Hi I'm Gordon

I grew up in Slough in the UK, my mother met the missionaries and joined the church four years before I was born.

About Me

I am father to four children, three boys and a girl with ages ranging from 5 to 25. Married to Carolina who is originally from Peru in South America. My house always seems full kids having fun, and the smells of amazing South American cooking. For the last 15 years I have been working with, in, or around computers and information technology, with a particular specialism in Information Security. My work is technology focused but ultimately I am out an about helping and meeting new people. I regularly play 5-a-side football and love doing so, I enjoy the competitive nature and the physical exercise it provides. When I have the time I get outdoors on my mountain bike and love the rush of hacking through the woods.

Why I am a Mormon

As a child growing up and regularly attending church I didn't fully understand what it meant to be a Mormon, as a result in my teens I stopped attending church. After feeling my life didn't have direction, and following the example of some great people I started going to church again in my early twenties. I have no doubt that since making that decision to return to church my life, and the lives of my family have been blessed. I know when I follow the principles taught by my Savior Jesus Christ, and strive to be like Him I experience immeasurable joy and happiness as an individual, as a father and husband. The beauty of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that everyone who desires to experience this joy and happiness can.

How I live my faith

I am a great believer that everyone has something to contribute to society, and am always looking for opportunities to help others. I volunteer at church where I organize a group of men, our aim is to help these men develop spiritual aspects of their lives. Regularly as a group we provide help and assistance to those who are unable to do things for themselves. For example shifting furniture, mowing lawns or simply spending time with people are just a few of the things we do.
