“…I can share my testimony with songs.”
“I found out about the LDS Church in Ottawa, Canada as missionaries came to talk to me about the Book of Mormon,” Kibwe reveals in an instant message. “I joined the church because I have testimony that the Book of Mormon is true.”
The Book of Mormon is a companion volume of scripture to the Bible that testifies of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is decidedly unique in Christendom for claiming that God has revealed Himself to other people who wrote about their experience in the form of scriptures The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
“What made me listen to missionaries was their sincerity and kindness,” Kibwe confesses.
Missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serve in pairs all over the world delivering a message of hope through the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Kibwe just so happen to accept the message of hope they presented.
Said Kibwe, “The restoration helps us to understand why we are on Earth and where we go after being on earth. And the restoration helps me to be Christ-like. Jesus Christ is our savior and guide.”
Kibwe felt his life was preserved by God to serve His will. He stated that, “I…[had] a car accident in Europe & a snowmobile accident in Whistler, BC, Canada. I survived both accidents! I think God was with me from that [point]. I believed that God wants me to work for him. After being baptized, I recorded the Cd Album BLACK MORMON”
When asked why he used music to express his faith he said, “I chose music because I can share my testimony with songs!”
