Hi I'm Caleb Cooper

I grew up in South Africa. I am serving a mission in the England Leeds mission. I'm a Mormon and proud to be one

About Me

I am a forth generation member. I lived in East London South Africa for about 7 years. My family and I then moved up to Hekpoort which is in Gauteng and we have lived on a farm there for about 13 years. I love riding my horse who is an ( arab cross boerperd ). His name is Riptide and he is amazing. I also have a sausage dog (Baby) and a Jack-russel (Biscuit). They are also both amazing and I love all of my animals. I am the oldest of 5 children, with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. My parents are still together and my family and I all have a great love for each other. I went to Krugersdorp High School and played 1st team waterpolo and rugby for 3 years. I love playing sport and I love doing water skiing on weekends. I love the outdoors and am happy to live where I do. I am so greatful to be on a mission in the England Leeds Mission, because I've already learnt so much about the love that my Lord and Saviour have for me. I have learnt how to show my love and appreciation back to them, but I know that I will never be able to repay the things that our Lord Jesus Christ has done for me. I love him so much and I am grateful for this opportunity to serve amongst his choice people in England. I love my family so much and I know that the Lord blesses them as I continue to work as hard as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born into the gospel is the biggest blessing in my life. I am so happy that my parents made the choice to be part of the church and bringing me up in the gospel, because I don't know where I would be now, without the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is the true church of Jesus Christ on Earth today and I have recieved the answers for myself and I know that it is all true. I know that Joseph Smith was the prophet that restored the church to the earth again. I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father did in fact appear to him and they told him that the true church would be restored to the earth once more. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon through the power of the Holy Ghost and that the Book of Mormon is true. READ IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. You will never make a better choice , because it will bless your life more than anything else.

How I live my faith

I have completed my 4 years of seminary and have loved every moment of it. I was called to be the young men's secretary as soon as I left young men's. Once I recieved the priesthood, I was called to be the second councilor in the young men's presidency. I was the assistant branch mission leader before I came on mission. I love going out and serving everyone who needs help. I love studying the scriptures and applying them in my life. I now have the opportunity to study in preach my gospel everyday and I am serving a mission in the England Leeds mission. I love every moment of it and I know that as I continue working hard, I can help many people come to the truth of this gospel and they can find out for themselves the truth of the things we teach. Through the power of the Holy Ghost can the truth of all things be made manifest. That is my ultimate goal. To Teach with the Spirit.
