Hi I'm Francis Adjei Akporh

I am from Ghana and I love it here. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I just got done doing my national service. I was assigned to teach one of the rural schools here and it was a wonderful experience for me. At home I love to do the cooking and the laundry- I hope some day I can put that on my resume :) I love to play the piano and soccer as often as I can. My major is Business Administration. I choose BYUI because it's one of the few colleges that can challenge me to grow both intellectually and spiritually. I smile and laugh, because I want to enjoy all the time I am given and make a difference in others lives, in the knowledge that every single individual is UNIQUE and loved. No one, and I mean no one, is better.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that our Heavenly Father lives and his son, Jesus Christ, came to atone for our sins because of the love He has for us. I know he lives. He has restored His original church here on earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and has also restored the Priesthood keys. We have a living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, who continues to lead this Church. He receives revelations from our Heavenly Father for the Church. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

As the Young Men President in my ward, I have a responsibility of helping all my young men to fulfill their duty to God. My counselor and I meet to plan every week to make this responsibility meaningful to the lives of this young men. They are awesome! As the ward organist, I am always excited to play the hymns on Sundays, and practice with the ward and the Stake choir on Tuesdays and Thursdays respectively. I also teach Sunday school youth class and sometimes adult class. My preparation for every class has helped me to better understand the doctrine of Christ and my purpose here on earth.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?
