It was 30 years ago that I began my journey to Christ in earnest. I was a professional tennis coach, and eventually started successful businesses. Life was good! But I knew there was more. I found a book, the Book of Mormon. It claimed to be another witness of Jesus Christ—a companion to the Holy Bible. As I read, something inside was awakened. I found greater light and fuller understanding. All I learned in the Bible was emphasized and expanded. God had said that by two witnesses He would establish His word. And here was a powerful second witness.
Since that time, I have been blessed to marry my lovely bride, and to welcome two remarkable children. We have pushed forward on our “race,” as the Apostle Paul called it. We have found great joy amid challenges and heartaches. We have come closer to the Savior of the World. And we have invited many to join us. As one of our Church leaders said: “Come and bring all the truth and goodness you have, and see if we can’t add to it.”
I echo that invitation to all Christians in Lebanon and in this region. Come with us on our path toward the Savior. He will help us along the way. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He has once again called true prophets and apostles. He has restored his original Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His power and authority are again on earth—to the blessing of all. Families can be together forever. As Jesus said: “Come and see” (John 1:39). You are welcome!
