Hi I'm Sam May

Born in India;Father with British, Mother with Hindu/Christian ancestries, raised 7th Day Adventist but now a Mormon.

About Me

Born in Bengaluru, India, to Father of British ancestry and Mother with Hindu/Christian backgrounds but grew up a Seventh Day Adventist. Became a member in high school (First to be baptized in Bengaluru, First LDS Branch also met in my Father's home), served a honorable mission in Northern California, and fully respect other religious beliefs. Happily married to my beautiful wife of 21 years and have great looking wonderful children. The Church plays a big part of my life because JESUS CHRIST is the head of this Church and led by a living Prophet. Family is the most important unit on this earth we get to take after this life is terminated. My educational backgrounds include Chemistry, Medical Science, Computer systems, and Legal. I work as Regulatory Consultant helping companies comply with Government Regulations especially those manufacturing healthcare products. I have gone through life's schools of hard knocks and still belive honesty and integrity will eventually pay off. I enjoy sports especially Football (American and Soccer) and love every minute spending time with my family and doing fun things. Someday, we hope to travel the world (especially to beautiful India) sharing our love and joy with others in living the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and fully believe beyond the shadow of doubt, that this is the same primitive Church that Jesus organised while in mortality. In this last dispensation, it has been restored to us in fullness through modern day revelations and prophets.

How I live my faith

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not Fear. I'm not perfect yet but lead a silent example by following the teachings of Jesus Christ and obeying his servants. In my home ward, I try to do my best as a Sunday School President to help members teach each other, and draw close to our Lord and Savior.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Sam May
We are all one big family because God created us in his own image. I truly believe just like each of us have earthly parents we also have heavenly parents. Those who seek to destroy families will answer to God both in this life and wrath of His judgment in the life after. Our families provide a setting for much of the growth we experience in life. In our families we love, serve, teach, and learn from each other. We share our joys and our sorrows. Family ties may bring us difficult challenges, but they also give us strength and some of our greatest happiness. The family is central to God’s plan for His children. It is also the central unit of society and the means for bringing children into the world where they can be loved, provided for, and taught truth and righteousness (see “The Family: A Proclamation to the World”). While we cannot choose the conditions of our birth, we can choose each day to make our families stronger and happier. It is possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally. Show more Show less
