Hi I'm Martin

I'm from Manchester in the UK. I've been a member for three years.

About Me

I married my wife almost three years ago and we were quickly blessed with a little boy. I work in IT for a University. I'm a big Manchester United fan. I also love all types of music and enjoy going to quizzes with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I met my wife online about four years ago. She has been a member all her life whereas I knew nothing about the church. I started coming out to church with her and was impressed with how welcoming everyone was. I enjoyed participating in activities and it just felt right, so after a while and once I was invited to be baptised by the missionaries it felt the right thing to do. I was baptised in 2010 and I have felt my life be blessed by it.

How I live my faith

Soon after being baptised I was called to work with the youth in our ward. This was a great opportunity to learn about my new faith with the youth of the church. I was also involved in organising activities for our ward along with my wife, the most successful probably being our Caribbean summer activity. We moved to a new area last year and I have been called as the Clerk for this ward, I am responsible for ensuring our records are correct and up-to-date. I enjoy getting involved in activities, especially when singing is involved! Whether that's singing as part of a band in activities (Usually Oasis!) or as part of choirs for Christmas concerts and the like.
