Hi I'm Les Long

I'm a Mormon and I'm 64 years old, I live in Wales and I'm currently studying a fine art degree.

About Me

I have been a member of the Mormon church for 38 years, I'm married to a wonderful Wife and we have 2 wonderful daughters, and seven absolutely glorious grandchildren. I was in the Royal Navy before I joined the Mormon Church. I have worked in Industry, H.M.Prisons and now I paint landscapes. Is the Church of Jesus Christ true? Well it depends on if you believe that Joseph Smith did have a vision of God the Father and Jesus Christ. I do, and because of that I have been blessed greatly. Do you know? Well if you are willing to do as I did you too will find out. Follow the Instructions in the Book of Mormon at Moroni 10:3-7 and try it out. Les Long.

Why I am a Mormon

A simple answer is that I know the Book of Mormon is true. How? I read it, prayed about it and asked Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, if it were true. The Spirit witnessed the truth of the Book of Mormon to me. This testimony I have is a rock in the on going storms of life today, and I can say for sure that without it I would never have achieved what I have in my life.

How I live my faith

The only way I live my faith is to be honest in who I am. That does not mean being pushy For all Gods children are loved by him and all share some of his truths. But, I testify, if one should put to the test the promises of God in the Book of Mormon, they will come to know it's truth by the power of the Holy Ghost.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Les Long
My time in this church has taught me many valuable life long lessons. One of those lessons is having faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I have always found that following his teachings have kept me on the right path all through my life and I can say, he has never let me down and never will. So I know that providing I continue on this path and ever perfect my ways through his teachings by doing all that he asks, I will come back to him. My faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is sure and true, but to achieve this requires study and obedience. I know I'm not perfect but my faith in Jesus Christ stands as a beacon for me and I hope for others. Show more Show less
