Hi I'm Caleb Forrest

I'm a soccer player, Oregonian, Beaver fan, A missionary in the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission ~ I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Corvallis, Oregon and I love the Pacific Northwest! I was raised in the Church and with the wonderful example from my awesome parents and the support of my four sisters and brother I have been able to learn and apply the Gospel that Jesus Christ taught during his ministry! I am currently serving as a full time missionary and representative of Jesus Christ. Alongside my fellow Oregonian, Elder Connor Kaegi (in the picture), I am sharing the message of the Restoration; the most important Gospel message anyone could hear! Go Beavs!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have testimony that what the Gospel teaches is true and through the atonement and forgiveness that all of the mistakes that we have made and will make can be eternally forgiven. This is only possible through our Savior, Jesus Christ.By striving to follow his teachings we can be truly happy and eventually return to live with our families after this life. I love being able to share this message with people while I'm serving in Kentucky!

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission in Kentucky which gives me a wonderful opportunity to share the gospel taught by Jesus Christ everyday for two years. I am the first of my immediate siblings to serve a mission. My Father served a mission in Germany and I have two brother in laws that served missions in the central and south America. I have several friends serving in areas around the world. In high school there wasn't a large group of members and I definitely did not take advantage of all of the opportunities to share the gospel with the people that were closest to me. However, my friends always knew that I was a Mormon and knew my standards. I am not perfect and made mistakes, but thankfully through the Atonement of Christ I will be able to overcome those weaknesses.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Caleb Forrest
Families are one of the strongest units of the Gospel. Each one of our families was chosen before we were born according to our own spirits. Our Families are here with us to help us through trials and issues that we may face as a source of security and assurance. We each have a responsibility to pass on the teachings of the Gospel and traditions of our families to our posterity and younger generations. Show more Show less
