Hi I'm David

"I'm a Ugandan.. An Electronics Engineer, lecturer and President of a charitable organisation. I love Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon."

About Me

I am an engineer and I enjoy sharing my knowledge so I have a passion in educating others by lecturing in institutions. In addition, I enjoy serving the community through offering charitable activities through a charity organisation of which I am the President. I like to adventure and to learn about other cultures and It has been a blessing to have had an opportunity to spend a couple of years in Turkey and the UK studying,working and adventuring. I love sports especially volleyball and badminton as well as watching football. I am the eldest child in my family with two younger brothers of which I enjoy take responsibility to be a good role model to them. I am proud to be the first member of my family to join the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a humble home where my parents disciplined me well and taught me at an early age the value of hard work and gaining a good reputation. I grew up attending various churches because my parents and other relatives were of diverse faiths. However, at around 25 years of age I grew a strong desire to find which sole church I would be defined to, so I resumed intense research on the practices and doctrines of the various churches I had long been attending. I felt not content in some practices in each of the churches and thus opted a personal search in reading various christian literature and the Bible which I read in its entirety. I realised that none of the churches fully practiced the contents of the Bible so I was determined to continue my research to find the best amongst them and including the Islamic faith. As my desperation grew, I asked my mother if she had any christian literature I would read, to which she referred me to her drawers. Amongst the reading materials was a pamphlet which caught my attention with the heading "the purpose of life". Reading through this booklet, i realised answers I had long yearned for. It came apparent two years prior, my mother had come across two young missionaries who had left her this pamphlet but she was not interested then, so had placed it in her drawer. The back page of this pamphlet had contacts of the church headquarters urging those interested to request for a book of mormon to learn more about Jesus Christ. I wrote a letter to Salt lake city asking for the book of mormon upon which receiving I read through out to completion before i could ask the missionaries for an appointment to meet them. I felt a sweet manifestaton that the book of mormon was true and from God. I was baptised in November 2001 and it has been my best decision ever to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints. I have enjoyed serving in various church leadership positions and continue to do so. Jesus is the Christ and He lives!

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving others through actively taking part in church roles and activities to reach out to those who need to be comforted and have their hopes regained for a brighter life and future though faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Some of the roles are those of home teacher where visits are made to members homes regularly to share with them the gospel of Jesus and to support them in their other needs. During Sunday services, I teach the youth and the new members the gospel of Jesus Christ. I also participate in organising church events and activities which bless members with the opportunity to interact with each other and have fun.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

David
The Lord requires us to be grateful of all He blesses us with. To test our faith in Him he commands us as in Malachi 3:8-10 to give a tenth of our increase that we may be blessed abundantly through our obedience. This commandment has been in effect since the days of Adam through Abraham and forever. Tithes are the Lords money used to build and run the work in the kingdom Show more Show less
