Hi I'm Luke

I Was born in South Africa but brought up in Australia. I am a carpenter. I love the GYM! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love the gym. I enjoy movies, the beach and carpentry.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but i was never fully actively involved, i went because my parents made me. When i turned 17 i stopped going entirely and started doing all the things that i was taught not to do. I moved in with my girlfriend and thought that my life was pretty good. I thought i was happy, i enjoyed going to parties with her, i enjoyed the way i was living. My brother was the one who helped me see that i was not truly happy. I eventually told my girlfriend that i wanted to pursue the advice of my brother and come to church. I ended it wither her. a few weeks latter came my brothers wedding day. I saw my brother and his wife walk out of the temple and i have never seen people look as purely happy as they did on that day. It was right then that i realised that it was not truly happy. Right then i made the decision to start coming back to church and it was the hardest thing i have had ever had to do. I started paying my tithing, then i started reading the scriptures and then i started praying. I was coming up close to one year of being back at church and still i felt nothing. I had all sorts of temptations come into my life at this time and i nearly gave up. But i pressed on and was ready to receive the Melchizedek priesthood. My brother gave me the blessing and i have never felt anything more Strong in my life, it was at that moment god testified to me through the power of the Holy Ghost that that what i was doing was right and i was in the right place. It took me a whole year to have my first spiritual experience but i have never done anything more worthwhile in my life. I have now been back at church for 2 years and i am 6 weeks away from serving my mission. I hope that i can help others experience the joy that the gospel has brought to my life.

How I live my faith

I pay my tithing every week, I attend all my classes at church and i am currently preparing for a mission. I know my Savior lives and i know that this is the only true church on the earth today. I know that this gospel wouldn't be on the earth without Joseph smith having translated The Book Of Mormon. I am proud to be a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter day Saints.
