Why I am a Mormon

I have been a searcher of religious and Spiritual truth for most of my life, and have had the privilege to know and learn from Jesuit, Dominican, and Franciscan monks,,, I have also been a member for a short time of the Seventh-Day Adventist church, and an adherent of the Mennonite Brethren Church, while my youthful best friend was a "Jehovah Witness" I became a Mormon, because I believe that Heavenly Father (God) did send people out of Jerusalem around 600 B.C, and they ended up on the Central American continent... the Kon-Tiki expedition of the 1950's proved that this was possible, and we also know that we had settlers in Northern Canada, from Greenland, many years ago.(Even during the last ice age there was a warm current passing by the coast, allowing travel on the West Coast, and we have archaeological evidence that there were people from China, and Africa, here long before Christopher Columbus). In addition, the Book of Mormon was written in a language we now call "Ancient Egyptian" which we now know was the language spoken in Jerusalem at that time, and until recently nobody in the world, and especially in the United States even knew of the existence of this language, so there was no way that in the 1800's, an uneducated boy could have invented this. In addition, even some of the witnesses who the Angel, showed the plates to and turned the pages so that they could see the hieroglyphics, even though they left the church NEVER ever recanted that they had seen the sacred plates and what was written on them. In the 1970's, a South African Professor of Languages who translated the Book of Mormon into Afrikaans, and who was one of the few world experts in "Ancient Egyptian" confirmed that this was a divinely inspired and written book.

How I live my faith

I have held a few "Callings" including Ward Clerk, and am presently the Assistant to the Ward Mission Leader. I am currently recovering from a bad case of Prostate Cancer, which was treated with Radiation Therapy, but expect to be fully mobile in a few months. I enjoy sailing with my son who is an avid large lake sailor, who sails out of Lake of the Woods, Ontario, and I hope to go sailing with him around August of this year
