Hi I'm Arthur Adcock

I grew up in S.E.Florida. I joined the LDS church when I was in the Air Force, stationed on the island of Guam.

About Me

I am a retired Deputy Sheriff, then I drove a school bus. I love college sports, and camping. I am married, we have 22 grandchildren. I served on the city council. I served in the US Air Force and worked on B-52's. I also served in the Army National Guard. I very recently started a new hobby with HO scale model railroading. It is a lot of fun. I enjoy the outdoors and taking our travel trailer camping. Three years ago we invested in a tour to Israel and visited Jerusalem and Galilee. What a beautiful area and the feelings that you receive while you are there are very special. I better understand the scriptures, and I see why the Savior loved the Galilee area so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon (Latter-day Saint) because someone was kind enough to invite me to dinner and tell me about their religion. I was in the Air Force on the island of Guam during the Viet Nam war. They shared their love for the Savior with me and invited me to attend church with them. I continue to be a member of the church for the faith I have in the Savior, Jesus Christ and the promise that I have of being a family for eternity, not just for this life, or "until death do us part". I enjoy the socialization we experience as a congregation and I enjoy learning more about our Savior, His life, and His teachings.

How I live my faith

I served on the city council until I was asked to serve as the Bishop (ecclesiastical leader) of our ward (congregation). I love visiting the members of our ward congregation. I especially enjoy working with the youth (ages 12-18) and the young children (ages 4-11). I love teaching a Sunday School class and learning about the Savior. Service is an important part of why we are here and how we honor the Savior and thank Him for all He has done for us.
