Hi I'm Elder Cook

California born. Texas raised. Adelaide serving. Zion building.

About Me

I am the second of eight boys. I have a wonderful mother and father who have helped me along my path to a mission. My older brother served a mission in Nevada Las Vegas West. That was a great example to me and has inspired me to serve. I am currently serving a mission in the Australia Adelaide Mission. I love having fun! I love to be outdoors and doing activities such as camping, hiking, swimming, running, exploring, mountain climbing/tree climbing, canoeing, fishing, and shooting. I would much rather being outside having some sort of adventure than be inside playing video games or something of that sort. I love spending time with my family and friends. My family mean the world to me. My brothers are the best and we have heaps of fun together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have received, through study and prayer, a testimony that this is the only church with the restored gospel on the earth today. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the happiness it brings me. I love that I am able to return to live with my family in Heaven forever if I only obey God's commandments. I love hearing from our modern day Prophets and studying the words of our ancient day Prophets. I find great counsel and advice as I seek out increased learning and wisdom through their inspired words. I love being a member of Christ's church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments that are given to us by the Lord through our ancient and modern day Prophets. I exercise my faith by keeping the covenants I made at baptism. I try to follow the Spirit and seek its guidance in my life, especially now that I am out on a mission. I seek to be a good example in the way I live so that others, specifically my brothers, will want to keep God's commandments as well. I try to follow Dieter F. Uchtdorf's counsel when he said, "At all times, preach the Gospel. And, if necessary, use words." I try to do all I can to follow the example of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
