Hi I'm FRANCIS ADJABENG

I grew up in Ghana, with Bachelors from Ghana Baptist University, and Diploma in Education from University Education of Winneba.

About Me

I'm a convert to the church, baptized on JUNE 30TH, 2014. I'm an English major who is also studying Spanish. I enjoy anything that has to do with culture. I love to read The Harry Potter series, and anything by Mormon library! Holidays are my favorite I love to over decorate for all of them. I'm a huge fan of horses, mountains, and the ocean. Hawaii is my favorite place in the world. Teaching is my passion, music is my heart! I hope to learn how to play the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I was never looking to change my life. I was happy as a Baptist, which is the religion I grew up with; but Heavenly Father knew better. The church found me, and I am forever grateful for it. There is a spirit with this church that can not be found anywhere else. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and it has made a world of difference in my life. This church brings me happiness because I know it's where I belong. I know Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet called of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person I can be. I continually strive to share the things I've mastered, and perfect the things I have not. I know my standards, and I don't lower them for anyone. I dress modestly, refrain from swearing, and do not drink alcohol, coffee, tobacco no matter what. And I do this, not because it's a rule, but because I want to. Most importantly, I work hard to let the light of Christ shine through me.

What is the priesthood?

FRANCIS ADJABENG
THE PRIESTHOOD THE POWER AND AUTHORITY GIVEN TO MAN TO ACTS IN GODS NAME. THE SAME PRIESTHOOD THAT EXISTED IN THE ORIGINAL CHURCH EXTABLISHED BY JESUS CHRIST EXISTS IN THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINT TODAY. THE CHURCH IS DIRECTED AND LED THROUGH THIS AUTHORITY. ALL MALE WHO ARE PREPARED RECEIVE THE PRIESTHOOD IN ORDER TO HELP THE CHURCH AND SERVE HEAVENLY FATHERS CHILDREN. A MAN WITH THE PRIESTHOOD MIGHT SERVE IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS: # LEADING CONGREGATION OF THE CHURCH # PERFORMING THE ORDINANCE OF THE CHURCH, SUCH AS BAPTISM, BLESSING SACRAMENT, SEALING, ETC. # BLESSING THE SICK God expects those who hold this sacred priesthood and authority to follow the example of Jesus Christ and serve with LOVE, GENTLENESS, AND KINDNESS Show more Show less
