Hi I'm Sid Kooyman

Some call me a Mormon. I call myself a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I am a convert.

About Me

I am a retired U.S. Army infantry officer. I like fishing, traveling, canoeing, and white water rafting. I used to scuba dive, but do not any more.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I read the Book of Mormon, prayed to know if it was true, and received an answer that it is. I also prayed to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet. Again, I felt very deeply that the answer is yes. For these reasons I joined. Nothing since that date in 1972 have done anything to change my mind.

How I live my faith

I am the bishop for my church unit. My wife and I have served a mission for our church. We plan on serving a mission again. We serve in our community every week.
