Hi I'm Pete

I grew up in Ghana but now the United States of America is my home, I am a mental health worker a family man and I am a mormon

About Me

I am a community mental health worker. Helping others is one thing i enjoy doing because i know as i help others i am helping God. Being a mental health worker in the Cincinnati area in Ohio is very challenging but I am constantly reminded that though its my profession, doing that faithfully will bring blessings to me, my family and those i serve. I enjoy playing soccer and mentor others in my leisure time. I am a father of two and a loving husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized as an infant in another church not knowing good from bad. My parents became members of the church before i turned eight. So i was baptized again and still remembers that special day. As i grew up in the church i started having questions and almost all my friends were non members. Many were those who told me that I was member because of my parents. I attended an institution where out of about 600 students, only 3 were members if the church. After a tutor took me to his office and spent about two hours talking to me about the need for me to quit the church, I challenged myself to know the truthfulness of the church. It took several readings and prayers for me to come to a conclusion that this is the Lord's church established once again upon the face of the earth with keys of the priesthood. This was manifested to me by the power of the Holy Ghost. Having gain this knowledge of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ once again upon the face of the earth, I was determined to let others know. My parents were surprised by my testimony and whenever I stood to share it, I saw tears from my mother's eyes. A year after I completed school I was able to go back to the institution to share my testimony to the tutor who did all he could to have me quit the church. The knowledge that I can be with my family again after this life if only i live the gospel is one of the many thing that make the church to true. I cannot bear not to see my loving family again.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the church as a counselor in the Sunday school in my ward. Some of my responsibilities include ensuring that each Sunday school class has a teacher and both members and investigators are thought the gospel of Jesus Christ. i take joy in knowing that everyone strives to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I constantly strive to live my faith by showing love to those I come in contact with and letting them know that God loves them.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Pete
our faith in Jesus Christ grows as we seek to lead by example as he did and love one another as he did. As we do these things we are nourishing that faith which came about as a result of our testimony of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Pete
The atonement of Jesus Christ is the shedding of innocent blood for the salvation of the human race. Christ death became necessary because the fall of Adam and Eve which brought about the separation of us God because of our sins and physical death. I am grateful to know that I can return to live with my Heavenly Father if i repent of my sins and make the atonement of Jesus Christ meaningful in my life. Show more Show less
