Hi I'm Elder Sekhasimbe

I'm a Mormon from South Africa. Serving a mission for the Church in Cape Town.

About Me

I was baptised into the Church in the year 2007 after I was taught by missionaries who were referred to me by my aunt. I love music and anything literature-related like reading and writing. I love speaking also. I have grown a testimony of the truthfulness of the Church because I gave the missionaries a chance to teach me. They in-turn allowed me to pray about the truthfulness of the gospel with real intent and sincerity. The rest is history.

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a member of this Church because the Book of Mormon brought me closer to God than anything I can imagine. It is through it's teaching, along with the Bible that I have answers to my questions, questions of the soul. I am who I've chosen to become becuase of the great promises in store to all those who follow this path. I've prayed about it and even now I still ask God whether its all true, there is no moment when the confirming witness of the Holy Ghost hasn't been felt in my heart in positive reply to my enquiries.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the gospel to those willing to listen. I do this full-time as a missionary. My purpose is to invite others to receive the restored gospel of Jesus Christ through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. A part of my role is to visit members homes to strengthen their testimonies.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Elder Sekhasimbe
The welfare services of the Church is exclusively for the poor and the destitute. In order to retain their dignity, the Church also encourages the beneficiaries to work when appropriate. Heavenly Father condemns idleness and therefore the Church holds the principle of work as a high standard. It also assists where it can and where possible through the avenues of welfare services.
