Hi I'm Elder Potnuru

I grew up in Vizag..... now I'm serving as a missionary in India New Delhi Mission..... I'm a Mormon....

About Me

Hi my name is Potnuru Suresh, I'm 23 years old, I'm from Srikakulam, I came to the Vizag on July, 27, 2014.Now I live in New Delhi and I finished my Post Graduation (M.B.A) at Miracle Educational Society. My family has four members. After completing my P.G I worked as a Sales Executive & Carpenter.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Hindu background. I thought Church or Christians are a different religion and also Church was a group of Christian people gathering together to worship Jesus Christ. after that they gave some money or donations to church but I went with my friends to participate the Church meetings because I like it. After Church they would gave some snacks also. Right now we have many Church's on this world. they taught good things but they don't have authority as well as fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to teach the doctrine. Because today churches are look like a business place because I saw in my college days. God loves so much in this world that's why He sent His beloved son Jesus Christ. and Jesus died on the cross and He was in 3rd day resurrected, Jesus chose apostles to lead his followers. But that ancient church was eventually destroyed and the apostles were killed. After centuries of darkness, I am so happy to know that God spoke again in 1830 and rebuilt the original church of Christ. It is such a blessing to have apostles on the earth again, giving our families a clear voice to follow. Our Heavenly Father restored His church on this earth through the prophet Joseph Smith because He loves this world that's why He will give opportunity to all mankind. I testify this church is true because I applied every teachings in my life. we have Jesus Christ authority and full gospel about His earthly ministry. know this church leading by the current prophet in this latter-days because the book of Mormon is evidence of this world. I choose to be a Latter-day Saint because this guidance, peace and truth protects me from the dangers of the world and leads me to happiness every day.

How I live my faith

Before I use to thought am single and I don't have any big responsibilities to fulfill in my life but when I introduced this church through member missionary work at that time I came to know my purpose here on earth then I started to read the book of Mormon but it's very hard to me to understand that book but later it helps me a lot to find peace and happiness in my life. Because the Lord restored his church once again here on earth through the prophet of Joseph Smith.I know this LDS church is Lord's church not men church and the LDS church leads by the current prophet because God revels His words only prophet.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Elder Potnuru
Our Father always same because He said: I'm same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. So He chose one boy in this last dispensation, the boy name was Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith was the prophet in this last dispensation. The book of Mormon is the evidence is the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ and Joseph Smith was the prophet. Because Re-store means Re-establish so what Our Heavenly Father Re-established in this last dispensation because some of the God words missing in this dispensation that's why He re-established His gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith because the gospel bless our families....like physically, spiritually.
