Hi I'm Jonathan Poole

"I am a Computer Designer in the Construction Industry. I am married and have 3 brilliant sons! I'm a Mormon"

About Me

I am interested in most sports especially football and tennis. When I was 18 I taught tennis throughout the summer to children in America. Afterwards I travel parts of USA and Canada. I have always enjoyed traveling and seeing new places and hope to be able to see more of Europe. As a young family we enjoyed going camping in Wales last year and this year we are looking forward to a new adventures somewhere in the UK.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon has given me hope and helped me understand the purpose of my existence. I believe God wants all of us to have joy and be happy. I have already learned from various lessons in my life that it is not always easy to find joy. I found that the most happiness has come to me when I keep God’s commandments, remember Jesus Christ and when I am with my family. I believe if I live my life the best I can I will be able to live together with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at age 8 by my Grandad. By the time I turned 19 I had already decided to be a missionary for the Church. This was an amazing experience in my life, which helped strengthen my faith in my Savior Jesus Christ. I believe I was called by a living Prophet of God to serve for 2 years in Australia. Whilst in Australia I found lots of ways to tell people about my beliefs and had many opportunities to serve in the local community. I enjoyed telling people about a Gods plan, Jesus Christ and how families are eternal and can live together forever. When I returned to England I got married and finally found a career to be able to support my family. I studied at University later in life but this has really helped me in finding an interesting and satisfying job. At church there are many opportunities to help and serve people. I visit various people that are and are not members of the church every month. I also have time to participate in family activities at church, this gives me an opportunity to socialize with other families
