Hi I'm Paul Friday Omo-Bamawo

I grew up in West Africa. I served a mission in the east of Nigeria. I'm a mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Paul, I work with adults with learning disabilities and complex needs in London. I enjoy football, partial towards Arsenal football club, tennis, basketball and track and fields. I enjoy cooking, playing music and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Before joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints I was an active member of another christian church. But I felt something was missing. There were questions about the true meaning of family, the true nature of God and the real reason I am here on this earth. Gaining the knowledge of the eternal nature of the family, and that my purpose on earth is to use my freedom of choice to choose to follow my saviour, Jesus Christ, by doing good and serving my fellow human beings to the best of my ability. I find joy each time I participate in service projects organized by the church in different parts of London. It is delightful to me seeing my children learn the act and value of service as they too join in the service projects. I know that God is my father in heaven, that Jesus Christ came to earth and atoned for my sins , so that I may have the chance to have eternal life, and that families can be together forever. This knowledge form the bases of my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ as taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - day Saints. I have tasted it, lived it and proved it for myself and I cannot deny the peace, comfort, unity,protection, joy and inspiration it gives me and my family.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I currently serve in a leadership position as well as a home teacher to several families in the area where I live. Working in the community services of a local council gives me the opportunity to help adults with disabilities to live and enjoy their lives from day to day, as well as assisting them to fulfill their potentials. The gospel principles, such as, faith, humility, patience, compassion, service, that I learn and teach each week help me to carry out my work with every sense of committment and dedication.
