Hi I'm Arthur

I grew up in North London. I have lived in Essex for 38 years. Love skiing and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in North London and moved to Essex 38 years ago. I was a TV engineer before moving to Ford to start up an Electronics workshop. While at Fords I completed my degree in engineering and helped to set up Electronics workshops throughout Europe. I am an amateur radio enthusiast, love fishing and skiing.I was a scout leader for 19 years and I have been married for 43 years to Pam and we have 5 children, 12 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife was taught by the missionaries first and asked me to listen to their message. I was very skeptical at first but remember driving to work one morning and realising that if what they told me was true I should do all I could to understand it fully. From that moment on I became very positive in my outlook to the church and was baptised soon after together with my wife. To understand where I came from, why I am here and where we go after this life has made such a change in my life. I have direction and purpose and love knowing that my heavenly father loves me that much that he sent his son to show the way to return to him. I love being a mormon.

How I live my faith

We retired seven years ago and fulfilled our dream of serving a full time mission for the church at the London Temple. It was an amazing experience and we learnt so much. We are now serving a two year mission at the Hyde Park Chapel Visitors Centre in London. It is wonderful having the opportunity to talk to people every day about the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have visitors to the centre from all over the world and although many are skeptical or misinformed when they come to the centre they leave with a warm feeling about the church and a better understanding of what life on this earth is really about. Since being baptised into the church we have not only attended church each Sunday we have enjoyed being at Church. We love meeting our friends and family at church and learn so much. I am really grateful to the wonderful missionaries who taught us about the gospel so long ago. We are still in touch with them and are lifetime friends.
