. I try to find some quiet time each day to pray and read the scriptures and allow my Heavenly Father the opportunity to speak to me through the power of the Holy Ghost. I attend Church each Sunday and serve as a counsellor to the Bishop of our local congregation. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to serve, but I really enjoy attending Church because of the strength it gives me and the personal healing that comes from worshipping my Heavenly Father and the gift and life of My Saviour Jesus Christ.
