Hi I'm Luke

I grew up in Runcorn. I enjoy football, movies and games. I am just like you and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in England my whole life. I was a privileged to be a missionary in the England London Mission, where I met a lot of wonderful people as I served the Lord for two years. I am a family orientated person and recently have been lucky to marry the love of my life. I currently work as a section leader or supervisor in retail. I have just passed my managerial assessment and I'm waiting to be appointed into a management position. I am working my way up the company as far as I am able to go, so I can provide the best for my family. I am huge football fan, I love playing the sport and watching it. Last year I had the opportunity to coach a under 18 football team. Helping them come second in the league. I also enjoy gaming, reading and watching movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. When I was a teenager I really started to question whether the church was for me. I am a very stubborn person and refuse to believe what people say to me. I would rather find out for myself. It all started when I was watching a film and I wanted to learn more about what I was watching. My advise would be if you want to know the truth go to the source in this case God. So that's what I did, I prayed to our Heavenly Father and I received an answer to my prayer. Now it wasn't a vision or voice. But the feelings I got in my heart and the thoughts that came into my head confirmed to me that the church was the church of God. This was the start of many experiences that continue in my life to confirm that the church of Jesus Christ is once again on the earth. The Book of Mormon is another witness of the Saviour, it is a true book from God and along with the Bible testifies of Christ. I know God loves each of us, He only wants the best for us and He has a plan for us. Because of this plan we know where we came from, why we are here, and where we go after this life. This truth was restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith and is continued to be taught today by living prophets and apostles. I urge all who have a desire to know the truth to read part of the Book of Mormon and pray and ask God is what they have read is true. I promise if you have desire to know the answer it will come because God always answers prayers and He will answer yours.

How I live my faith

I was a missionary in the England London Mission were I spent two years helping people physically and spiritually. As I worked with the members of the church in the areas I served I was able to see what a huge influence they can have on people's lives just by being an example. Since returning home I have been blessed to work with the 12-18 year old young men and women through youth programmes and as a teacher for an early morning seminary or scripture study class. We were able to assist in the community by doing service projects were we would offer assistance to a particular place and help them do things such as gardening, painting etc. I now have an amazing calling in church were I am able to assist the missionaries serving in this area. As the mission leader I get to be involved in the community a lot more because I am able to help the missionaries teach people who want to know about the church and help the missionaries as they help others in more physical ways. The best way I live my faith is by trying my hardest to be an good example. As I try to do that hopefully I will stand out from the crowd and when people ask why I can tell them. I'm a Mormon.
