Hi I'm Caleb J. Smith

I'm a missionary in Oaxaca, México, I love to sing and play guitar, I love Batman, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 5 people: my parents, my little sister, and my little brother. My family means the world to me. I would do anything for them! I love music. Music is my life. I love to play guitar and sing. Music is such a powerful tool in the world. I am so grateful to our Heavenly Father for giving us music. I love watching movies. My favorites are the "The Dark Knight Trilogy." I love Batman! I love everything he stands for, and his goal to help others by forgetting himself. I believe that if we all learn to think less about ourselves and think more about others, the world will be a better place.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised Mormon. The Gospel has brought me so much happiness. Is it hard to be a Mormon? Yes. But is it worth it? Absolutely! As Mormon's, we all have trials and hardships to go through, just like everyone else. But because of the Church, I have gained a knowledge, testimony, and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He has helped me through all my trials, and I know He can help you too. All you have to do is ask.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in Oaxaca, México. It is very difficult, but very worth it. I love being here and serving the people of Oaxaca. It´s amazing to be following the footsteps of my Savior, Jesus Christ and preaching his Gospel. I've come to know Him better, and learn more of what He went through. Serving a mission is difficult, but I wouldn't have it any other way! This Church is true, and Christ lives.

What is faith?

Caleb J. Smith
Faith is hoping for things which are not seen, but which are true. For example, we can't see the air around us. But is it still there? Yes! The same goes for God. We can't see God with our physical eyes, but He is there. Having faith is trusting in Him and having confidence that He knows what He's doing and that He knows how to help us. Show more Show less
